ASK OUR DIETITIANS
Have questions about a plant-based diet?
Filling your plate with a variety of fruits, vegetables and other plant-based foods like whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds can help promote health and prevent serious medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Plant-based eating serves as the basis for several different lifestyle approaches including Mediterranean, vegetarian, vegan and paleo. Although each lifestyle approach is varied and may be appropriate for different individuals, there is a common theme between each - plates are filled with mostly plant-based foods.
For any healthy lifestyle approach, our dietitian team recommends filling at least half of your plate with fruits and vegetables. They also encourage that all forms matter - meaning that fruits and vegetables, whether they are fresh, frozen, canned, dried or 100% juice, are all important and count toward your daily intake.
