What is One Part Plant?
OPP is an eating philosophy and mission; it means at least one meal a day is made up of real, whole, plant-based foods. One. OPP is not some crazy diet with a list of forbidden foods you can never eat again, and it doesn’t require you to join a culty food tribe with a million rules. OPP is about making plants the star of the show for one meal a day. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner—you pick. Once a day you’ll create, pick up, or order in (no shame in that) a plant-based meal.
What does whole foods plant-based mean?
Foods that are minimally processed or not processed at all—veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. Plant-based means that these foods come from the ground and the trees and are not derived from animals (although many plant-based eaters consume honey).
Now, it doesn’t mean you have to have a plain bowl of brown rice with steamed broccoli on top (the worst) – it can mean making a fat-ass Sweet Potato Burger with Some Fries or a big bowl of gooshy Pasta. It means doing your own thing in your kitchen. It means not feeling like it has to be all or nothing and doing what’s best for you.
If you’re up for it, start today. If you’re an “I’ll start tomorrow” type of person, start tomorrow. Just start. And if you’re loving it and feeling good, please share!
