Plant-based eating is growing in popularity, thanks to a long list of health benefits, which include a lower risk of heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. The Plant-Powered Diet, by Sharon Palmer, RDN, looks at the science behind plant-based diet and health, and provides dietitians with strategies to help clients maximize their health potential through a delicious, whole plant foods diet.
The Plant-Powered Diet defines what a plant-based diet really is, and discuss the diets of vegans vs. vegetarians and plant-based omnivores. In this CPE activity, Palmer also draws stark comparisons to the typical Western diet, with its high levels of meats, saturated fats, sodium, low amounts of plant foods, and links to increased risk of chronic disease. The CPE activity also explores the rising consumer interest in plant-based eating and highlights the increasingly popular Mediterranean Diet as a prime example. Food preferences, culinary techniques and plant-based meal planning are also discussed, as are nutrients of concern like calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, zinc, and iodine.
