Have you ever wondered what are the benefits of living a plant based lifestyle?
Are you aware of what a plant based diet is? A plant-based diet is a diet that focuses on the consumption of foods from plant origin rather than from animals. Studies show that more and more people are adapting to a plant based and sustainable lifestyle now more than ever.
Most people have been taught that dairy is a good source of calcium for your teeth and bones, back in the days. In recent years, there have been many studies that demonstrate the negative effects of meat and dairy on the physical body.
When talking about eating a plant based diet, many people say “but where will you get your protein?” The truth is that fruits, veggies, legumes, and grains are packed with protein- some more than others!
We are not medical professionals, we just speak from experience to bring awareness and support to our readers. The first step to creating a plant based lifestyle is to do your own research, and check in with your body’s needs. Once you make a decision for yourself, don’t shock your body all at once, slowly minimize the amount of meats you consume,
Mindset is also an important factor, make sure you know why you want to know plant based, and come back to that every time you start to doubt your choice. Reason with your choices and choose what is in alignment with your best self. Focus on what the benefits are and the positive aspects rather than what you may be “missing out on”. It can be difficult to change your lifestyle, but if your passionate enough you will make it happen. Many friends and family may judge you but you can share with them new recipes and dishes- expand their mind. Teach your neighbors new things. You can also make new friends!
