Why You Should Eat More Whole Grains and Fiber - Adding whole grains and fiber to the diet has many benefits. Whole grains and fiber come from a rich plant based diet and provide a high resource of protein, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that can improve overall health and wellness. Finding a Better Source of Protein - Among the best plant based resources for protein are legumes (lentils, chickpeas and black beans), spirulina (a nutrient rich blue algae available in most nutrition or health food stores), spinach, broccoli, hemp seeds, kale, nuts and nut butters. The Benefits of Cooking from Scratch - While we may not always have the time, home cooking or cooking from scratch is a much better choice than doing the microwaveable, “take and bake” fast food meals. Food made from scratch simply tastes better, is more filling and better for you. By cooking from scratch, you control what goes into your food.
