When Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” it is unlikely that he would include the modern day diet, rich in animal products and processed foods and high in salt, sugar and saturated fat.

Many modern diseases are proven to be lifestyle-based. Diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure and obesity related complications are all manageable by changing our diets and lifestyle.

Plant-focused diets are high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and naturally low in sodium, cholesterol, saturated fats and calories.

While plant-based eating is on the rise, many people are still resistant to the idea of completely cutting out animal products. The alternative is to eat a plant-focused diet, meaning the majority of your nutrition comes from plant sources but you can still occasionally include unprocessed fish, eggs and dairy without a huge adverse effect.
