Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen and football star Tom Brady have a plant-based powerhouse family! Gisele recently told People magazine that her entire family, including her four-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son, eat a mostly plant-based diet. “We all love it. It’s not only good for our health and makes us feel good, but it is also good for the planet!” shared the model.

Gisele also noted that she and her two kids are actively involved in planning what ends up on their plate. The family has a home garden where they get many of the ingredients for their meals. Gisele explained to People that she wants her kids to connect with nature.”In a way, we are all Earth trustees, and we need to make sure we leave it in a better place for future generations,” Gisele said to People.

The legendary supermodel’s thoughts on plant-based eating aren’t really surprising. As a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Gisele has raised awareness on several environmental issues, including deforestation. Just last year in a clip from National Geographic’s Years of Living Dangerously, Gisele was visibly shaken when she learned that agriculture is responsible for 65 percent of deforestation in the Amazon. As a Brasil-native, this news undoubtedly hit her particularly hard. Luckily, making the connection between animal agriculture’s destructive nature and what goes on her plate was an easy one for her to make – and she has no qualms about sharing this incredibly empowering fact.

It also seems that Gisele is not alone in spreading the word about the positive impact of eating more plant-based foods as Tom Brady recently launched a line of plant-based performance meals through Purple Carrot, a plant-based meal delivery service. Brady’s line, called TB12, offers high-protein meals for athletes and others active individuals, proving that you don’t need meat to be a high-performance athlete. We must say, these two are quite the power couple!

What YOU Can Do

Feeling inspired? Knowing all that we do about the impact of meat consumption on the environment and animals, we are faced with a choice – either we can continue to be sold into this destructive industry … or we can choose better.

You can start eating for the planet by doing nothing more than choosing a delicious plant-based meal over one laden with animal products. If you look at it from a personal perspective, you can cut your own carbon footprint in half just by leaving meat off your plate for one year. (Plus save a lot of water, redirect grain for people to eat, and help protect endangered species…)

You can #EatForThePlanet starting today. Just follow the three simple steps below.

1. Moderate: Limit consumption of your favorite meats like beef, lamb, pork, etc.

2. Replace: Try to swap animal-based products in your daily diet with vegan alternatives (milk, butter, mayo, cheese, grilled chicken, beef crumbles, sausages, cold cuts, etc.)

3. Embrace: Add plant-based whole foods (local and organic when possible) to your diet like greens, fresh fruits, and vegetables, whole grains, plant proteins like lentils, nuts/seeds, beans, tofu, etc.

As Nil Zacharias, the co-founder of One Green Planet says, “Eat in a way that nourishes you without starving the planet.”

We all have the power to create a better future for our children, and the countless animals we share the planet with, by making one easy swap. If you’re ready to start doing this in your own life, check out One Green Planet’s #EatForThePlanet campaign.

i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by Dr fuman , i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. Three months ago a friend suggested that I try herbal medicine; from a very powerful herbal doctor called Dr fuman . I looked up his blog on the internet site and indeed he have had immense success with his product. There were lot of persons posting their testimony about how he cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result just came out negative. My doctor was shocked how i got cured. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony.
