World Vegetarian Day 2021: Our top plant-based picks
Today is World Vegetarian Day! Plant-based food has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, and if you’re looking to feature more vegetarian meals in your week, you’re in luck.
Whether you’re looking for a flavoursome, filling lunch or a sweet treat, there’s something for everyone. Plus, no matter if you’re working from home or heading into the office, you can enjoy a plant-based meal wherever you are.
Benefits of eating a plant based diet
There are plenty of benefits in including more vegetarian and plant-based meals in your diet. That’s not to say you have to go hell for leather and become a full blown vegan overnight, though. Simply replacing one or two meals a week with a vegetarian option is a great place to start!
- - A veggie diet can help fight climate change and reduce the negative impact on the environment. Caring for our planet has never been more important.
- - Vegetarian diets have been associated with improved health, including a reduced risk of heart disease and lower blood pressure. Healthy employees = happy employees.
- - Did you know that there are an estimated 800 ‘mega-farms’ in the UK alone? Encourage your team to oppose factory farming by encouraging plant-based eating in the office.
