Plant-Based Diet for Heart Health

(continued)

Plant-Based Food Choices

Switching to an entirely plant-based diet may be easier than you think. Dairy alternatives include:

  • Soy milk (plain, unsweetened, vanilla, or chocolate)
  • Soy-based cheeses (bricks, slices, or shredded)
  • Soy-based yogurts

 Meat substitutes include:

  • Tofu (silken, firm, or extra-firm soy milk curds)
  • Tempeh (fermented soy)
  • Seitan (wheat protein)
  • Beans, or high-protein grains (millet, quinoa, etc.)  as primary protein sources
