What is a plant-based diet? For some, it may mean going all in and following a vegan diet, with no animal products. For others it may just trying to replace a couple of meat/poultry base meals per week with more plant based meals, such as beans and rice. Regardless of how you approach plan-based eating, swapping out some meals with more plant foods including nuts, seeds, legumes (dried beans and peas such as kidney beans, chick peas, lentils…) veggies, fruits and whole grains may help you get on track with a healthier style of eating. My favorite is the Mediterranean style of eating as its flexible, non0restrictive and easy to follow. In addition to plenty of plant foods, it also includes fish, shellfish and small amounts of dairy and meats.
