We’re calling it now: Plant-based eating is going to be big. For starters, there are the health benefits (it can lower blood pressure, cholesterol and help you lose weight, according to this study by Kaiser Permanente). Oh, and the financial benefits (all that meat and dairy is expensive). And did we mention it’s environmentally friendly to boot? Yeah, it’s pretty great.
Whether you’ve recently started embracing vegetable-centric meals or are already a pro, the whole-food, plant-based diet might be for you. Not entirely sure what that entails? Allow us to explain.
