Plant-based diets – focusing primarily on veggies, fruits and healthy fats – have a long list of health benefits.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, a plant-based diet helps lower your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, digestive diseases, colon and breast cancers, as well as obesity.
Eating a plant-based diet (even for a day!) will help you feel lighter, leaner, less tired and more energized. You might even notice that have less “brain fog” and your digestion is improved!
This week we’re going to experiment with eating a plant-based diet for ONE day.
You’ve probably heard of Meatless Mondays, right? We’ll be doing almost the same thing, except we’re also going to avoid dairy…. and you don’t have to do this on a Monday! You pick the day that works best for you and your schedule!
If you’re having trouble coming up with a meal plan for your plant-based day, here’s a sample:
🍓Make a smoothie for breakfast, adding in plant-based protein powder
🥗Eat a salad for lunch, topped with a sprinkling of your favorite tree nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds) and some delicious homemade dressing (see photo above for ideas!)
🍏Have an apple and some green tea for a mid-afternoon snack
🥢Enjoy a veggie and bean stir-fry for dinner!
