A plant-based diet, full of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, is a powerful way to achieve good health.
These foods are low in saturated fat, free of cholesterol, and packed with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fiber. People who eat a plant-based diet lower their risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and many other health conditions. For more information and everything you need to get started on a plant-based diet, download our Vegetarian Starter Kit.
