You Know You Should Eat Your Fruits and Veggies, But Do You Know Why?
People are increasingly adding seeds, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and foods made with plant-based ingredients — such as meat and dairy alternatives — into their diets. At this rate, the size of the plant-based food market is projected to double between 2023 and 2029!
Plant-based foods offer a wide range of nutritional benefits, including protein and fiber. Consumption of plant-based foods has also been linked to risk reduction of some types of cancers, heart disease, and other chronic diseases.
And these foods aren’t just good for our bodies — they’re good for our planet too. Domestically grown crops, like U.S. soybeans, are often farmed in a sustainable fashion, meaning opting for plant-based foods can help contribute to a reduced carbon footprint.
