Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
— Hippocrates


We are a group of plant-based healthcare professionals passionate about promoting the benefits of plant-based living in Ireland. Our goal is to ensure that our community remains healthy and vibrant by sharing knowledge, advice and expertise on plant-based nutrition. We came together in 2017 and were closely involved in organising the first ever plant-based nutrition conference held in the UK in early 2018.

As more research is made available, we are seeing an increasing body of evidence supporting the health benefits of this natural way of eating. We advocate a plant-based diet to reduce the risk of conditions known as lifestyle diseases, conditions that can be avoided or minimised just by eating the right types of food. It’s our belief if our community can adopt these simple changes, we will all benefit from being healthier and stronger with a better quality of life.

Our members are from the following professions:

  • GPs

  • Hospital Consultants

  • Dietitians

We are open to all walks of life and and all professions to join our cause to spread the good word on the benefit of eating healthily. If you would like to know more about our team, please contact us.
