The Positives of Plants!
November 11, 2021
We all know how good plants can be for us, but we also know that sometimes it can be hard to incorporate nature’s goodness into our diets. Lucky for you, we’ve got the top tips for how to get that plant-based power up in your diet, in the most quick, easy, and delicious ways!
Whilst the vegan lifestyle isn’t for everyone, there is no reason why you and your family can’t join in on the plant-based fun! Nowadays, loads of everyday people are making plant-positive swaps, and it’s not only for the health benefits. Eating plant-based is more sustainable and eco-friendly than other diets, as it doesn’t use as much fossil fuel energy, whilst also requiring less land, and less water for goodness to grow! Meaning that you can nourish your body, and the planet, all in one!
There are heaps of easy-swaps you can make today, that will improve your diet. While you won’t taste much difference, your body sure will thank you for it! Some great and easy swap-outs may be:
Using a plant-based milk instead of regular cow’s milk. These alternatives are super tasty and add a yummy twist to your morning coffee, or even in your baking!
Veggie burgers instead of beef burgers. Using fresh vegetables and legumes, like carrots, onions, zucchini, and lentils, all combined, make for a delicious meat alternative that will have your stomach satisfied.
Swapping out mayo for hummus. No one ever said plant-based had to be flavourless! Slap some hummus on your next sandwich and prepare for a whole new delicious taste and texture!
