EAT BETTER for Better Well-Being

EAT BETTER - Plant Slant-1EAT BETTER - 80% rule-1



What does eating better mean? It’s not about constantly dieting or eliminating some of your favorite foods forever. It’s about consuming fewer processed foods, adding more plant-based foods to your diet, cutting out or cutting back on meat and sugar, and eating less overall. Centenarians in the original Blue Zones regions of the world eat with a Plant Slant; 95% of their diet is rooted in plant-based foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, tubers, nuts, and beans. You too can eat like a centenarian and improve your well-being by making small tweaks to your diet and creating healthier eating habits over time.
