5 Benefits of Plant-Based Diets

Part of my training involved learning all about plant-based nutrition. I love using this term because it allows for any type of plant-based eater without plugging them into some type of hole. Personally, I enjoy meat, but am very aware of the benefits of eating less meat and supplying our bodies with healthy meatless meals. If you are looking for ways to bring healthier ideas, take a look at eating more meatless meals.

  1. People that adhered to a plant-based diet slashed their type-2 diabetes risk by an average of 23%. Take a look at that. Almost a 25% decrease for type 2 diabetes risk decline!!!
  2. More than 12,000 middle-aged adults were studied at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and those with a diet higher intake of plant foods and lower in animal foods had a lower risk of death from heart disease.
  3. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating more plant proteins, like legumes instead of animal protein can be a cost-effective way to improve nutrition quality. Saving money to spend on other food items.
  4. Harvard investigators found that eating a plant-based diet was associated with less weight gain. This study included almost 127,000 subjects during a 4 years interval study.
  5. An investigation published in The Journal of Nutrition reported that people that eat a plant-based diet have higher level of certain antioxidants including carotenoids and flavonoids compared to non-plant based eaters.

Plants provide our body with clean energy that can be converted to energy our body needs quickly. Many studies have been conducted over the past 10 years that continue to provide evidence to increase your intake of plant-based meals and leave out the meat.

Today we have so many more options for plant-based meals. We even have companies that provide weekly box-meal delivery every week so that you can try meals without trying to figure what you need to buy to make meals. I highly suggest trying some .
