WHOLE FOOD PLANT BASED DIET RECIPES

TIP: If following WFPB diet for weight-loss, these foods should be enjoyed in moderation: nuts, seeds, tofu, tempeh, whole-grain flour and breads, and plant-based milks. Because these foods are more calorie-dense they can contribute to weight gain, so moderation is key.

Vegan vs. Plant Based vs. Whole Food Plant Based

Vegan means that you avoid everything derived from animals, just like plant based. But you also avoid leather and watch your beauty products for the label “cruelty free.” Eating vegan can include processed snacks like Oreos.   Peanut Butter Stir Fry Vegetables RecipePauseUnmuteLoaded: 41.67%Remaining Time -0:43

Plant based means you focus mostly on eating plants, but you may not be so focused on the vegan aspect outside of diet. Plant based also includes processed foods like plant based burgers.

The whole food plant based diet is a fully vegan or plant based diet with a focus on whole foods. This means you leave all processed foods out of your diet. Processed foods are vegan junk foods like fries, cookies, vegan burgers, oils, sugar, and so on.

So what should you choose?

If your goal is to get health issues under control, the whole food plant based diet is a great option. Whole plant foods can reduce inflammation in your body, they are good for the heart, and you are less likely to over eat.

A whole food plant based diet is lower in calories for the same volume of food compared to a standard western diet. This is extremely beneficial for weight loss.

Today’s vegan plant based recipes contain all whole foods, meaning there are no processed foods added. And because I want to make your life not only healthy but also easy, all recipes can be prepped in 30 minutes or less.
