Whole Plant-Based Diet

A Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet is based on eating whole and unrefined plant foods based on fruits, vegetables including tubers, nuts, seeds, legumes and whole grains. This diet minimizes or totally eliminates meat/fish, dairy and refined foods such as bleached flour, refined sugars and refined oils - definitely avoiding preservatives, additives, food coloring and other food enhancers.

The idea of eating a whole-food plant-based diet is the foundation diet of my Holistic Nutrition studies. I have tried many diets and I discovered that within the guidelines of this diet I can still enjoy a variety of foods/food groups and still receive health benefits that support my goals for a healthy, nutritious diet. On this diet I eat both raw and cooked foods with an emphasis on dark leafy greens which I believe is key to support any diet. 

Remember, an ideal diet is one which includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, beans/legumes, nuts/sets and whole grains. There aren't many who would deny that..well, I hope not.

If you want great guidelines for using the same principles I use in my Nutrition Made Simple Program, you can find more information at the Forks Over Knives Website. I often use their website as a source of good information for both myself and my clients. Yet, if you need one-one-one guidance, please contact me for help.
