What if there was a way of eating that may help us live healthier for longer and protect the future of our planet, too?
The good news is that evidence now shows a plant-based diet may offer us exactly that – and straight-talking nutritionist Simon Hill has done the hard work translating the science into actionable advice for everyday life.
Through 3 parts the Proof is in the Plants will walk you through why we are confused about what to eat, how our food choices affect our health and how to make changes to your plate to lead a healthy plant-based lifestyle.
The Proof is in the Plants is a triumphant tour de force of modern nutritional science that delivers the knowledge and actionable steps that we all need for human and planetary health. The secrets of longevity, disease prevention, and environmental protection are unlocked in this journey through hundreds of research studies that’s captivating, eye-opening and life-changing. If I had my way, this would be essential reading for all of humanity. We’d all live happier, healthier lives by harnessing the knowledge in this book.”
Simon Hill is the founder of the hugely popular Plant Proof podcast and blog of the same name, and a nutritionist and qualified physiotherapist. On top of his formal education, Simon spends hours and hours deciphering scientific studies so he can break down how to fuel your body to promote longevity and reduce the chance of developing disease while simultaneously achieving whatever health and fitness goals you may have. He is the plant-based food contributor to Chris Hemsworth’s fitness app, Centr, and in 2019 Simon opened a plant-based restaurant, Eden, in his Sydney neighbourhood of Bondi.
On theme with one of the important pillars of the book—planetary health—100% of the proceeds Simon receives will be donated to Half Cut, a not-for-profit organisation that is protecting the Daintree Rainforest from deforestation and rewilding parts of the world that have already experienced deforestation.
For every book sold, we will save 2 sqm of rainforest. This means together, as a community, through The Proof is in the Plants, we will help defend the natural world.
