What will you accomplish because of plants?

Here at Swich, we are rooted firmly in a love for plants. It’s because of plants that we feel fueled, happy, empowered, creative, nourished, energized, and strong. It’s because of plants our bodies can lift heavy things, play our favorite activities, explore the world, and hug our loved ones. And it’s because of plants our kitchens are a haven for renewal, sustenance, and happiness.

As we prepare for the holiday season and the start of a new year, we are reflecting on the purpose and mission of Swich – to teach the world to cook for better health. We have so many exciting updates and projects coming up, and today we’re kicking things off with the launch of our Because of Plants campaign.

Plants = life 

“In the world of medicine, if I put you on a pill, I could see you back every three months for the rest of your life. That’s how we make money in medicine. If I put you on a plant-based diet and you get better, I may never see you again.” – James Bennie, MD

Because of Plants is our way of showing love for the full life a plant-rich diet gives us. A plant-based diet is known to lower our risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, certain types of cancer, obesity, and stroke. It’s also shown to boost our mood and overall cognitive health.

Beyond all those stunning benefits, adding more plant protein from sources like legumes, whole grains, and nuts is also shown to help us live longer lives. In a review published in 2020 in the BMJ, a three percent increase in daily plant protein was associated with a five percent lower risk of premature death from all causes. 

All this to say, there’s no denying plants are absolutely essential to our lives and future generations.
