If you’re looking for a healthy way to eat every day that’s simple, suits the whole family, and tastes great too, then look no further than plant-based eating.
Widely acknowledged as the key to a healthy lifestyle, plant-based eating is simply about shifting the focus of your meals. It’s not about giving up food groups, going without or going vegan or veggie – it’s just about adding more plants to your plate.
And the good news is that all sorts of fresh, nutritious and tasty foods literally do grow on trees (and in the ground too). Fruits and vegetables, wholegrains, beans and pulses, as well as seeds and nuts (including walnuts), soya and edamame are at the heart of this way of eating. There’s also a growing number of great-tasting alternatives to everyday staples, which can add a plant-based twist to every dish you make – from tofu to nut milk.
What’s more, plant-based eating isn’t just good for you – it’s better for the planet too. Choosing to eat foods that come from plants is more sustainable and less damaging to the world we live in.
