Elizabeth Pattalis is a vegan nutritionist who helps with plant-based diets that are balanced, delicious and ethical – covering all your nutritional requirements.
Did you know that some of the oldest living civilizations, often called Blue Zones, live longer, happier and better lives consuming a mostly whole foods plant-based diet (1)? Did you know red meat consumption is associated with an increased risk of chronic diseases (2)?
A well-balanced plant-based diet consisting of whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruit, vegetables and healthy oils can promote long-lasting health and vitality. It is protecting against many lifestyle-related conditions, can even reverse illness, amongst other ethical benefits to animal right and the environment. Replacing animal protein of various origins with plant protein have been associated with lower mortality (3).
