I may be an omnivore, but I still believe most of us are best off when we eat primarily plant-based foods, with small amounts of animal sources of protein if appropriate. It’s kinder to our bodies and to the planet—not to mention the other animals that live here! If you’ve been with me awhile, then you know I like to practice what I preach.
The folks at Everyday Health recently sent me this infogram on vegetarianism. Note that even following a “semi-vegetarian” diet reduce your risk of serious health conditions. Flexitarianism, anyone? If that sounds like your bag, you might dig Mark Bittman’s VB6 approach too!
What are your thoughts on plant-based diets? Any favorite meatless recipes?
