A plant-based whole foods lifestyle is one of health and happiness.
The most wonderful thing about plant-based whole food is that you are cutting out all the bad substances that animal products bring to your body, and replacing them with plant foods which:
- are low in saturated fats
- are low in oxidants
- are high in antioxidants
- are high in dietary fiber
- have no cholesterol
Plants Are Good For Your Kid!
People who live the longest eat a plant-based diet! The ‘blue zones’ on earth, that is, the places where people have been found to live the longest, mostly eat a plant-based diet!
And if a long life isn’t good enough for you, take recourse in the fact that the plant-based whole foods diet is endorsed as the ideal lifestyle by many child specialists. They recommend this diet for optimum health and nutrition for your child, to avoid common childhood ailments (like ear infections, colds, cough, allergies), and to ensure that health is sustained into adulthood by preventing chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
The Whole Story
However, eating a plant-based diet is only one half of the story. It is also important to eat whole, that is, unprocessed or minimally processed foods.
Refined carbohydrates, fast-food products and packaged snacks full of sugar and salt are the reason for increasing rates of diseases in the world.
