Dr Joanna McMillan: Why a plant-rich diet is better for you and the planet | Exclusive


As we all become more environmentally conscious, its natural to start thinking about how changes to your diet could help the planet.

There’s lots of benefits to eating more whole plant foods – it can assist with gut health, immune system functions, and assist with weight loss. And it can help the environment.  

However, it can be easy to assume that moving towards veggies, fruits and wholegrains and completely tossing aside animal products is the way to go.

But, when it comes to ensuring you’re still providing your body with the vitamins and other nutrients it needs to keep ticking, balance is key.

If not balanced currently, you can lead yourself into nutrient deficiencies and have trouble achieving the amounts of protein and other nutrients needed by your body to function. 

My advice is to think plant-rich when it comes to your diet – not eliminating animal products all together, which assists with many aspects of health including brain, heart, and bone strength.  

Not all plant-based foods are healthier

First of all, it’s important to understand that not all plant-based foods are healthier. Many are ultra-processed. Lollies and chips for example are plant-based but clearly not nutritious!

Let’s think about your plate as a blank canvas, you want to build it out with fresh, whole foods – not pre-packaged foods from the super-market. You want to be including nutrient-dense, fibre-packed foods into your diet that provide healthy fats, protein, slow-release carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Things like lentils, chickpeas and vegetables are all perfect bases for a plant-rich plate.

Eggs are the perfect complement to a plant-rich plate. Not only do they add high quality protein and a plethora of other nutrients, but they are also key in helping you absorb more of the fat-soluble vitamins and antioxidants found in plant foods such as vitamin E and carotenoids.

Everything in moderation

Second, you should look at everything in moderation – because by removing all animal products from your diet, it could mean you’re depriving yourself of good, whole-food nutrition, some of which can only be found in foods like eggs, dairy foods, meat, or seafood.

Animal products are the only source of some nutrients like vitamin B12 and long chain omega 3 fats, while others contain the best source of absorbable and usable nutrients like iron, zinc, calcium, and choline. So, removing everything completely means cutting out a lot of the good stuff.

A good guide to achieving a plant-rich diet is to fill half your plate with veggies and/or fruit (depending on the meal), cook or dress them with a healthy fat with the best being extra virgin olive oil, or add a healthy fat-rich food such as nuts, seeds or avocado.

Then split the remaining plate between a wholegrain food such as quinoa or brown rice, or starchy vegetable such as potato or sweet potato in the skin, and a protein-rich food. This can either be another plant food such as legumes or tofu, or eggs, milk, cheese or yoghurt, meat, or seafood.

Including high quality proteins in your diet, like eggs, can help you to hit your daily recommended protein intakes. Eggs are packed with 13 essential vitamins and minerals and being as affordable and versatile as they are – they compliment a plant-rich diet perfectly. 

So, give plant rich diets a go. All of us, whether you are vegan or omnivore, and everywhere along that spectrum of eating, can benefit from eating more whole plant foods and the planet will too.
