Why do you need to go for a plant-based healthy diet?

Updated: Sep 1

Time is changing and so are our food choices. A plant-based diet benefits that are sourced mainly from the plant family benefits, not just the human body but also the planet.


In this blog, we will look into what are the benefits of switching to a plant-based or vegan-friendly alternative diet, and the added nutritional value that comes along with such a diet inspiration.


The definition of a plant-based diet


Plant-based diets often called 'vegan diets' are composed mostly, if not entirely of plant foods. It includes items like fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, oils, legumes and cuts on foods like eggs, dairy and meats. Further, it depends from person to person how much would they personally like to cut off on eggs and meat.


A plant-based diet can be perceived as a broader concept with other specific diets like the Mediterranean diet or the Whole30 falling under it. Though the Mediterranean diet includes meat or the Whole30 is heavier than animal proteins, there is wider scepticism as to whether they come under the plant-based umbrella.


Research and plant-based diets


Many studies have suggested that plant-based diets have reduced the chances of cardiac arrest. A review published in the journal Frontiers of Public Health suggested that such diets have improved fertility issues, reduced the risk of [type 2] diabetes and have also reduced the chances of chronic illnesses including cancer.

Vegan foods rich in B12, Vit D, and high protein have also made a positive impact on the emotional and physical well-being of a person.


What can be included in your plant-based diet?


Nuts and seeds

Sweet potatoes, squash and beans

Fruits like apples, grapes, oranges, berries, peaches

Legumes such as chickpeas, beans and lentils


What should you avoid (ideally)?


Meats including beef, pork and other red meat

Chicken, duck and other poultry

Fish or shellfish such as crabs, clams and mussels

Dairy products like milk, cream, ice cream
