The Plant-based Plan

What is plant-based eating?

Plant-based eating is about putting plant-based foods at the core of the diet.

There are different ways of plant-based eating, from vegan over vegetarian to flexitarian-type diets. Plant-based eating does not necessarily exclude all animal products. In a plant-based diet, plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and plant-based dairy alternatives are at the core of the diet.

The health benefits of plant-based diets are not solely due to the lack of animal-derived foods in the diet but also to the increased quantity of plant-based foods.
