Making the Switch to a Plant-Based Diet

Resolving to end this year healthier than ever before by following a plant-based diet or even just eating more greens? If so, you are not alone! With tons of resources, recipes, and 100% organic plant-based supplements, Ground-Based Nutrition is here to help guide you in your journey to achieve optimal health and wellness. So get ready for success and read on to learn how you can make a few healthy changes to a much greener lifestyle.

What’s It All About?

Following a plant-based diet that provides quality nutrition can help your body to perform and feel its best, but understanding why and how will set you up for long-term success. Dive into research and learn as much as you can about the plant-based diet and the greener lifestyle. Our wellness page is continually updated with new educational and inspirational content and is an excellent resource.

Start Fresh

Entering a new year and setting new goals can be invigorating with a chance to start off fresh! Get started in your kitchen pantry, cabinets, and refrigerator by cleaning out any food or beverage items that will not be included in your plant-based diet. Not quite sure what to keep or toss? A general rule of thumb is that if the ingredients on the nutrition facts label are too hard to pronounce or you don’t know what they are, then you probably shouldn’t eat it.

Plan a Menu

Planning your menus with plant-based meals that taste good, are easy to prepare, and provide the necessary vitamins and nutrients can seem challenging. However, with a little online research, you can access various plant-based menus and recipes that have been tested and tried by the experts – it is up to you to experiment and see what works for you! Be sure to check out our recipe page for a variety of refreshing, delicious, and healthy plant-based recipes.

Pack Your Plant-Based Diet Snacks

Following a plant-based diet in an American culture can be somewhat challenging, where the typical diet often includes fatty animal proteins and processed foods of extreme proportions. Whenever you are on the go or in a bind, healthy plant-based options aren’t always so easy to access at most restaurants and convenience stores. Ensure success with your plant-based diet by being prepared. Whenever you leave home, pack healthy snacks with you just in case. A blender bottle with a couple scoops of Superfood Protein and a piece of fresh fruit makes for the perfect traveling snack – just add water and shake to enjoy!

Getting Support

Making changes is always easier when you have the right support. Seek out someone you know that has been successful creating and following a plant-based diet to serve as a mentor, his/her experience and motivation can be invaluable. Joining a social group that promotes your greener lifestyle can be a great form of support, and many of these can be found online, which offers even more convenience and accessibility. Most importantly, be sure to communicate your goals to better your health with family and friends, their understanding and support of your goals can make all the difference when it comes to success.
