What Are the Benefits of a Plant Based Diet?
Plant based foods are a great choice for your health and the health of the planet. That’s why we are one of the few healthy lunch places offering a plant based menu. A plant based diet is one based on eating mostly, if not completely, plant foods, and avoiding animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs. Processed sugars are avoided, and the emphasis is on whole and minimally processed foods. According to the Cleveland Clinic, plant based diets are high in fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. This type of diet is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Research has shown that following a plant based diet has the power to lower your risks of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, certain cancers, digestive problems, and more.
Healthy Lunch Places: The Plant Based Choice
Following a plant based diet might seem intimidating. One of the reasons we created Nourish Wellness Cafe is because we believed if our community had access to healthy lunch places showcasing the variety and deliciousness of plant based foods, they would benefit from incorporating more plants into their diet. At Nourish, you can enjoy the fully satisfying spectrum of plants: nourishing grains, vibrant vegetables, succulent fruits, and creamy non dairy milks. Whether or not you are interested in going plant based, you will experience the abundant deliciousness that plants have to offer us when you choose from our menu.

“My favorite food spot in Northampton. It’s great for grab and go, meeting with friends, dates, getting work done, you name it!… I haven’t tried every single item on the menu but I have faith from the many things I have tried that there’s not a single bad item in that place. Thank you for being part of the local, organic food revolution!” – Olivia V. on Yelp
