Diet Culture Can Be Left in 2019
With the rise of plant-based eating, restrictive diet plans may soon become a distant memory. YAY.
2020, the start of a new decade and the end of fad diets such as Keto, Juicing and Paleo. Plant-based eating isn’t seen as a temporary fix like that terrible trio, it is a lifestyle - an ethos that not only saves the planet (yay) but improves overall health too.
Cassidy Gundersen, a nutritionist and health coach, says that shifting the mindset from one of restriction to one of abundance, can open up a whole new world in terms of loving our food and having a healthy relationship with it. Long gone are the days of counting calories and demonising food groups. It’s time to put our health first - both physically and mentally.
To put it simply, plant based eating isn’t a diet, it is a lifestyle choice. One that can significantly improve our day to-day health. We’re not saying be restrictive, or cut-out animal products all-together, just introduce more greens, grains, nuts and vegetables to your every-day diet, and reap the rewards.
This goes hand-in-hand with the current Climate crisis. Ditch unhealthy, restrictive diets and eat what’s good for yourself and for the health of our beautiful planet.
