The Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World

Staff Review: "The Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World" by Marco Borges


Marco Borges, CEO and founder of 22 Days Nutrition, created Greenprint, a set of guidelines helping people to make the transition to plant-based eating. This book is not only packed with those helpful guidelines, but it's also packed with tantalizing recipes, shopping lists, and meal plans to get you started. I especially appreciated the introduction that included specific studies illustrating the health benefits of eating plant based (live 4-7 years longer!) and the positive environmental impacts of going plant-based (cut down your carbon footprint by 1,560 kilograms of carbon dioxide annually!). A great resource for those starting out on the transition to either more plant-based meals or a complete transition (or those of us who just want more recipes!) I also loved reading this book as my favorite plant-based protein bars are made by 22 Days Nutrition!
