Going plant-based is one of the best things you can do for your health and wellness but you probably already knew that, right? You may already know that eating a plant based diet is healthy but, I bet you don’t know there are some instant benefits many people experience within the first week of eating a plant-based diet? They just might leave you intrigued enough to give it a try. Last week I mentioned the following benefits: Better digestion, More energy, and Better Sleep. Here are (3) more benefits:
1. Pretty Skin
Your skin will look incredible after a week on a plant-based diet. A healthy plant-based diet is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, water, chlorophyll, and vitamin E, which all do amazing things for your skin. Some of the best foods for prettier skin are: apples, oranges, berries, greens, broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, avocados, lemons, beets, squash, and tomatoes.
2. Happier Outlook
Eating in a way that promotes life naturally makes you happier. You’ll have a lighter outlook on life and just generally feel happier all the way around. This is a change many people don’t expect, yet one I hear the most about from everyone who takes on the challenge.
3. Less Inflammation
Have join pain? Eat more plants! Plant-based foods lower inflammation. Especially those rich in omega-3 fats like chia and flax, along with leafy greens that contain chlorophyll which relieves inflammation. Eating a plant-based diet increases alkalinity in the body to calm inflammation.
