Being on a plant-based diet means you are cutting a lot of your food options out of your diet. Usually this means cutting out any types of meat or animal products from what you eat. It also typically means trying to stay away from the pre-packaged foods lining almost every shelf in grocery stores that are packed full of carbs, bad fats, and other ingredients that aren’t very healthy to eat.
The very notion of ‘plant based’ may sound intimidating to many people, but it is important to know that a plant based diet is not a deprivation diet. If anything, it is a nutrient dense way of eating where you can eat when you are hungry and eat until you are full.
