A plant based diet is centered on whole, unrefined, or minimally refined plants. It’s a diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. It excludes or minimizes meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products, and eggs, as well as highly refined foods like bleached flour, refined sugar, and oil. Studies have shown that plant based diets are extremely beneficial in treating tons of medical conditions. For example, coronary arterial disease is a debilitating disease that is traditionally treated with stents and coronary bypass. But, what about plant based diet for treatment?
In a landmark randomized clinical trial, a strict plant based diet was used as therapy for treatment of coronary artery disease. This study showed dramatic improvement in disease within months of initiating a plant based diet. Check out this study here and try this plant based recipe below.
