The Benefits of Plant-based Nutrition

Plant-based nutrition is the movement encouraging folks to incorporate more fresh produce, whole grains, legumes and nuts into their diet. From meatless Mondays to vegan breakfasts, people are beginning to recognize the benefits of plant-based nutrition.

Good for You

A diet that incorporates more plant-based foods is shown to be higher in dietary fiber and lower in saturated fats and calories when compared to diets higher in meat and dairy intake. Eating more plant-based foods may also help maintain healthy heart function, blood sugar levels and cholesterol.

Good for the Planet

The production of plant-based products has proven to be an environmentally sustainable enterprise. By reducing the production of animal-based products and increasing the consumption of plant-based products, communities can lower greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce waste and energy usage.
