The positive healing power of plants can be life-changing. Studies have shown that a plant-strong diet can improve health and reduce incidences of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity and chronic illnesses.

Planted Platter promotes eating more plant-based meals and snacks as a pathway to better health. This mission is grounded in evidence-based research about the benefits of eating plant-based food. (See our list of plant-based Medical Experts.)

Planted Platter’s founder, Deb Czech, encourages and enables people to lead a healthier lifestyle through customizable and fun plant-based recipe demonstrations, services and classes. Long-term data and reports reveal that simply telling consumers to “eat healthy” hasn’t changed the prevalence of serious and often reversible illnesses and chronic conditions. Inviting people to watch the easy recipe preparation and taste the plant-based dishes gives them the confidence to move ahead.

Whether we are consulting to the hospitality industry, presenting food and nutrition programs and classes, implementing employee educational workshops, or providing individual/family cooking and lifestyle coaching, Planted Platter promotes plant-based eating options—for everyone, everywhere. Our goal is to increase consumer education and improve access to plant-based food through restaurants, caterers, entertainment venues, tourism destinations, food retailers, employers, and institutions.  

Planted Platter’s focus is further supported by personal experience and other individuals’ stories about improving health once they stopped eating a “Standard American Diet” including animal-based products and processed foods high in sugar, fat, and salt.
