A plant-based diet is a dietary approach that emphasizes whole, unprocessed plant foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, while minimizing or eliminating animal products like meat, dairy, and eggs. Plant-based diets have been associated with a range of health benefits, including reduced risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. While plant-based diets can provide a wide range of nutrients and health benefits, it's important to work closely with a qualified healthcare professional to ensure that individual nutrient needs are being met. Some individuals may need to take supplements or incorporate certain fortified foods into their diet to ensure that they are meeting nutrient needs.
