SAMANTHA HENDRICKS Plant Based Nourishment

Imagine every time you took a bite of food, you nourished your body, did something beneficial for the planet, and were taking care of your community — all at the same time. That’s what a plant based diet is about. The mass production and consumption of meat and dairy is one of the most destructive things humans do. We know what’s on our plates impacts our health and the planet, dramatically. From heart disease to climate change, there’s no shortage of research that shows how devastating meat and dairy is for our bodies and the Earth. There is a major opportunity for change at the intersection of food, health and the environment. My campaign shines a positive light on the benefits of plant based eating. It aims to influence the public into making small diet changes and realize that each meal has the power to heal our bodies and the planet.
