The plant-based food lifestyle has made its way front and center in the food and meal industry these days. So what does "plant-based" mean exactly and why is it becoming so popular now?
Plant-based consists of foods primarily from plants, including veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, legumes, oils, beans and whole grains. Although one may choose a plant-based diet, that in and of itself does not and will not define or categorize you as "Vegan" or "Vegetarian." There's even the term "Flexitarian" which comes to mind as well. They enjoy all the foods of a plant-based lifestyle most of the time but will occasionally enjoy meat, dairy and eggs.<
