At our recent OPL Summit, we had a three-course, veggie-forward potluck dinner for eight people, and it was a party for the senses. We used the Planetary Diet as our guide for the party menu and let each amateur chef chose a favorite recipe to share. The EAT-Lancet Commission created the Planetary Diet is an eating approach that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and plant proteins, such as beans and lentils. Meat, dairy, sugar, and starchy vegetables play a minor role on the plate. To learn more, read our blog, Now is the Time to Adopt the Flexible and Healthy Planetary Diet.
Eight OPL staff members each made a dish, and the resulting Planetary Diet menu was inspiring. Of course, every meal is complemented by great conversation and a pleasing environment, and we had the perfect makings for a memorable dinner party!
