Your Guide to all things Vegan & Vegetarian at Ocean
Everyone knows that eating vegetables is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but what about other foods derived from plants such as nuts, seeds, beans and grains? Cue the plant-based diet, or plant forward eating patterns, which focuses on incorporating more (or all) plant-based, natural and whole foods into one’s diet for health and environmental benefits.
It is a diet and lifestyle that has been practiced for centuries and has only been increasing in popularity. Even media mogul Oprah Winfrey has taken the plant-based diet on by storm by initiating the 30-Day Plant Based Challenge, encouraging others to eat at least one plant-based meal per day.
