An eating pattern, that being what is consistently eaten over time, will contribute to your health outcomes and overall well-being. Evidence shows that following a pattern that is predominately Plant-Based is most beneficial. Which consists of choosing a variety of fruits and vegetables, more plant proteins (such as beans, legumes, nuts, & seeds), and lessening the consumption of processed foods.

Though, because of our differences in culture or preference, other eating patterns may work better for you. Ultimately, you want to choose a pattern that sets you and your family up for success, to thrive and live life to the fullest.
