Why Eat More Plants?

Have you heard the good news about all the great health benefits from eating more plants? The American Gut Project (a citizen science project) indicates that eating over 30 different plant based foods per week is key to promoting a diverse gut microflora. 

A healthy gut microbiome is beneficial for…

1. Immune health. Including autoimmune diseases like type 1 diabetes, Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and more.

2. Improved digestion and a reduced risk for bacterial diseases.

3. Healthy aging. Since the good bacteria in the gut are less diverse at as we get older, eating more plant based foods may also help promote longevity.

4. Chronic diseases. Incorporating lots of plants can help protect against heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity, as plant-based foods are typically low in calories, fat, and contain unsaturated fat and fiber to help lower cholesterol and maintain blood sugar.

In addition, plant based foods provide essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals which may also help balance our gut microbiome and prevent cancer.
