More people in Singapore and other developed countries are moving towards plant-based diets. These diets consist of food from plants, such as whole grains, nuts, seeds, beans, vegetables and fruits. Scientific evidence suggests that plant-based diets benefit human health, environmental protection and the welfare of non-human animals.
Plant-based foods are readily available at restaurants, food stalls and markets. Plus, many recipes are available at libraries and online to teach us how to make our own plant-based dishes.
