Vegan. It’s the new mainstream. Nowadays, plant-based diets are well recognized by physicians, animal welfare experts, and environmental scientists for being an optimal diet in more ways than one. For instance, a recent report found that significantly more people could be fed by cultivating plant-based crops rather than raising livestock for food. Another report found that 20.6 million animals can be saved by eating vegetarian once a week for a decade. Vegan diets have a significantly lower carbon footprint than animal-based diets, and Harvard research found that a plant-based diet could prevent at least one-third of early deaths.

So, if you’re looking to eat more plant-based foods to improve your health, mitigate climate change, or be kinder to animals, here are 30 recipes for a perfectly plant-based June.
