The Flexitarian special edition of Easy Food is on sale now in all newsagents across Ireland. Here’s why you don’t want to miss out…
We at Easy Food are all about making conscious choices when it comes to eating: the best food tastes good and makes us feel even better. Just last month, US News and World Reports listed the flexitarian diet as the third best overall diet/eating regimen in the world for its easy-to-follow guidelines and emphasis on healthy eating choices that are sustainable in the long run. This is why we’ve just released this special issue!
Well, it’s more or less in the name. The flexitarian diet can be broadly summed up as a part-time or flexible vegetarian diet; it advocates eating less processed meats and refined sugars, and more plant-based proteins, whole grains and fresh produce.
If you feel like having a burger or meaty meal? Go ahead! By consciously reducing your intake of mass-produced, chemical-laden meats, you can opt for nutrient-dense, ethically sourced meat and fish options, thereby reaping most of the benefits of a vegetarian diet without being too strict on yourself. By eating more plants and less meat, it’s suggested that adherents to the diet will not only lose weight but can improve their overall health, lowering the rate of heart disease, diabetes and cancer, and are likely to live longer as a result.
Keep an eye on newstands nationwide to pick up a copy of this special edition from Easy Food for recipes, tips and expert advice on how to improve your health and wellness through the flexitarian diet. On shelves €7.95.
