The benefits of cutting down on meat consumption are prevalent, not only for human health but also for the environment. An increasing number of people opt to follow a vegetarian, vegan, or flexitarian diet, with studies showing that the number of Americans opting for a plant-based way of eating has skyrocketed to 43 million people.
A whole-food, plant-centric diet can be rich in the nutrients your body needs. Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytochemicals and powerful antioxidants, which can help ward off diseases and reduce the risk of some cancers, help prevent type-2 diabetes and lessen the pain associated with inflammatory conditions.
The key pitfall to following a vegan or vegetarian diet is that, without proper guidance and knowledge, it can involve the unhealthy spiral into consuming lots of processed, chemical-laden, convenience foods.
