A plant-based diet can be loosely defined but refers to different vegetarian diets that eliminate meat, milk, eggs, and overall animal products. Some benefits of a plant-based diet include steady weight normalization without hunger, weight management, high in carbohydrates, and better cholesterol. Since plant-based meals mostly include fruits, vegetables, seeds, and whole grains, they have the benefit of minerals, increased vitamins, antioxidants, and more. In addition, plant-based diets help cut the emissions in the world by at least 70% due to less production of meat and dairy products*. In the last few years, you’ve probably noticed the progression of plant-based and plant-forward meals increasing in restaurants and grocery stores. We knew this trend was coming so we created six “Power Brands” which are concepts with a single plant ingredient and a simplified menu.
