Plant-Based

Plantbased or plant-forward eating patterns focus on foods primarily derived from plants. This includes not only fruits and vegetables, but also whole grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, beans, and oils. Cultivating this lifestyle doesn’t mean that you must become a vegetarian or vegan by removing meat and dairy but rather it’s a mindful choice to move towards a diet consisting of 70-80% plant foods.

The rationale for moving towards plant-based nutrition includes better mental function, physical health, and spiritual balance. A plant-based lifestyle also promotes overall health and lessens the chance of experiencing chronic pain, disease, and constant inflammation.

Why you should consider choosing a Plant Based Diet?

1. Get more colour in your diet!

Let’s be honest, in North America and many other areas of the world, we eat a LOT of carbs and meat. Living busy lives, it’s easy to slip into a life of convenience, and become less motivated to prepare home cooked meals. We quickly forget that the earth has provided a plethora of colourful and edible healing plants as a part of nature’s natural design to prevent us from getting sick. When we eat a Plant Based Diet, we cultivate a higher quality of life, as they say “You are what you eat”! Learning to replace foods of animal sources with plant-based sources a few times a week will help you change the way you look and feel, energetically and physically.

2. Increase Longevity.

When you implement more plants in your diet, not only are you adding more high dense nutrients, fibre, good fats, and protein to your daily regime. You also extent your life expectancy and reap the benefits of the following:

 

  • Break weight-loss plateaus
  • Improve athletic performance
  • Up your energy
  • Boost Immunity + digestive health
  • Transform hair, skin and nail cell regeneration
  • Decrease bloating, fatigue, mood swings
  • Lessen the chance of acquiring cancer
  • Decreasing diabetes by 20%
  • Perform better in bed
  • Diseases prevention by 76%

3. Bio-hack your body to a younger, healthier you.

We are made of three trillion cells. Every cell has its own shelf life and is dependent on the nutrients you give it in order to serve your body at its best. If you can believe it you will achieve it. How you eat, think and lead your life dictates the well-being of each of those cells right down to restructuring the makeup of your DNA. Through clean, simple and delicious wholefoods, your skin, digestion, respiratory health and the other systems of your body will reap the benefits and positive change once you alter the food you eat.

How to cultivate a plant-based lifestyle?

  1. Start by filling 70% of your plate with fruit or veggies and whole grains.
  2. Fill the rest of the plate with a source of lean protein. (eggs, fish, chicken)
  3. Or even better, a plant-based protein. (tofu, tempeh, beans)
  4. Reduce red meat to 18oz / week (including beef, pork, lamb)
  5. Avoid processed meat such as bacon, deli meats, hot dogs, sausage 
  6. Decrease alcohol consumption.

Healing. Health. Happiness.
