A Plant-Strong Pop Quiz from The College Greens!
Eating plant-strong is awesome. But it’s not just important to know what you’re doing, it’s also important to know why you’re doing it. Even though we all trust Rip and the many other doctors and scientists in the field, you shouldn’t just eat this way “because they said so.” Knowing the information and science behind your lifestyle helps give reason to your choices and keeps you motivated. When you know why plants are the powerhouses that fuel optimal health, you’ll never second-guess your decision to eat plant-strong.
So today, we’ve made up a little pop quiz for you to test your knowledge. Yes, the answers are available at the bottom of the page, but don’t cheat!! Take out a pencil and paper, and see what you can come up with. Then check your answers and see how you score! Take this as an opportunity to learn and grow as a conscious consumer of the plant-strong diet 🙂 Good luck!!
