OMD: Your Plant-Based Support System.

Ready to swap at least one meal a day with something plant-based? Leaving meat and dairy off the menu can feel like a challenge in a world where we’re inundated with bacon-wrapped-everything and gratuitously gooey videos of hamburgers all over our social media feeds.

Change can be hard, and that’s ok.

To help, OMD has created some step-by-step guides and other plant-based lifestyle resources for you to feel supported in trying to eat at least one plant-based meal a day. Ready to get started? Dive on in!

Starter Guide

Eating plant-based is about abundance. By leaving meat and dairy off your plate, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to get adventurous with food. Think about it as a trip around the world. Now that you’re taking a vacation from philly cheesesteak town, you can give yourself permission to explore new cuisines you might have never tried before — like Indian, Thai or Ethiopian.

Canning Guide

Canning your favorite fruits, veggies, sauces and even soups or stews is an adventure in experimentation and a fun way to enjoy seasonal delights sustainably all year round. Busy parents are also going to love how canning saves time. Hungry little bellies craving out-of-season sweet nectarines or tangy clementines will be in for a treat if there’s extra stored away. And (if it’s canned) mom’s special marinara sauce can drench plates of spaghetti in the middle of the week when she doesn’t have time to whip some up from scratch.

Get creative. Check out more ways you can explore how canning can bring some fun and ease to your plant-based routine.
