Plant Based Diet Benefits

Since most people don't eat enough fruits and vegetables, eating largely plants will boost your produce intake.

Vegetarianism lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar, lowering cardiovascular disease risk. Plant-based diets lower inflammation, which causes arterial plaque.

A Healthier Heart

Advances in Nutrition study indicated vegetarianism prevents and treats type 2 diabetes. Plant-based diets improve weight, insulin sensitivity, and cardiovascular disease risk. 

Lower Diabetes Risk

Plants—fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains—reduce cancer risk. Plant phytochemicals also prevent cancer. Red and processed meats also raise cancer risk, especially colon cancer. 

Decreased Cancer Risk

Unsaturated fats—monounsaturated and polyunsaturated—are heart-healthy. Olives, avocados, almonds, their butters, and oils are good sources. Eat more vegetables with butter, ghee, or fat. Omega-3-rich chia and flaxseeds.

Seek Out Healthy Fats

Eat vegetables for breakfast. It's not veggie-packed, but adding some helps you fulfill your daily limit. Add spinach to eggs, cauliflower to smoothies, or breakfast salads.

Eat Vegetables at Breakfast

One vegetarian day a week reduces supper meat consumption. Try making meat a condiment one night a week if going meat-free is difficult.

Weekly Vegetarian Dinner

Butter and eggs are used in cookies, cakes, and ice cream. Switching to fruit will fulfill your sweet craving and give you more plants.

Fruit snacks and desserts

This helps you eat more plants and get vitamins and minerals. Bok choy, rutabaga, squash blossoms, celeriac, and kohlrabi are exotic vegetables.
