More and more people are beginning to add plant-based foods to their weekly meals. The growing trend in eating a more plant-based diet has a range of health benefits, and it doesn’t mean you have to eat salads all the time! Proper Pizza’s vegan pizzas offer flavourful yet nutritious options for you to help get more vegetables into your diet
People who eat more vegetables reduce the risk of some chronic diseases, as they are consuming vital nutrients for a healthy functioning body. We know it can be daunting to give up your go-to pizza, especially if you aren’t a big vegie lover. However, the benefits of getting a few more vegetables into your system can do wonders for your overall health. Below are a few key health benefits which come from plant-based diets.
For a start vegetables typically have fewer calories than meat, and they are entirely free from cholesterol. So, eating more vegetables can help you reduce your overall calorie intake, which is useful for both weight loss and maintenance. Consuming fewer calories also helps slow your metabolic rate, which is linked to slowing your aging process and fighting diseases like cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
Also, a diet rich in vegetables is crucial in reducing the likelihood of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes. Higher consumption of various vegetables can protect against certain cancers too. Vegetables increase your fibre and potassium intake, which are vital in defending against cancers. For example, a higher dietary fibre intake may reduce breast cancer risk.
When it comes to vegetables, it’s all about variety and volume—you want to eat as many different types as you can! Simply eating a few more vegies isn’t going to provide you with all the nutrients you need to gain the health benefits. However, by beginning to add more vegies into your diet any way you can is a great start.
Proper Pizza can help your vege eating! Their black truffle pizza and garden love pizza offer the opportunity to explore your vege pallet while helping you to begin consuming more vegies in your diet! Soon enough, you’ll be putting vegies on more of your food choices and gaining all the health benefits along the way!
