What do I eat?
Whole, unrefined, plant-based foods that includes unprocessed vegetables, fruits, whole grain, legumes, seeds and nuts. This way of eating avoids meats (including chicken and fish), dairy products, eggs and minimizes refined and processed foods and ingredients such as added salt, oil and sugar. This way of eating provides an abundance of energy, antioxidants, phytonutrients, fibre, vitamins, minerals and other health promoting substances.
What is the WFPB diet?
A whole-food plant-based eating pattern is based on natural foods that are not heavily processed. That means whole, unrefined or minimally processed ingredients.
Why do I follow WFPB diet?
A key benefit of WFPB that cannot be overlooked is personal empowerment. You take control of your health and protect yourself from numerous lifestyle diseases or reverse the one's that exists already. WFPB eating pattern helps to prevent, manage and reverse cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity. It promotes healthy weight loss, optimizes blood pressure and cholesterol. It may reduce the risk of certain cancers including breast, prostate and bowel cancer. On the other hand, we have a positive impact on the environment, because by limiting animal farming we reduce the carbon footprint, prevent soil erosion, save water and do not contribute to the suffering of farm animals.
