Plant Based Diet Dos and Don'ts What To Eat for your Plant based diet Why Are Meat and Dairy Detrimental to the Body? Vitamins And Minerals Plant Based Foods Plant based foods high in carbohydrates Plant Based Foods that Offer Fat Plant Based foods high in protien What is a plant based diet? Why is it a environmentally responsible choice? Why is it a superior health choice? Areas of Discussion A Plant Based diet is a diet consisting of no animal products or byproducts. This translates to no meat, dairy, or processed foods containing traces of each. That's right, no eggs, milk, poultry, fish, red meat. What could be better than eating and feeling perfectly satisfied, with no negative side affects? With a plant based whole foods diet everything you eat offers exactly the right nutrients for your body to digest and make use of. Legumes- Black beans, Soy Beans, Chick Peas, Adzuki Beans, Anasazi Beans, Black Eyed Peas, Fava Beans, Lentils, Lima Beans, Red Kidney Beans and Soy Nuts carrots, corn, potato, sweet potato, parsnip, yam, peas
All the beans listed in proteins Nuts
Vegetable oils
Canola oil
Olive oil
High oleic safflower oil
Sunflower oil
Coconut oil Dairy products are not healthy, regardless of whether they are organic or conventional. Even organically produced dairy contain naturally occurring steroids and hormones, which can promote cancer growth. The typical meat-based Western diet may increase the risk of heart disease, compared with diets high in fruits and vegetables. One study shows that a Western diet increases a woman's risk of getting heart disease by 46%. Typically, any protein that comes from animals, including meat, dairy, eggs, and fish, is a complete protein. This might seem like a great case against the vegan diet, but the problem is that animal protein is highly acidic and causes illnesses within your body.There are also many good plant-based sources of complete vegan proteins, including soybeans, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, hempseed, salvia, and spirulina. Some plant proteins have smaller amounts of one or two of the essential amino acids, and that's why they aren't promoted as often as the animal proteins. Nuts- walnuts, almonds, peanuts, and pumpkin seeds Vegetables- Cauliflower, spinach, broccoli and asparagus, sprouts Necessary nutrients for a plant based diet:
Carbohydrates: these provide a source of energy.
Proteins: these provide a source of materials for growth and repair.
Fats: these provide a source of energy and contain fat soluble vitamins.
Vitamins: these are required in very small quantities to keep you healthy.
Mineral Salts: these are required for healthy teeth, bones, muscles etc..
Fibre: this is required to help your intestines function correctly; it is not digested. The energy it takes to get meat to your plate is immense.
It starts on a farm of some type then moves to slaughter. Then it is frozen and shipped to stores which requires quite a bit of energy and fuel. Once you purchase it from the super market it requires cooking which expends even more energy still. http://www.health-alternatives.com/vegetables-nutrition-chart.html http://www.health-alternatives.com/fruit-nutrition-chart.html#Avocado Bibliography "Chan Luu Sale | 2013 Chan Luu Bracelets Sale Blog Frystudio.com! | Chan Luu Bracelets | Chan Luu Wrap Bracelets | Http://www.frystudio.com/ |."
