On this episode of Making FIT Work, I chat with my colleague Ami Patrick about all things plant-based nutrition. Ami is the Owner of Embody Health & Wellness out of Lewiston NY and has been a certified coach in the industry for over 10 years.
Ami is my personal go-to when it comes to plant-based nutrition, so I wanted to have her on to not only talk about the benefits but also to address some of the myths that come along with plant-based eating, along with some easy ways to add more veggies and less meat to your diet.
We started this episode by unpacking how over the last several years being plant-based has become a bit trendy which is both a good and bad thing. On one hand, it’s great that people are becoming more aware of its benefits but on the other hand, like all things “diet culture” it ends up coming with an ALL or NOTHING attitude. You’re either a vegan or vegetarian or you’re a carnivore! Ami and I both agree that this is not the way to approach any type of nutrition plan.
Some of the things we address specifically on this episode are….
Reasons for choosing a more plant-based lifestyle.
Overall health benefits of a whole foods/plant-focused nutrition plan.
How to incorporate more plant-based nutrition into your overall diet without completely giving up meat.
Plant-based foods that are high in protein
Some of Ami’s favorite plant-based supplements, along with a discount code!
