Vegan Nutritionist 🌿
It is advisable to consult a vegan nutritionist to ensure your body receives all the nutrition that it needs, and also to overcome any fears of danger you may have with your personal health and new choice of vegan diet and lifestyle.
It can be pretty difficult to find a health specialist in South Africa that has experience of, and can offer professional advice on, vegan nutrition.
What is Plant-Based 🌿
Plant–based or plant-forward eating patterns focus on foods primarily from plants. This includes not only fruits and vegetables, but also nuts, seeds, oils, whole grains, legumes, and beans. It doesn’t mean that you are vegetarian or vegan and never eat meat or dairy.
Going Plant-Based 🌿
Eating plant-based does not mean you can’t eat meat. It means your meals are mostly plants: vegetables, whole grains, and fruits. Beans, seeds, and nuts are also included.
Fill two-thirds of your plate with these plant-based foods. The remaining one-third should be a lean protein like chicken or fish or a plant protein like tofu or beans.
Why plant-based? 🌿
It supports your immune system. Plants have essential nutrients that you cannot get from other foods. The vitamins and minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants in plants help keep your cells healthy and your body in balance so that your immune system can function at its best.
“Plants give your body what it needs to help fight off infection,” says Andrea Murray, MD Anderson health education specialist. “A plant-based diet strengthens your immune system to protect you against germs and microorganisms.”
A healthy immune system is essential for reducing your risk for cancer because it can recognize and attack mutations in cells before they can progress to disease.
Plant foods reduce inflammation. 🌿
Plants’ essential nutrients work to resolve inflammation in your body. The same tiny phytochemicals and antioxidants that boost your immune system also go around your body neutralizing toxins from pollution, processed food, bacteria, viruses, and more.
“Antioxidants in plants grab all these so-called free radicals that can throw your body off balance,” says Murray. “To reduce inflammation, it’s important to eat plant-based and to listen to your body’s signals for how foods work for you.”
Prolonged inflammation can damage your body’s cells and tissue and has been linked to cancer and other inflammatory diseases like arthritis. A plant-based diet may protect you because it removes some of the triggers of these diseases.
