The benefits of plant-based meat. Plus, how to incorporate it into your diet.Plant-based meat has come a long way since the days of frozen, tasteless burger patties. In recent years, new companies have sprung up and made modern forms of plant-based meat. And the good news is that these upgraded plant-based meat companies have made a product that is healthier than conventional meat, still has a lot of flavor, and is better for our planet. And while you can still enjoy standard meat alternatives like tofu, plant-based meat is a new and improved option to add to your healthy lifestyle. Here are four benefits of plant-based meat.
Better for the environment
Tastes very similar to regular meat
Reduces animal suffering
One of the most obvious and important benefits to choosing plant-based meat is the reduction of animal suffering. Most animals are bred, treated, and killed in inhumane and unethical ways in factory farms in the food industry. You can feel good on both the inside and outside, knowing that no living being suffered for your food.
How to incorporate plant-based meat into your diet and lifestyle
Because plant-based meat is made up of legumes, vegetables and added healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, it’s an easy food item to add to your diet. Crumble it onto salads or make any traditional style like burgers. Additionally, when intermittent or circadian fasting, it’s crucial to choose healthy foods when you break your fast and during your eating window. Because plant-based meat is now made with whole ingredients like nuts, legumes and vegetables, it’s a great option to eat while not fasting or breaking your fast.
