A Guide to a Plant-Based Diet

Ever walk into go-to supermarket or a dinner at your friend’s house only to be treated to words like ‘plant-based’ or be confused by plant-based alternatives to everyday foods like milk, cheese or meat? If you said yes, then this short article is guaranteed to put you up to speed with all things plant-based!

 

What's it all about?

 

While a part of the world makes a shift to this new diet, let's find out what it's all about! A plant-based diet is a diet where no animal products are consumed. This includes animal meats and extends to eggs, milk, and honey. Instead, plant produce like fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes meet all the nutritional requirements.

 

The benefits?

 

A plant-based diet has been shown to make you less prone to certain health problems! It can often keep your heart chugging healthier, free from heart disease to type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure! Maybe it's because of the empathetic nature of the diet, but it's mostly because it's just that healthy! But that's not all; a plant-based diet has been proven to reduce the risk of certain cancers.

 

How to start off?

 

Here are a few cues to help you transition to a plant-based diet:-

  1. Start eating more and more plant produce and experimenting with the same.
  2. Start using meat as a side dish instead of a main course.
  3. Develop a habit of cooking an entirely plant-based meal at least once every week.
  4. Start adding fruits to your meals as a dessert
  5. Include whole grains as a breakfast meal option by incorporating oatmeal, quinoa, barley and other grains.

 

Should I transition?

Well, there’s no one answer to that question- it all depends on your thoughts and tastes. Are you a dedicated meat connoisseur who can’t live without having their steak? Or are you just worried about not being able to consume honey or eggs? There is no correct answer to whether you, the reader, must switch over to a plant-based diet. Do what works for you and makes you happy and satiated!
