Plant-based eating for your health

Published Apr 26, 2013 by Personal Trainer Network

Do you want to feel leaner and lighter? Have the digestive system in top form? Have more energy? If your answer is yes...consider adopting a plant-based diet!
Plants offer a wide variety of foods packed with fiber, minerals and antioxidants.
Tips:
- Try non-dairy milk in smoothies, on breakfast cereal or to cook with. Eat a veggie burger instead of a beef burger.
- Eliminate animal foods you don't consume very often, hence, you won't miss.
- Have a meatless Monday. For breakfast, make oatmeal, whole-grain toast and almond butter, or fruit. Lunch can consist of stir fry rice or a salad with beans.
- Make grains and vegetables the center of your dinner plate rather than a piece of meat. Try a stir-fry with brown rice or quinoa, for example.
- Switch to plant-based snacks: fruit and nuts, soy instead of milk latte or smoothie, whole-grain crackers and hummus.
- Spread hummus, tahini, avocado or nut butter on bread or toast instead of butter or cream cheese.
