Why I Advocate For A Plant-Based Diet

I hate how certain diets have certain connotations around them. I dislike how everything is “right’ and “wrong” nowadays.

“My diet is right, and yours is wrong.”

Different things work for different people.

Plant-Based Diet

A plant based diet is one that consists mostly or entirely of foods derived from plants, including vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruits, and with few or no animal products.

A plant-based diet isn’t a set diet. It is not a vegan diet.

A plant-based diet is one where you are eating natural and whole foods.

You are cutting out all the fake, artificial processed junk.

I don’t know how anyone can argue against this diet.

Eating natural foods full of nutrients is obviously the healthiest option.

A plant-based diet has no set rules. You can customize it how you want.

The goal is to just eat as much natural and whole foods as possible.

More Benefits of A Plant-Based Diet

Not only is it the healthiest diets, it is one of the cheapest.

It is also the best for the planet.

What Does This Diet Consist Of?

A plant-based diet consists of whole, natural foods such as:

  • Legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas, etc.)
  • Oats
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • ^Whole Grains
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Starchy Vegetables (potatoes, sweet potatoes)
  • Spices/Seasonings
  • Plant based protein (tofu, tempeh)
  • Healthy Fats (avocado, olive oil, etc)

Why You Should Follow This Diet

This is the healthiest, cheapest and most beneficial diet out there. There is no debating that.

It is a very versatile diet that can meet any lifestyle.

You can still eat meat with this diet if you choose to. Just make sure the animal products aren’t highly processed.

To acquire this diet all you need to do is cut out processed junk and start eating more natural food.
