What people are saying
“It was a pleasure to try plant-based food for 10 days. We will continue to increase vegetables in our diet and think about various plant-based ingredients and cooking methods. Thank you for creating a meaningful challenge!”
“Because I run every day, I’m used to eating meat or egg with every meal. Since I joined the 10-Day Challenge, I’ve realised that plant-based food is not only tasty, but also good for me and good for the environment. It was fun to join the Challenge with a group of friends. We encouraged each other!”
“I usually have plant-based meals but having opportunities like this 10-day challenge makes me realise again how enjoyable and fulfilling it is to come up with delicious and easy recipes using only plant-based ingredients! Reducing meat consumption is not only about alleviating the suffering of animals but is also essential for preventing environmental degradation and, ultimately, for the graceful living of humans. I hope Plant Forward will continue to spread plant-based meals even more in the future.”
“Me and my husband tried plant-based food before but this is our first time to do it for 10 consecutive days! It was hard because we run out of ideas but we have a vegan shop next door so we buy from them sometimes. We will try to continue the plant-based journey at least once a day! The challenge is fun and there are also many other posts that can be made/cooked at home!”
