Eating a plant-based diet has been a hot food trend over the years and it continues to be popular in 2018. People are increasingly choosing to add more plant proteins such as beans, nuts, seeds and soy foods into their diet.
The popularity of incorporating plant-based foods into our diets has become more mainstream with companies producing foods such as tofu, veggie burgers and different kinds of plant-based milk. Restaurants are also serving more plant-based foods as well.
Why has eating more plant-based foods become so popular over the years? There are many reasons. Eating less meat is actually beneficial to the environment as less meat production leads to decreasing greenhouse emissions which helps fight global warming.
Another reason people should consider increasing their intake of plant-based food in their diet is that research has shown that there is a link between eating a plant-based diet and lowering your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.
If you are considering replacing meat with plant-based foods in your diet, do you wonder if they can provide enough protein or the same quality of protein found in meat products? The answer, for the most part, is yes but you have to combine the right foods together. However, if you eat a vegan diet you will have to consider adding specific foods that will provide you with the adequate high-quality protein your body needs. Everyone’s protein needs are different.
