Definition: Plant-forward Diet (or Plant-centric Diet)

Plant-forward Diet

Plant-forward is a style of cooking and eating that emphasizes plant-based foods but is not strictly limited to them. Meat may be included but it’s usually not the main feature of the meal. A plant-forward diet is one that is plant-forward, also sometimes referred to as plant-centric.

 

You don’t need the world to stop eating meat completely to help the environment and improve all around health, apparently.

For North Americans, this means eating 84 per cent less red meat and six times more legumes (e.g. beans and lentils)
