Plant-based foods are high in fiber, nutritional value and are very low in fat. The nutritional profile they encompass helps to enhance your mental, physical and organ health. These nutrients also aid in strengthening your immune system and help your body fight off various health conditions.
The best diet for preventing or fighting any of the serious diseases or conditions, is one which includes a high quantity of plant-based foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans and legumes. To truly benefit from these food sources, we need to eat them in their natural unprocessed form instead of the refined renditions that are found in most of the processed or packaged foods these days.
You can easily add many of the plant-based foods to your diets daily. Nutritionists advocate that we should aim to include at least 3-5 servings of fruit, 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of whole grains each day. As for non-plant foods, such as dairy and animal meat, dieticians suggest that they should form only 1/3 part of our diet. So bear in mind that you don’t need to become a complete vegetarian to avail the benefits that plant based foods have to offer.
