Plant Based Diet

Why eat (& drink) more plants

Move over, meat. Or at least scoot over a little and make some room—our veggie friends are eyeing center plate. That’s because more and more people are recognizing the benefits of meals based on fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and grains. Plus, consuming more plants can be easier on the earth, too.

Eat to your health

Nothing says you have to go vegan, or even vegetarian. Burger-lovers and bean-lovers—we love ‘em all! Improving your diet can be as easy as slipping in an extra serving or two of fruit, veggies, nuts or soy every day.

 Silk® can be a great place to begin! 

Plants were the first to go green!

Nothing against our friends the cow, the chicken and the pig. But getting them from the field to the dinner table can take a lot more resources than eating plants, which naturally live lower on the food chain. So when you work a few more plant-based foods into your routine, you’re doing something smart for your body and the planet.

Did you know that Silk Original soy, almond or coconut beverage uses on average 900 gallons less water than conventional dairy milk per half gallon?2 And that’s just one example of how plant-based diets can help protect and conserve the Earth’s limited resources.
