Nutritionist’s Notebook

Grace Forsythe from Viva! Health tells us all the benefits these delicious foods bring

Root vegetables are responsible for storing water and important nutrients for the leafy parts of plants above the soil, and we get all these nutrients when we eat them! There’s even evidence to suggest that it may have been the tubers and roots in our ancestors’ diet that drove our intelligence.

Carbohydrates

Many people avoid high carb foods in the fear that they will cause weight gain, which is only a problem if you provide your body with more than it needs. Carbs are often replaced with protein sources – despite carbohydrate and protein both providing four calories per gram while fat provides nine calories per gram.

About PlantBased

Here at PB HQ, we believe that cooking delicious, vegan food should be easy. Whether you’re holding a Saturday night get together with friends, or you’re looking for a budget-friendly, midweek meal that will please the kids, we want you to be inundated with choice. That’s why we’re proud to introduce a new layout to PlantBased magazine, to make it quick and easy to find the recipe you’re after. We’ve still packed in your favourite features, such as Dr Greger’s articles on his most recent breakthroughs, and reports from Viva! Health, but we’ve rearranged our exclusive plant-based recipes into five categories: breakfast and brunch, lunchtime meals, midweek favourites, something for the weekend, and sweet treats. This month, we'd recommend trying our Sweet Potato Pancakes (p38), Cajun Steak and Rice (p62) and Piña Colada Panna Cottas (p101) – we promise you won’t regret it! On page 18, we look at how the food we eat can affect how we feel based on our dosha. Are you a vata, pitta or kapha? Try our fun quiz (p20) to see what your dominant dosha is, and how you can adapt your diet to suit your body type. Likewise, we celebrate Organic September on page 12, as we look at how eating a pesticide-free diet can benefit not only your health, but the environment, too. Enjoy the issue!
