One meatless day each week improves overall health
UNITED STATES (WICS) —
A more balanced diet can help improve your overall health.
Research shows plant-based diets are linked with a lower risk of obesity, hypertension, heart disease, type-2 diabetes, and cancer.
According to a registered dietitian, going meatless just one day a week can make a difference.
Eating more plant foods like beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and vegetables can increase your intake of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
Choosing a day at the beginning of the week could be the best day to try a plant-based diet since experts say that's when people often start their best behaviors.
