The #planetaryhealthchallenge is based on the EAT-Lancet findings that introduce the planetary health diet – the optimal diet for people and planet. Join us by eating more vegetables, fruits, legumes and nuts, and less meat, fish and diaries from February 15 to March 15.
Every day we will inspire you with practical tips, tempting recipes, interviews with cool chefs, podcast episodes or other surprises. Let’s waste less food and eat more plants! Who is with us? Follow us on Instagram @eatfoundation for more.
What is the planetary health diet?
The planetary health diet is a global reference diet for adults that is symbolically represented by half a plate of fruits, vegetables and nuts. The other half consists of primarily whole grains, plant proteins (beans, lentils, pulses), unsaturated plant oils, modest amounts of meat and dairy, and some added sugars and starchy vegetables.
The diet is quite flexible and allows for adaptation to dietary needs, personal preferences and cultural traditions. Vegetarian and vegan diets are two healthy options within the planet health diet but are personal choices.
