In a recent survey, MyFitnessPal found that 90% of our members still eat meat, with 60% reporting they eat the same amount of meat as they did five years ago. Though eating meat can provide rich amounts of protein and certain vitamins, incorporating plant-based meals into your diet is not only good for you — it’s good for our planet.
To celebrate Earth Month and bring awareness of the impact of our food consumption to our members, MyFitnessPal is launching an in-app Eat Green Plan, a 14-day guide full of quick tips to reduce your environmental footprint, strategies for picking low-carbon impact foods, and other ways to reduce waste.
In addition to discovering how you can best reduce your carbon “foodprint,” we’re giving you some delicious meatless alternatives to our most-logged recipes.
Recipes include Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Curry, Cauliflower Gnocchi with Eggplant Ragu, Butternut Squash Black Bean Chili, and more. Get these recipes from the Eat Green Plan’s (plant-based!) Recipe Collection.
