Well-known health care provider, Kaiser Permanente, published an article in its medical science journal recommending that physicians consider a plant-based diet for all patients. The article said, “Healthy eating may be best achieved with a plant-based diet, which we define as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages meats, dairy products, and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods … Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.”
Call to Action:
If you are not already primarily eating a plant-based diet, move towards eating more meatless dishes, add more fresh fruits and vegetables, eliminate most (if not all) refined and processed foods, and replace as many dairy products with plant-based equivalents.
To your wellness,
