The health benefits of a plant-based diet and vegan recipes from Cuisinicity to add to your flexitarian, vegetarian or vegan diet.
First things first: You don’t have to call yourself a vegan or even follow a vegan diet to enjoy vegan recipes as part of your weekly food intake. In fact, more and more of us are embracing a flexitarian style of eating, i.e., increasing vegetarian and vegan meals and reducing meat and other animal products in our diets. While everyone has different reasons for making this shift, including budget-friendly dining choices, the experts are banking on your finding the health benefits of this more plant-based diet irresistible!
In fact, findings on the benefits of vegetarian, vegan and more plant-based diets are growing, pointing to links with improved heart health, reduced cancer risk, diabetes prevention and more! Even well-known food-lovers are rallying behind plant-based diets (even part-time) and the incredible benefits including more fruits, vegetables and legumes in your diet can offer.
We invite you to start enjoying the benefits of more plants in your diet this week!
