The One Meal a Day (OMD) program is a great new food plan that can help both your body and the environment. As Suzy Amis Cameron, author of OMD and wife of the director James Cameron, explains: “Swapping one dairy- or meat-based meal for a plant-based meal every day can save your health and the planet.” Here’s how…
Now, what do you think—are you ready to give it a try? Remember: It’s just one meal a day. OMD. Start small, start right where you are, and plan your first meal. You don’t have to overthink it—you can just make a plan, and you’ll already be living the OMD way.
Eating more plants is the easiest, least stressful, lowest-maintenance way of making a significant impact in helping to save the world—without spending an extra cent. As Dr. Katz, says, “We can put solar panels on our roof, but we need other people to develop the solar panel technology. We don’t need anybody’s help to eat more beans and lentils and less beef.”
OMD achieves so many objectives simultaneously:
- It provides a built-in, daily opportunity to take concrete steps to help fight climate change.
- It creates an easy-to-follow framework to increase your and your loved ones’ intake of fruits and vegetables.
- It cuts intake of inflammatory meat and dairy products by 30 percent.
- It reduces your and your family’s risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, and begins to extend your life span.
- It makes eating well and caring for the earth feasible—and fun—for the whole family.
- It allows you to care for your family, friends, partner, and self, all at the same time.
