Déda Café Bar leads the way by introducing a Plant-Based Menu first approach in support of its environmental and community values.

The Café Bar Manager Venessa Larmond, who came up with the idea, says: “We have always sourced our products locally to help cut down our carbon footprint, but this idea takes us to another level. We think we are one of the first café bars in the region that has plant-based food at the centre of its menu, with options to add meat or dairy as secondary.”

Eating a plant-based diet is becoming increasingly popular for a variety of reasons. From health benefits to environmental sustainability, there are plenty of reasons why you should give our plant-based dishes a try. In this blog post, we'll dive into the benefits of a plant-based diet and explain why it's never been easier to make the switch!

For starters: Why It’s Good for You and the Planet

Eating plant-based foods can also help promote a healthier lifestyle, as many of them are high in essential vitamins and minerals. Plus, locally sourced plant-based dishes are not only beneficial for our bodies, but they are also great for the planet! By choosing locally sourced ingredients and locally-made products, we can reduce emissions and help save our planet. So, why not make Earth-saving a part of your dinner menu? Make your next meal as environmentally friendly as possible with locally sourced plant-based ingredients - it's a win-win situation!

Main course: Taste, Health, and Environmental Impact of a plant-based diet

Eating plant-based meals can provide a variety of health benefits, including more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants than a meat-based diet. But you don't have to sacrifice your taste buds for the planet! Going green can be a delicious experience that nourishes your body and soul. Why not try locally sourced ingredients for a planet-saving menu? Choose locally grown fruits and vegetables, incorporate locally sourced grains, and use locally produced oils. With these fresh, flavourful ingredients, you can create a meal that's good for you and the planet!

Our Head of Finance decided to go plant based over a year ago. She told us: “I was taken by surprise when I noticed an unexpected side effect of going plant based… no, it had nothing to do with the extra fibre, but it simply made me feel happier!”

Dessert: to summarise our plant-based meal

Eating a plant-based diet is not only healthy for your body and the environment, but it can also be delicious and enjoyable. With so many options, recipes, and resources available, making the switch has never been easier. So why not try it? Give plant-based eating a chance - you might just find that you love it! We can’t wait to see you at Déda café bar!
