Plant-based vs. Vegetarianism

What is plant-based? What the heck is the difference between vegetarian and plant-based? Well, that's debatable. We all know a vegan is someone who doesn't eat any animal products, at all. I am NOT going down the rabbit hole of PETA and such. You have vegetarians, this is where things get cloudy. There, in layman terms those that eat dairy/eggs, fish, no red meat, no pork. Basically, it's all made up and based on marketing. Plant-based business is worth $3.3 billion! 1% of the US population identifies as being vegan, another 4% use identifies as being plant-based or vegetarian. Plant-based is supposedly the cleanest form of vegetarianism. One author defines vegetarians as those that eat processed snacks and such whereas plant-based eat only whole grains. The bottom line is this, plant-based or vegetarianism is a lot healthier for some. It comes down to what do your products have in them? If you need a degree in nuclear science to understand the label, step away! Eat healthy, eat full flavors and good fats in moderation. The more color on your plate, the more appealing to your eye but most of all your tastebuds! hashtagflavors hashtagvegetarian hashtageat hashtaghealthiere hashtagplantbased Maybe, paleo and keep are the reason we ow.have a new term - plant-based!
