You’ve probably heard it a million times – eat your fruits and veggies! A plant-based lifestyle is taking it one step further and letting nutrient-rich fruits, veggies, legumes and grains take center stage in dishes and snacks. It’s easier than ever to get your daily dose of good-for-you vitamins, minerals and fiber with this approach.
So…what exactly does it mean? The plant-based diet starts with a focus on plants and encourages us to build meals made of wholesome and colorful ingredients. When following a plant-based lifestyle, you will likely need to seek alternative sources for protein and dairy, as there’s a limitation of animal products, such as meat, eggs and milk.
From coconut to soy, there are lots of options that make for great milk substitutes. Find your favorites from brands like Silk and So Delicious Dairy-Free.
Tofu, beans and Vega protein powders offer solutions to the common question, “How will I get my protein?”
