Nutrition: getting off meat and dairy, whole food plant based diet

Plant-Based Diet

Plant-based diets are very popular and for good reason. People of all ages are realizing that processed high-fat foods contribute to inflammation and diseases like arthritis, cancer, heart disease, and others. The wellness professionals at Chiropractic Wellness Center in Newcastle are here to help you develop a healthy lifestyle that includes a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and protein.

What Is A Plant-Based Diet?

A plant-based diet focuses on eating foods including vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, legumes, and whole grains. Meat and dairy are removed or consumed at a minimum. Research indicates that eating plant-based foods will stabilize body weight, blood sugar levels, and maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Eating less meat and dairy results in a balanced mood, reduced stress and anxiety levels, and reduced pain. People who eat less meat also report sleeping better, having more energy, and digesting more easily.

Chiropractic Care and Plant-Based Diets

The old saying you are what you eat is true. Processed foods offer little to no nutritional value. They are full of sugar, chemicals, and ingredients that are difficult to pronounce and digest. Processed foods, which include many meat products and dairy products, are not only hard to digest. When eaten in large amounts, these processed foods can cause obesity and chronic inflammation. When you are overweight and have inflammation, your joints and immune systems are overburdened. Our chiropractor’s holistic approach to health will have you eating better, providing you with the nutritional fuel you need to function at optimal levels.

Transitioning to A Plant-Based Diet

Like any new routine, you must be fully committed to changing your eating habits. However, this does not mean you must remove every food you’ve ever enjoyed from your diet overnight. The Chiropractic Wellness Center team is here to help you design a plan for long-term success. First, add meatless meals to your menu. Replace meat with beans, tofu, and vegetable burgers. Add more vegetables and side dishes including brown rice and whole-grain pasta. These foods are incredibly delicious and satisfying while also being healthy for you.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Maxwell and her team are really great. I love that she takes the time to really figure out what is going on with me and genuinely CARES about my health and well-being. I have been going to her for years. I had been hurting SO badly with chronic pain due to illness and debilitating migraines and she got me in right away, and adjusted me gently since it had been a while; even this gentle (but thorough) adjustment had me feeling 100times better than I've been for weeks. I can't brag enough. I have always felt so good after her adjustments. I'll be making the drive from Mukilteo to Newcastle just to continue to receive treatment from her and Dr Stephanie every week."
