Helping to shape a nation where diet-driven illness does not exist.
To enhance health and wellness through plant-based whole foods.
We collaborate and partner with others to further the knowledge, consumption, and enjoyment of plant-based whole foods.
What Are Plant-Based Whole Foods?
Plant-based whole foods include fruits, vegetables, tubers, beans, lentils, seeds, whole grains, and legumes in their whole, unrefined, or minimally refined form. This category does not include processed foods or animal products such as meats, poultry, fish, dairy, or eggs.
