Vegan food pyramid offers perspective on plant-based diet

Vegan diet food pyramid.

Here’s some food for thought: more and more women – people, for that matter – are incorporating or transitioning to a plant-based diet to improve overall health.

A well balanced, plant-based diet can be flavorful and delicious, while at the same time less harsh on the digestive system. Those skeptical of the plant-based diet, known as being vegetarian or vegan, are typically concerned about getting a sufficient amount of protein to function.

According to this graphic, known as the vegan food pyramid, it is quite possible to get all of the nutrients necessary to survive and thrive by eating a plant-based diet.

Health is not the only reason some women, like me, have chosen to follow a plant-based diet. The poor treatment of animals on the meat market provide some with moral and ethical reasons to avoid all dairy, egg and meat products.
