Plant based vs. omnivore - which side are you?
Both plant based diets and omnivore diets can be healthy or unhealthy, depending on your approach. Making sure your nutrition routine incorporates mostly whole, nutritious foods, plenty of colorful veggies and the right amount of protein & carbs for your activity level is crucial for both sides.

🙏🏼. Tips on both styles of diet below.
For a Healthy Plant Based/Vegan Diet:
1. Common mineral diffident are protein, calcium, omega-3s & B12 - make sure you’re supplementing with B12 and getting the rest of this minerals in plant form
2. Make sure to incorporate some complete proteins into your diet (i.e. quinoa, buckwheat, rice & beans together, ezekiel bread, hummus & whole-wheat pita, tempeh)
3. Limit your soy intake and opt for tempeh (less processed, fermented version of tofu) when you can!
4. Eat the rainbow - having a variety of different plants, legumes, fruits, etc will ensure you’re getting a variety of vitamins & minerals in.
For a Healthy Omnivore:
1. Make meat a side dish rather than a main dish.
2. Choose organic grass-fed beef or bison, pastured cage-free poultry & eggs & wild fish when you can!
3. Try and source quality meat from local farmers (farmers markets) or from online vendors with quality practices.
4. Avoid processed meats with nitrites/nitrosamines and high amounts of table salt. There are nitrite-free versions of bacon and sausage available.
