Meat-Free Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic’s women’s health publication recommends eating a plant-based diet.

The May issue of Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource encourages eating a plant-based diet to lower cholesterol and blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. The article suggests consuming plant-based protein sources such as beans, nuts, seeds, quinoa, tofu, seitan, and tempeh that are more healthful than meat. In addition to listing a variety of vegan protein sources, it also states that women only require 45 grams of protein per day, which is easily achieved with plant-based options. The article concludes that reducing meat consumption is the best choice for long-term health.
