It’s true that plant based lifestyles reduce the risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, certain risks of cancer (specifically colon, breast, and prostate cancers), depression, and in older adults, decreased risk of frailty, along with better mental and physical function.
Plant-based or plant-forward eating patterns focus on foods primarily from plants. This includes not only fruits and vegetables, but also nuts, seeds, oils, whole grains, legumes, and beans. It doesn’t mean that you are vegetarian or vegan and never eat meat or dairy. Rather, you are proportionately choosing more of your foods from plant sources.
Join us today as Crystal Robb is on the show to talk about plant based nutrition! I think in order to make healthful changes into our lives, getting to the bottom of why this change benefits us leads to a habit that really becomes consistent. And we’re not talking being a vegetarian, we’re talking about adding more vegetables and fruits to our diet. It’s known that food is highly inflammatory, and why make the fires in our bodies worse? Join us as we talk about how to get started, and get inspiration for plant-based eating throughout the day!
