Never confuse a 'plant-based diet' with a vegetarian or vegan diet. A plant-based diet is away from the limitations of 'plant-only'; it includes minimal amounts of meat consumption but indeed has a major focus on green veggies and other natural options. This diet type was introduced by nutritional biochemist T. Collin Campbell during 1980.

Nutrition experts have been pointing towards the fibre-rich entity of leafy vegetables, seasonal fruits, and moderate consumption of nut and seed-enriched bowls. Whole grains like wheat, rice, barley, and corn are at the top of the list. The rules are not that strict because lightly processed foods do not deplete essential nutrients.

The most back-breaking health hurdles of weight and cholesterol can be easily reduced with such a vegetative diet. These foods are rich in fibre, protein, carbohydrate, and unsaturated fat and are adequate to empower the immune system to confront bouts of ailments like diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, and even cancer. They are also good for protecting bone health and lessening inflammation.

They keep you flexible, light, and energised to perform daily tasks with an improved state of health.

Plant-based diets are also good for the environment and sustainability. They weave a link between vegetarian concerns and non-vegetarian causes while taking care of your physical and mental fitness.

You can also try lip-smacking recipes that can make anyone drool, like those street-side saucy-spicy junk-food stalls. Moderate consumption of meat, and dairy-based products and a particular inclination towards a green diet with the required processing allow ample freedom to cook to your taste.
