Plant based foods

  • Understanding the term plant-based diet

    Plant-based diets are dietary patterns comprised mostly or entirely of foods derived from plant sources such as fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, legumes, nuts and seeds. Therefore, animal products may not be completely excluded, however there will be a greater emphasis on foods from plants. A key difference between vegan and plant-based diets is that veganism includes avoiding animal products of all kinds, including clothing, whilst plant-based usually just refers to diet.
