Welcome to 2019!

We have some big plans this year to increase our impact for farmed animals and protect the planet, but we need to stay fueled to accomplish them. And so do you!

Since it’s the New Year, it’s high time we trade up for some new, exciting recipes. Whether you’re fresh from the garden or a seasoned plant-based veteran, any good cook knows that to improve your skills, you need to mix it up. Plus, eating the same thing day after day can get boring fast…

To keep your cookbook appropriately spiced, here are some tasty recipes to help you #EatPlantsForAChange all year long!
