While we’ve spent a good amount of time in our previous blogs talking about various ways to go green and make your lifestyle more environmentally conscious, one of the many ways to do this is to adopt a plant-based diet. While this could mean a wide variety of things, we’ve decided to dedicate this blog to a basic overview on what plant-based diets are and how they benefit you. Read on to discover more!

What is a Plant-Based Diet?

While the world of eating a meatless diet has greatly progressed over time, the term “plant-based diet” refers to anyone whose diet consists of largely plant foods. While this term itself is large as well, plant foods include fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, legumes, potatoes and other foods that do not come from an animal. While some people eat entirely plant-based diets, others choose to focus largely on a plant-based diet with still eating things like eggs and dairy.

Are Plant-Based Diets Limiting?

One of the commonly believed myths about plant-based diets is that they put a limit on the type of foods that one can eat. While on the surface,, having a plant-based diet does mean that you are no longer able to eat meats like fish, chicken, beef and pork, cutting out meat doesn’t mean that you are limiting the amount of foods that you can have. On the contrary – by adopting a full or partial plant-based diet, it not only requires the person to think differently about food, it also exposes them to new kinds of foods that they may not have experienced prior to adopting their new diet. Cutting out meat and other animal products encourages people to discover cuisines from other parts of the world like Asia, the Middle East and other parts of the globe where vegetarian or vegan diets are common among their population. The result is not only the possibility of finding your new favorite food, but it also broadens your worldview.

How Does a Plant Based Diet Benefit Me?

The benefits of practicing a plant-based diet are countless, and that’s a topic that we will visit on its own in a future blog. The most common benefits of enjoying a plant-based diet has to do with your health. By enjoying a largely plant-based diet, your risk of disease decreases significantly. Your risk of suffering from diabetes, stroke, various types of cancer and heart disease is reduced as you focus your diet on fruits, vegetables, grains, and other types of fresh and natural food. In avoiding meats and other animal products, those who practice plant-based diets are bypassing heavily processed foods that are high in saturated fats, cholesterol and other ingredients that are far from healthy. Conversely, eating a plant-based diet increases your intake of a wide variety of vitamins and nutrients that will help protect you against sickness and disease. While this is a large topic that we could speak on at length for much longer, we will revisit this specific subject more in depth in a future blog.

Hopefully after reading this blog you will now have a more clear understanding of what a plant-based diet is and the effect that it can have on you and your life. At Green Tidings, our desire to care for and cherish our planet runs parallel with our desire to care for and cherish ourselves.
