What is a plant based diet?
A plant based diet is a health conscious lifestyle based on plants. Food from the earth such as fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. Eating a plant based diet means you don't consume any animal products. No milk, yogurt, cheese or eggs, and no chicken, fish, cow or any other animal.
