A plant-based diet comes with many great benefits for both our health and the environment. However, many people are reluctant to give up their favorite pastime of throwing some beef burgers on the grill. Dr. Praeger’s understands that it’s not always easy to adopt a plant-based diet. Many people have eaten meat all their lives, and it’s never easy to change lifelong habits. Instead, focus on incorporating new habits by taking small steps such as trying a plant-based burger.
At Dr. Praeger’s we believe in creating healthy, sustainable foods that offer that familiar meaty taste and texture you desire without harming your health or the environment. One of the biggest strides that can be made towards a sustainable future—as well as better health—is simply reducing intake of animal products. Meatless Monday is a good place to start introducing plant-based meals to your family. After a few weeks of meatless Mondays, try adding another meatless day to your week until you find a good balance that works for everyone.
Dr. Praeger’s new Perfect line of products is helping people adopt more plant-based eating habits without compromising on taste and satisfaction.

Why Eat a Plant-Based Diet?
Studies show that a plant-based diet can significantly reduce inflammation in the body and reduce the risks of many diseases. The resource-intensive practices that are required to meet the incredibly high demand for meat and animal products globally is also a main contributor to climate change and the degradation of the natural environment. Sustainability has become a very important point of concern for many eco-minded individuals.
Reductions in the consumption of meat and animal products can have tremendous positive effects on the environment over time. Additionally, many physicians and registered dietitians agree that over-consumption of animal products (which the western diet typically does) can have negative consequences on our health and quality of life. Those negative consequences typically include poor energy levels, higher blood cholesterol, diabetes/pre-diabetes and much more. A plant-based diet consists of little or no animal fats and increased fiber and antioxidants by consuming more fruits and vegetables. You can find plenty of fiber and antioxidants in most Dr. Praeger’s Perfect line products.
