Are you wondering what to eat on a plant-based diet? You are not alone.
Let’s keep it simple and place what to eat and what not to eat into two categories.
Don’t eat thing that come from animals like meat, dairy and eggs.
Do eat things that are grown, focusing on whole foods.
I know, you’re thinking, Holly, it’s not that simple.
