If you’re one of the many people that has recently binged on the latest Netflix documentary, The Game Changers, then like us, you might be feeling extra inspired to mix up your diet and ramp up the number of plants you are eating! 

The film follows world-class athletes who have made the switch to a plant-based diet, resulting in better performance throughout their careers. 

Almost every healthy diet can be optimized by eating mostly plants so if there is one strong and powerful message to come out of this trending health documentary, it is that the plant-based diet is going to continue to shine in the spotlight. 

The great news is that plant-based diets are inherently rich in disease-fighting fiber and phytonutrients, simply because you are eating more vegetables, fruits, and grains! 

With more options than ever before, switching to a plant-based diet is easy. Meat replacements are lining the shelves, plant-based milk options are readily available, and must-have plant-based pantry ingredients are available in most supermarkets!
