There is a lot of talk at present about a “Plant-Based Diet”. That is a diet totally reliant on plant foods – you consume nothing that had a mother. As opposed to a vegetarian diet where you might consume eggs, butter, or cheese a plant-based diet recommends no animal products at all.
Plant-based is a little different to a vegan diet in that plant-based eaters also aim to cut out processed foods as much as possible where a person following a vegan diet can still eat biscuits, lollies, chips, etc. One of the most famous proponents of a plant-based diet, Dr Michael Gregor, talks about the unhealthy vegan – just because you don’t eat animal products doesn’t equate to being healthy if you still eat processed food.
I would love to tell you that I am 100% committed to the plant-based model – which I am- the mind is committed but the body weak – so I am currently a work in progress!!
Veet is a fabulous Vegan chef and a fully committed plant-based eater. Her recipes are delicious and her cooking school legendary. I’ve shared a great post that she recently wrote on three weeks of packed lunch ideas. The Vietnamese style baguette was gooooood!
