Plant Power Day: 7th March 2019

'Go Big On Plants' with these delicious new recipes

Plant Power Day is back on 7th March 2019, and Alpro is calling on the nation to ‘Go Big on Plants’ and make plant-based foods the star of the show for the day.

It’s as simple as bringing veggies, fruits, whole grains, pulses, legumes, nuts and seeds from the side of the plate to front and centre – because this way of eating is good for us, and good for our planet… And it only takes one day to make a difference!

Did you know that if you ‘Go Big on Plants’ for just one day, you can save 1,500 litres of water? That’s the equivalent to two whole weeks of showers! You could also reduce your carbon footprint by 2kg – that’s the energy needed to make 1,064 cups of tea!

So, get involved, ‘Go Big on Plants’, and feast on one of Alpro’s delicious ‘Plant-Filled Plates’ on the big day:

• Berrilicious Oat Pancakes – A plant-fuelled pancake stack; blitzing Alpro Oat Unsweetened drink with mixed berries for the berrilicious breakfast of your dreams

• Almond & Cherry Baked Oats – A plant powered ‘cherry Bakewell’ for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do. Super easy to make, even more delicious to eat, try these baked oats for a fruity kind of morning

• Veggie Bean Burrito Bowl – Topped with Alpro Plain Unsweetened No Sugars Big Pot this Mexican feast is completely plant powered

• Plant Powered ‘Winter’ Bowl – Filled with falafel and tasty veg, this bowl of goodness is perfect for lunch. Top with a helping of Alpro Plain Unsweetened Big Pot mixed with a little harissa, and sprinkle with chickpeas to serve

• Super Green Thai Curry – Go green or go home with this plant-packed Thai curry. Spinach? Check. Spring onions? Check. Peas? Check. And don’t forget the Alpro Coconut Unsweetened drink for that creamy finish

• Roasted Pumpkin Macaroni – This warming dish is the ultimate plant-based comfort food, made with Alpro Oat Unsweetened drink which contains no sugars and no sweeteners at all!

Or, keep it super simple and give one of these ‘Plant Hacks’ a try:

• Whizz Alpro Oat Unsweetened into a smoothie blended with kiwi and apples

• Pick up a soya, coconut or almond latte on your way to work

• Try the plant-based special on the menu at your local restaurant

• Add Alpro Almond Unsweetened drink to your morning porridge. Supersize your serve with chopped nuts, blueberries and sliced banana

• Keep it simple and add an extra side of veg to your usual evening meal
