Cooking

Healthy plant-based meals are built from four staple foods, whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits. When you prepare these foods with minimal use of salt, oil, and sugar, you can eat your meals ‘ad libitum’, that is, eat as much till your satisfied. The staple foods are all low in calorie density which makes it hard to overeat on these staples. Your stomach will be full with less calories than from standard omnivorous meal.

The easiest way to eat healthy plant-based meals is to prepare them yourself.
