That’s right, no matter what “diet” you follow, your better nutrition plan needs to be built from plants. Here’s why and how to build your better plant-based nutrition plan.
Plants are more affordable than animal products, so they make eating better on a budget deliciously doable.
• Plants provide essential nutrients called phytonutrients and they help the body get all of its work done better. For example, antioxidants in plants help the body clean up toxins that come from normal living as well as environmental exposures.
• Plants also provide essential fatty acids that help promote a healthy inflammatory response. When the body experiences chronic inflammation it is a risk factor for most major diseases, thus it is so important to get in healthy fats to help promote a healthy inflammatory response.
• Plants provide fibers. Fibers are critical to promote regularity and remove waste products. Fibers also support the efforts of good bacteria and help the body convert some nutrients into usable forms. And finally, fiber helps promote feeling satisfied and full, so they are a useful tool to enjoy eating better portions of food.
