plant-based diet Start practicing good-for-you behaviors to best protect your health from potentially harmful pathogens like bacteria and viruses. These include eating a healthy diet, keeping stress under control, getting good quality sleep, and exercising regularly, among others.
The nutrients you get from food, particularly plant-based ones, are essential to keeping your immune system functioning properly. According to Harvard Health Publishing, plant-forward eating patterns focus not only on fruits and vegetables, but also on nuts, seeds, oils, whole grains, legumes, and beans. This does not mean that you are vegetarian or vegan and will never eat meat or dairy. Rather, you are proportionately choosing more of your foods from plant sources.
Why don't we get started by planting crops and herbs in our backyards? Through this, it will be convenient for us to eat lots of fruits and veggies and good fats while having smaller amounts of meat!
Learn how to plant a variety of crops and herbs, as well as how to cook these into healthy dishes at home by tuning in to "Kalye Mabunga", an online show offering tips and techniques on backyard gardening.
Produced by Smart Communications, Inc. in partnership with the Agricultural Training Institute, "Kalye Mabunga" will be streamed through the
Smart Communities
Facebook page every Friday at 8PM until September 24, 2020.
