Plant-Based Diets

Plant-based diets are comprised of meals made predominately from a variety of vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, and nuts, with minimal amounts of processed foods. Many professional organizations recommend a plant-based diet to help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and obesity. This is because such a diet is usually high in fiber and low in fat.

Many times, modest amounts of meat are included in a plant-based diet, so it is not synonymous with a vegetarian diet. However, the bulk of the diet consists of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
