PLANT-BASED TIPS

TIP OF THE DAY

Gradually shift to whole grains.

Not yet convinced of the taste of whole-grain rice and pasta? Then start with a half-portion of whole-grain and a half-portion of white rice or pasta. That way you can get used to the flavour gradually.

OTHER TIPS

An energetic start to the day with whole grain

Whole-grain foods are more than just a good source of fibre – they're also a good source of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants. Include a whole grain cereal such as granola or porrige at breakfast time, serve with soya milk alternative, or even almond milk, for a nutritious start to the day

Plant sources of omega 3 fats

Plant sources of the essential Omega 3 & 6 fats can be found in certain vegetable oils such as rapeseed, linseed, flaxseed and walnut. Nuts, seeds, green leafy vegetables and soya beans also contain omega 3 and 6.
