Welcome to Plantuary
Start the New Year with a New Intention
Forget restrictive resolutions, this year we’re starting 2022 off with a simple intention: eat more plants.
At Unite for HER, we know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition, and eating in a plant-based or plant-centered way doesn’t mean you have to be vegan or vegetarian. It simply means you intend to eat more plants! So, we’re officially proclaiming January 2022 as Plantuary – a fun and approachable way to help everyone not only make healthy upgrades, but find new ways to squeeze in an extra serving of veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, whole grains, and herbs and spices!
Join us throughout the month for new recipes, cooking demonstrations, live virtual events, and more!
Find inspiration in the kitchen with instructional videos by Erin and Michele.
All recipes featured this month can be found here.
Meet our Culinary Nutrition Team
Our approach to food and nutrition is one of abundance. In other words, we don’t focus on the “bad” foods or center our message on what a person should be eating less of. In fact, it’s the very opposite. We help our community shift their intention to the foods they want to make more room for in their meals, on their plates and in their overall life. This shift means our Registered Dietitians will meet you where you are and provide guidance that will work for you and your family.
