10. Less Migraines and Allergies

Did you know certain protein compounds in animal foods increase the chances of migraines and allergies in the body? It’s true! When you reduce animal foods, your migraines and allergies will naturally lessen or disappear. I know ragweed always kicks my butt, so I’ll see how this spring goes as I incorporate more plants in my diet. While certain plants from some sources can trigger allergies too, I do think it is worth giving a plant-based diet a try to lessen the amounts of allergens you suffer from. I have noticed significantly less headaches and migraines since eating plant-based foods. On a primary meat-based diet, I got headaches all the time.

This article isn't meant to tell you that eating vegan or vegetarian is right for everyone. This article is intended to show you the benefits of simply adding more plant-based foods to your diet that don't have to do with your weight.

Vegetarian foods are often seen as a dieting protocol, and I hope these 10 benefits will prove there are more benefits than just weight loss to eating plant foods. I do believe a vegetarian diet, on the other hand, is optimal. Even though unhealthy foods like white rice, sugar, etc. are vegetarian, don’t confuse these foods with foods that are advised to be eaten here. The idea of eating a vegetarian diet isn't about restriction, however also isn't a free token to eat nutritionally lacking foods from processed vegetarian foods. A great example of a vegetarian diet is the occasional egg or fish meal from quality sources, with plenty of raw nuts, seeds, healthy fats , healthy starches from root vegetables, gluten-free grains, and tons of green vegetables, leafy greens, and low-glycemic fruits such as berries, apples, pears, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, squash, lemons and limes. If you tolerate beans, then by all means incorporate these into your meals as well. Eating plants is a delicious and freeing way to live.What are you favorite ways to incorporate plant-based foods into your diet?
