5 Easy Ways To Eat A More Plant-Based Diet

Health is the new wealth. Leading a healthy lifestyle today has become crucial in looking after oneself. Boosting our immune systems and making sure that we are in the best of health physically, emotionally, and mentally is more important now than it was a decade ago.

Other than regular visits to the gym and taking vitamins, the diet that we follow is as important as both of these things combined. You are, after all, what you eat, and following a plant-based diet every once or twice a week can improve your overall health and boost your immune system. Here are five easy ways to eat a more plant-based diet by substituting a few key ingredients on your plate.

“Healthcare happens at your table. Your kitchen is your lab. Your pantry is your farmacy.” – Dr Terry Mason.

Five easy ways to substitute healthier meal options:

1. Substituting meat for a healthier option is not nearly as tasteless as it sounds. If anything, a plant-based meal can be just as tasty and nutritious. The Vegetarian courgette burgers with orange-carrot salad are the perfect example of a delicious and nutritious plant-based meal.

2. Why not try substituting dairy butter with a healthier option. Plant-based butter is a great substitute and a healthier alternative for preparing meals that are not only tasty but good for your heart.

3. Are you looking to swap out eggs for a more plant-based diet? The good news is that the options open to you are many. Eggs can be replaced with foods such as banana, cornstarch, soy protein, or even applesauce. Now, tell us, how deliciously healthy does that sound to you?

4. Instead of reaching for the biltong, snack on berries or nuts. Your body will not only thank you for feeling better but also for looking better.

5. While some of us may prefer full-cream milk, plant-based alternatives may be even tastier than traditional cow’s milk. Soy, Almond, Oat, Coconut and Cashew milk are good alternatives to conventional cow milk.

Following a healthy lifestyle is as easy as substituting a few key ingredients for a plant-based healthier option. Here at Flora, we care about your health as much as you do.
