When it comes to diets, I hold two foundational beliefs.
A book for everyone
That is where The Plant-Powered Diet comes to the rescue. Sharon Palmer has written a book for everyone who wishes to tap into the power of plants, no matter what core diet she chooses. The Plant-Powered Diet is for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike. The book is well researched, well organized and makes no judgements.
Yes, plants are incredibly good for us and we should be eating a variety of them. We know that. However, transitioning to a more plant-based diet is challenging. Some of us love our meat. Some of us feel paralyzed by all the conflicting information out there. And some of us want to ensure we get all the nutrients and are not sure how to replace animal products with appropriate plant products.
The plant-powered food guide
The Plant-Powered Diet speaks to all each of us and answers our questions. Including plants in your diet is not an all or nothing proposition. Sharon Palmer outlines food categories for us throughout the book. In chapter twelve, she gives us a new Plant-Powered Food Guide we can follow based on science rather than competing interests and lobby groups. With this guide, you can incorporate more plants into your diet as she outlines how the guide works for every style of eating: omnivore, vegetarian and vegan. Included are serving sizes and number of servings per day.
