Repost from @the.vegan.dietitian - If any of your loved ones are worried your new found veganism (or perhaps long term commitment to being #vegan) is going to negatively impact your health, show them this ☝️☝️☝️ As with any dietary persuasion VARIETY. IS. KEY.
Whether you're a staunch meat-eater or avid plant consumer we should all aim to eat the rainbow, include wholefoods and healthy plant proteins as well as reduce the amount of saturated fats, added sugar and salt we consume.
In other words, PLAN OUR DIETS WELL.
Furthermore the British Dietetic Association state:
Diets centred on a wide variety of plant foods offer affordable, tasty and nutritious options.
Plant-based diets which are rich in beans, nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables, wholegrains such as oats, rice, and cereal based foods such as breads, and pasta can provide all the nutrients needed for good health. This includes essential fats, protein, vitamins, minerals and plenty of fibre too.
Well balanced plant-based diets, that are also low in saturated fat, can help you manage your weight and may reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
So in conclusion, plant diets are not only safe but they also reduce the risk of getting some of the major diseases affecting society today.
