Vegan Variation 5: Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet
This variation of eating vegan is probably the easiest of all. Once you adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet, there are very few questions about what to eat. Basically, you eat real fruits and real vegetables. It's a diet filled with real food… what a great concept.
With a whole-food, plant-based diet, there's no confusion when reading food labels, and no doubt about whether or not to eat processed food. Your food is one ingredient in its natural form. Mixing it with other real foods or cooking it with other real foods is just fine. Simple to identify, cook, and eat.
Those who eat a whole food, plant based diet often give up salt, oil and sugar (SOS) too due to their negative consequences on health.
This series points out some of the variations of vegan eating. There is no reason to choose one of these variations. Eating is a personal choice. You can invent your own variation on the vegan theme. The important thing is to give it a little thought and decide what is best for your health and what will please your taste. Choose a style of eating that is best for you.
