We’ve all heard the hype that plant-based diets are the way to go. But what is so good about a plant-based diet?
Many of the arguments in favour of plant-based diets focus on the environment, and for good reason. Plant-based diets reduce the pressure we’re putting on our natural resources through breeding, raising and feeding animals for food. Plant-based diets require less land, fossil fuels and water to sustain, which relieves a little bit of that growing pressure on our environment.
From a nutritional perspective, plant-based diets are quickly becoming the way to go, if you do it right. You can, technically, live off a plant-based diet comprised of white rice, bread, juice, cookies and other sweetened vegan treats, but just because its vegan doesn’t mean it’s healthy.
Eating a healthy plant-based diet, on the other hand, relies heavily on fresh fruit and veggies, legumes, seeds and beans. They’re jam packed full of vitamins, minerals and fibres, which are essential ingredients to living your best, healthiest, plant-based life.
Well-done plant-based diets are also low in cholesterol and saturated fats, which can help reduce the risk of mortality from conditions like stroke, obesity, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
