USDA Dietary Guidelines 2015: The Sustainable Power Plate

A Recommendation for 2015 Dietary Guidelines for America: The Sustainable Plate

In an effort to promote sustainable eating patterns for optimal health, the Physicians Committee offers a visual guide for plant-based eating patterns. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes is a scientifically proven approach to help prevent and manage our nation’s largest public health threats: obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain forms of cancer. Additionally, we urge that water replace dairy as the drink of choice.

A diet higher in plant-based foods, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds, and lower in calories and animal-based foods promotes personal health and is associated with less environmental impact than the current U.S. dietary patterns, according to the most recent Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.

These healthy basics provide the good nutrition you need. Be sure to include a reliable source of vitamin B12, such as any common multiple vitamin or fortified foods.
