Introduction: What Is The Plant-Based Diet, And Why Should You Try it?
This diet is for those of you who want to make the switch from a diet with meat and animal products, to one that uses whole, plant-based foods. The majority of the people reading this article have no idea what a veg diet is, or why you should make the switch. So let me break this information down for you.
There are many different kinds of diets, but they all aim to help people lose weight or become healthier. But what we have here is a diet that has the potential to be very healthy, and also very delicious.
The reason that it’s healthier than other diets is because people who follow this diet use only whole foods. Whole foods avoid the chemical additives and preservatives in processed food, which make them more nutritious and often add a lot of extra calories.
Whole foods have more nutrients and fiber than processed foods, which makes them healthier for you.
Three Best Selling Books to Get You Started
These books are the only ones that I would recommend to those of you who are interested in a plant based diet. They provide very clear information on how to prepare, cook and eat these diet. There is no nonsense approach and they provide an abundance of recipes, as well as websites and resources where you can find them. These are the books I will be referencing throughout this article. I hope that they serve you well and I hope you like them as much as I do.
The first book is by Dr. John McDougall, the founder of the St. John’s Wellness Center in Santa Rosa, California. The book is called “Taste for Life”, ISBN: 0-595-22950-4 which can be found on Amazon .com . The book has over 300 recipes and a meal plan. Here is what Dr. McDougall had to say about his book(Taste for Life):
” It took me about two years to research and another two years to write Taste for Life . I learned everything I could about health and nutrition, consulted with the country’s leading authorities in the field of nutrition, including Dr. Framer Ornish, and took courses on cooking and nutrition at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York. I wanted to create a book that would enable anyone, regardless of income or culinary skills, to cook a healthy diet.”
5 Tips to Start a Plant Based Diet at Home with Your Kids Without Breaking the Bank
Understanding a lot of the ingredients that you can use in cooking, but also discovering new ones will help you enjoy this diet. I’ve recently started using more spices too, like chilli powder, cajun spice, cheesy flavourings and nice thick tomato passata. I’ve noticed an increase in flavour and taste dramatically.
“Using your knowledge of flavours will help you make the best tasting meals, which will also encourage others to keep coming back for more. So get experimenting with your spices, herbs, sauces and marinades.” – Jeff Novick (www.JeffNovick.com)
