Tap into the Power of Plants with Meatless Monday’s Plant Protein Power!

April 23rd, 2018

One of the frequent questions posed by people choosing to eat meatless foods on Meatless Monday is “Will they get enough protein?” Indeed, it’s possible to easily get a full day’s protein without eating meat, and plant-based protein is an excellent choice. Meatless Monday is thrilled to announce our Plant Protein Power package, which outlines how easy and healthy it is to choose plant proteins!

With our team of experts at Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, Meatless Monday has put together a run-down of how plants can replace animal-based protein sources and the best plants for the job. Plant protein is filled with nutrients and fiber that help strengthen and repair muscles, even in high-performance athletes. Americans also eat 1 ½ times more protein than they need each day. By switching to plant-based protein, you can also avoid eating too much processed animal protein and red meat, which increases the risk of colorectal cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

In addition to its health benefits, following a more plant-based diet is also great for the environment! Plant-based food choices can save water, conserve energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By cutting down on meat once a week, you can make a difference for the health of the planet.

Plant-based protein sources like grains, beans, and veggies can also cost less than meat, making your Meatless Monday a healthy choice for your wallet!

Plant Protein Power has valuable, research-based and scientifically sound information about incorporating more plant-based foods into diet. When you’re planning a Meatless Monday meal, this is a guide that gives you many healthy and delicious alternatives to meat.
