What is a Plant Based Diet?

A whole-food, plant-based diet centers on whole, unrefined, or extremely minimally-refined plants. If you're following the diet 100% of the time, you may even be completely avoiding meats, fish, dairy and refined foods and oils.

Embracing a plant-based diet has emerged as one of the healthiest decisions you can make for your overall wellness. And it may even save your life.
