As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, you are likely wondering how you can stay the healthiest you possibly can. While sitting at home generally results in being less active, it’s important to pay attention to the foods you’re putting into your body. New surveys show that more people are gravitating to plant-based sources of protein during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider eating plant-based during this time.
You can still get protein with plant-based foods.
Just because you cut meat out of your diet, doesn’t mean you can’t consume enough protein. About a quarter of U.S. citizens said they’re eating more protein from plant sources since the outbreak hit. Along with consuming protein, plant-based meats likely have more vitamins and minerals. You don’t have to cut out meat all together, either! Try substituting one of your meals with a plant-based protein source, and monitor how it makes you feel.
There’s health benefits to eating plant-based.
Plant-based meals contain naturally occurring fibers, anti-inflammatory micronutrients and antioxidants. On the other hand, meat contains lots of unhealthy fats. In addition, plant-based diets may lower your blood pressure, keep your heart healthy, and help you lose weight. It’s also important to note that all plant-based proteins are NOT created equal.
