Is a plant-based diet good for you? Easy answer, yes!!
Is a plant-based diet good for the planet? Oh yes!!
At Karma, we know plants are awesome. Check out our top five reasons below for choosing a plant-based diet.
1. Gut and digestive health
Plants are a wonderful source of fiber and we need fiber for a good digestive system.
2. Natural energy boost
Plants contain really high amounts of vitamins and minerals; some plants contain healthy fats and proteins, while others can contain antioxidants, all of which are great fuel for your body and brain. Is it any wonder so people are switching to a plant-based diet.
3. Can aid in losing weight
Plants are more nutrient-dense than processed foods. Plants also have a lower calorie to volume ratio. Just remember to eat a balanced plant-based diet so that you are consuming good fats and proteins as well.
4. Improved skin and hair
At Karma we are firm believers of that age-old saying, "you are what you eat." And because plants are naturally full of vitamins and minerals, they are particularly good for your skin and hair.
5. Dramatically improve the health of the planet
It is widely regarded now that animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector. It is also regarded to be responsible for nearly 90% of the deforestation in the Amazon, and a significant drain on the planet's water resources. Simply put, plant-based products are renewable and use far less of our scarce resources than meat production.
