Plant-based Prepared Meal Delivery Service

A whole food, plant-based lifestyle (with no added oils) can not only prevent, but reverse a number of diseases in humans. Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions including cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and erectile dysfunction. By eating nutrient-dense whole foods, scientific evidence proves that most of us can thrive throughout our
entire lives!
Avoiding consumption of all animal-based products (including fish) can decrease our average carbon footprint in America by 55%. On all fronts, a plant-based diet contributes the least amount of environmental harm to the planet relative to any other.
Eating plant-based means that you are more likely to be sensitized to the inhumane, dark and brutal slaughtering of 20,000 animals per minute in the U.S. alone.
Giving up meat, dairy and processed foods does not mean giving up flavor, but it does mean giving up a number of chronic illnesses! There are infinite recipes and creative ways to eat the foods that maximize our health. In many cases, people who have transitioned from the Standard American Diet to a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle were initially unaware of just how tasty nutritious foods can be, and how good they can feel all day, every day.
Eliminating all animal products and processed foods and oils results in a much bigger nutritional bang for your buck. And, the money saved by not having to go to the doctor, and not purchasing medications … can be HUGE. Yes, you can be both frugal and optimally healthy.
Shifts in thinking and perception often take time. While you may learn the latest peer-reviewed nutritional and environmental science and make an immediate change from animal/fish consumption to a plant-based lifestyle, others will take longer. So, whether you are already fully on-board, or are just veg-curious, always remember to speak to others with kindness and understanding. We must all support each other on our path to a healthful, compassionate and environmentally sensitive way of living on this planet.

Healthy World Sedona Mentoring Program

Healthy World Sedona’s (HWS) mentoring program provides transition support to people who choose to make a change to a whole foods plant-based lifestyle. When you sign up for mentoring with HWS, you receive six, free, weekly 30-minute sessions with a mentor. Our mentors are volunteer members of the community who have had the personal experience of transitioning to a whole food plant-based lifestyle and can help you with the practicalities of making this change work for you. Mentoring can be “in person”, or by phone, or a combination of the two.

We want you to use your mentoring sessions to address the issues most important to you.


For example:

  • What foods to buy, and where to find them
  • How and what to cook
  • How to eat healthy, even if you don’t want to cook
  • Tricky social or family situations
  • Restaurant dining
  • Cooking for kids
  • Setting up your pantry and kitchen
  • Dealing with food cravings
  • Other issues …
