My Favourite Plant Based Food Sites

Disclaimer! I do eat fish and I occasionally eat meat too. I am not a vegan but I do advocate a diet high in plant foods for your insides AND your outsides.

Recent studies have proven the benefits of plentiful fibre in your diet for good health and longetivity. It's essential for bowel health, digestion, immunity and appetite regulation. Try to get a rainbow of colours in too.

While I hate all the "detox" and "clean eating" business - I believe that we need to consider our own taste predilections, favourite flavours and also our health and nutritional needs for age, any health conditions, and level of activity.

That said, listen to your body. You don't need to eat a purely vegan, purely plant-based diet to get all the benefits and nutrients of a veggie rich life! Here's some inspiration for snacks, side dishes, main meals and more.
