Fortunately, you hold the power to transform our broken food system. By reducing your meat consumption and eating plant-based a few meals a week, World Animal Protection expects that factory farming will be phased out. As the overall demand for factory-farmed meat declines, a shift towards family farming and practices that are more sustainable and kinder to animals will replace low welfare practices, such as extreme confinement, the overuse of antibiotics, and brutal mutilations.
So how to get started? First, take our pledge to #EatLessMeat. It takes just a few seconds and you’ll receive a monthly email with tips and tricks on reducing your meat consumption from our Meat Reduction Campaign Manager, Joe Loria.
Next, you’ll want to prepare your meals in advance. While you can find loads of delicious plant-based recipes on the internet and in cookbooks, why not check out three of World Animal Protection’s corporate partners that take plant-based foods to the next level of ease and convenience, all while giving back to help animals? From meal planners with drool-worthy recipes to frozen meals conveniently delivered to your home, and kits delivered straight to your doorstep including fresh ingredients with easy recipes for you to prepare, these three partners will make reducing your meat consumption fun and easy!
1. The Phytogenic Chef
The Phytogenic Chef, a plant-based meal planning service that aims to not only inspire but also educate others on the value of living a comprehensive and sustainable whole foods plant-based lifestyle. The brand was born out of chef Marco Knox’s first-hand experience of how whole food, plant-based diets have true healing powers and benefits to human health. Through eating purely plant-based, Marco has reversed his medical conditions, become stronger and healthier, and is living life to his full potential.
Veestro was founded by siblings Mark and Monica, who grew up in Costa Rica where fresh fruits and vegetables were part of their daily meals. During Mark’s former career in finance, he often found himself hungry and time-starved. When looking for fast meal options, he could never find healthy foods that were easy and convenient to make. That’s when Veestro was born with the help of his sister.
They believe in pura vida, a happy, healthy way of life and wanted to bring that energy to the modern American lifestyle through their brand.
Veestro makes fully prepared, 100% plant-based meals and delivers them to your door anywhere in the continental US. Their chefs use organic ingredients to handcraft every meal, so you don’t have to chop, cook, or clean. With Veestro , all you have to do is heat, eat, and love.
