What is Plant-Based?

Plant-Based is a way of eating foods primarily or exclusively of plant origin. The whole term of the “whole food, plant-based diet” indicates the foods are as they exist in nature and have not been stripped of their original packaging.

CAUTION: Beware of junk food. Although some of it’s entirely made from plants, eating a diet founded in non-nutritive foods such as white bread, potato chips, and fruit punch isn’t healthy and isn’t the goal here.

A whole food, plant-based eating style boast a wide range of choices, including infinite possible combinations of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices.

Benefits of a Plant-Based Eating Style:

  • Disease Prevention and Reversal
  • Lowering overall and ischemic heart-disease mortality
  • Supporting sustainable weight management
  • Reducing medication needs
  • Lowering the risk for most chronic diseases
  • Decreasing the incidence and severity of high-risk conditions, including obesity, hyperextension, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia
  • Reversing advanced coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes
