What is plant-based?
Plant-based, or whole food, plant-based (WFPB), is based on nutrient rich foods from plant sources, minimally processed, without added oils or chemical additives. It includes vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, some nuts and seeds.
Evidence supports it leads to: healthier weight, lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar, prevention or reversal of heart disease, reduced risk of diabetes and cancer, reduced symptoms of arthritis and autoimmune diseases, good for the environment and animal welfare.
