WHAT IS A WHOLE-FOOD, PLANT-BASED DIET? Whole food describes natural foods that are not heavily processed. That means whole, unrefined, or minimally refined ingredients. Plant-based means food that comes from plants and doesn’t include animal ingredients such as meat, fish, milk, and eggs. A whole-food, plant-based diet lets you meet your nutritional needs by focusing on natural, minimally processed plant foods. WHAT IT ISN’T: VEGGIES ONLY While leafy vegetables are an important part of a wholefood, plant-based diet, they don’t contain enough calories to sustain you. Consider that you would need to eat almost 16 pounds of cooked kale to get 2,000 calories! Not eating enough calories leads to decreased energy levels, feelings of deprivation, cravings, and even binges. HOW A WHOLE-FOOD, PLANT-BASED DIET CAN BOOST YOUR HEALTH There’s excellent scientific evidence that many chronic…

FRUITS: any type of fruit including apples, bananas, citrus fruits, grapes, strawberries. VEGETABLES: plenty of veggies including collards, corn, kale, lettuce, peas, peppers, spinach.

5 keys to success

1 PUT STARCHES AND FRUITS AT THE CENTER OF YOUR PLATE. Enjoy nonstarchy and leafy veggies in generous amounts, but look to carbohydrate-rich whole grains, beans, fruits, and starchy vegetables to provide enough calories to power you through your day. 2 YOU’LL LIKELY EAT MORE FOOD, NOT LESS. Whole or minimally processed plant foods are dense in nutrients, not calories. As you adjust to this way of eating, you may find you feel a little hungry shortly after a meal, but over time you’ll get a sense of how much to eat to stay satiated. 3 FOCUS ON PLEASURE. The best whole plant foods are the ones you enjoy enough to stay on a healthy path. So have veggie chili, whole grain pasta, tacos, mashed potatoes, or whatever else hits the spot. 4 SAY NO TO…
