Imagine if you could make a difference for animals every single day. You don’t even have to do anything extraordinary. Every meal is a chance to make a difference. It’s as simple as what you choose to eat! And, it isn’t about missing out – it’s about adding compassion.
The more Kiwis who sit down to enjoy climate-friendly meals, the better the health outcomes - not only for our environment - but for our population. It is time that New Zealand’s dietary guidelines were updated to reflect the wide-reaching benefits of increasing plant-based meals.
Every meal is a statement of our values and a chance to create the world we want to live in.
Get ready to change the world. Think that sounds huge? It is. Choosing to eat plant-based foods not only saves countless animals’ lives, it’s also the best way to protect the environment. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to live a long, happy, healthy life!
There are so many delicious ways to eat plant-based versions of your favourite meals. Whether it’s lentil bolognese, pulled jackfruit tacos, spicy bean burritos or homemade black bean burgers, there has never been a more taste bud-tempting time to try eating with kindness!
Discover a whole new world full of flavours! From slow-roasted Moroccan tagines, veggie dumplings, spicy curries and ‘creamy’ risotto, to falafel, tabbouleh and enchiladas, Global cuisine offers lots of delicious meat-free meals – just dive in, and find out what the world has to offer.
A great way to stay motivated is to connect with like-minded people: attend public events, join a vegan dining group or read up on the subjects that first inspired you to try plant-based eating. Volunteering for SAFE is a rewarding way to get involved in animal advocacy and to meet other compassionate people
Challenge yourself. Try new foods. Step outside your comfort zone and think of it as an adventure. By eating kind you’ll soon feel great about the positive impacts of your actions for yourself, animals and the planet.
Take action to combat the climate emergency, contribute towards a kinder Aotearoa for animals, and follow in the footsteps of plant-powered athletes – what better way to kick off the new year?!
