What is plant forward?
A plant-forward diet is a dietary approach that emphasizes the consumption of mostly plant-based foods, while still including smaller amounts of animal products if desired. Unlike a plant-based diet which may exclude animal products entirely, a plant-forward diet focuses on increasing the proportion of whole, minimally processed plant foods in one's diet while reducing the intake of animal-based foods.
The concept of a plant-forward diet is based on the idea that increasing the intake of plant-based foods has various health benefits, such as reducing the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Plant-based foods are typically rich in nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants, and are also lower in saturated fat and cholesterol compared to animal-based foods.
In a plant-forward diet, plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains are emphasized as the foundation of meals, while animal-based foods like meat, dairy, and eggs are consumed in smaller quantities or used as flavorings or condiments rather than the main focus of meals.
Overall, a plant-forward diet is a flexible and balanced approach that encourages the consumption of more plant-based foods while still allowing for the inclusion of animal products if desired.
