Research Revealed

Are you choosing vegetarian foods and recipes from time to time? Maybe you’re increasing the proportion of vegetarian dishes in your diet because you’ve heard that it’s beneficial to eat a plant-based diet. 

Well, research scientists reporting in the Journal of the American Heart Association, outlined that; “Plant-based diets are dietary patterns that emphasize higher intakes of plant foods and are low in animal foods. Vegetarian diets, a type of plant-based diet, with a focus on restriction of different types of animal foods (meat, poultry, or fish), have been associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular risk factors, such as obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and ischemic heart disease.”. 

Sounds good to us.  Over to you ?
