From both health and environmental aspects, there are plenty of benefits to having a more plant-based diet. This recipe is an excellent example of how good plant-based can really taste, and since this meal is a pasta dish, it’s also an excellent pre- or post-training meal. A more plant-focused diet, if well-balanced, is rich in antioxidants, as it tends to have a high greens content. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals -which you get an increased amount of from training. Read more about antioxidants and training here. Switching even a few of your weekly meals to plant-based can have many health benefits. If you’re going for a 100% plant-based diet, remember there are certain considerations you’ll need to be mindful of, especially when combined with training. Therefore, always consult a nutritionist /dietitian for individual advice if unsure.
