What is Plant-Forward?
Like we talked about earlier, here at Clean Cuisine, we consider ourselves to eat a plant-forward diet. So what does plant-forward mean to us? Well, to begin, it definitely does not mean we are vegan. No, we actually believe there can be many benefits to meat when sourced, and prepared properly. Click here to learn what the best meat is!
Plant-forward to us means that we eat mostly plants, and incorporate them as the main component in most of our meals.
When it comes to clean food, it’s also important to remember plant foods are lowest on the food chain and therefore contain considerably fewer toxins than animal foods. Unrefined plant foods are also the only source of anti-inflammatory, anti-aging phytonutrients, which play a key role in the health benefits obtained from eating Clean Cuisine.
Phytonutrients are substances that protect the plant and fortify it against illness, but they also offer invaluable disease protection and anti-inflammatory benefits to YOU, the plant-eater. Phytonutrients act in a myriad of health-promoting ways. Many phytonutrients are sources of natural anti-aging antioxidants and others act as powerful inflammation extinguishers. Some phytonutrients enhance immune function and promote healing. Others stimulate enzymes that detoxify cancer-causing carcinogens.
In a nutshell, the more phytonutrients you can manage to get into your diet, the better! And the only way possible to get more phytonutrients is to eat more plants and less animal foods. There’s just no way around it. Thus, Clean Cuisine places a heavy emphasis on plant-based nutrition.
We know that life can get busy, and cooking can be time consuming. This Burger Bowl Recipe takes only 20 minutes from start to finish, and is easy to double, or even triple to enjoy as leftovers throughout the week.
