Top 10 Benefits of a Plant-Based nutritional plan.
There is power in consuming a whole, plant-based, gluten-free diet. Even a small change, like adding some clean, quality super foods to your daily schedule, can help you achieve real benefits.
Make such changes and you can:
The Enso Food Circle
The Enso Vegan Lifestyle Bar Staple Foods.
The Enso food circle show a suggested ratio of each food group in your daily diet. This is not meant to suggest a hierarchy of nutritional value (that foods higher on the pyramid are worth less than those on the bottom). Combined in balance, these foods will provide premium nutrition, with each group instrumental to your whole nutrition picture.
Carbohydrates from Fiber Fibrous Vegetables
At 45% of the Enso circle you will find fiber-rich carbohydrates emphasizing leafy greens and colorful vegetables that are the foundation of clean, plant-based nutrition. Foods in this section provides a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
Dark Leafy Greens.
Dark leafy greens are loaded with fiber and it’s your best choice when it comes to supporting longevity. Rich in necessary vitamins and minerals like vitamin K, iron, electrolytes, and chlorophyll, dark leafy greens also serve as a catalyst to support cleansing in your body.
Sea Vegetable. Highly nutrient-dense are one of the highest sources of calcium. Due to high calcium content and other essential minerals, sea vegetables are also quite alkaline-forming. High electrolyte content, great for keeping cells properly hydrated and facilitating proper muscle and nerve impulses function. Sea vegetables often have respectable protein content, too.
Carbohydrates from Fruits. Fruits are a great source of carbohydrate energy. Fruits are quickly digested, providing immediate energy, but without the crash associated with refined sugars. Also rich in vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and sometimes fiber, fruits are a delicious source of plant-based fuel.
Carbohydrates from Starch.
Here at the smallest part the Enso circle, you will find whole, unmodified grains and starchy vegetables that are only required in small amounts.
Starchy Vegetables are a perfect side to a balanced plant-based meal, starchy vegetables are excellent for carb-loading prior to training or an event you have been training for. Due to fiber content some starchy vegetables (yams, pumpkin, and squash) are slower to digest than others, preventing a spike and crash in energy.
Gluten-free grains are much easier to digest –and efficient digestion is a great support for healthy longevity and efficient energy. If you’re not sensitive to gluten, sprouted whole grains breads are also a good alternative to conventional bread.
Legumes are high in protein, fiber, carbs, vitamins and minerals. Legumes have a prized nutritional profile when it comes to a plant-based diet. Prepare by soaking prior to cooking to ease the digestive process, and increase absorption of essential nutrients.
Rich in Omega fatty acids essential for your body to function optimally, seeds are a good source of protein and minerals. Plenty of Omega-3 and healthy Omega-6s in the diet is essential for hormone balance, limiting inflammation, supporting brain function, and healthy body composition.
Pseudo-grains (foods that resemble grains from the perspective of a person eating them, but are not biologically members of the same group). Pseudo-grains are actually seeds commonly confused with grains.
These seeds are gluten-free and less starchy, which improves digestibility. Pseudo grains are generally excellent sources of protein, though not every pseudo grain has a complete amino acid profile.
Fats / Oils
Whole food-derived oils that are minimally-processed provide essential healthy fats like Omega-3 and Omega-6. However, all oils are not created equal; look for cold-pressed oils that have not been chemically altered.
Delivering a balance of quality protein and healthy fats, nuts are better digested after soaking.
