Part-time Veg­gie

The People's Friend - - Health -

Vege­tar­i­an­ism is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly popular as sci­ence re­veals more about the health­giv­ing ben­e­fits of a plant-based diet. But di­eti­cians warn against the craze for “flex­i­tar­i­ans” who cut down on meat but fill up on pro­cessed food, white bread and pasta in­stead.

Re­search shows the health­i­est diet con­tains whole­grains and plenty of pro­tein from beans, nuts and pulses, as well as eggs and fish. So boost your plant in­take by mak­ing one or two days a week meat-free, but al­ways en­sure you con­sume a wide va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent veg­eta­bles to keep your health­giv­ing nu­tri­ent in­take high.
