Plant-based Eating

Plant-based eating patterns can lower your risk of diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.  They’re also a great way to increase the amount of vegetables, fruits and plant-based proteins in your diet.  Eating plant-based foods doesn’t mean that you can’t eat meat and dairy products. It’s about making subtle changes in your eating habits to improve your overall health. Examples include proteins such as legumes (beans, peas and lentils), nuts, seeds, tofu, fortified soy beverage, and non-starchy vegetables and fruits. Learn more about plant-based eating.
