Peganism focuses on nutrient-dense, whole food – eating more vegetables and plants, whilst cutting back on processed foods. This benefits us because healthy fats help prevent disease, promote heart health, and reduce inflammation. Low-glycaemic veg such as asparagus, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower make the bulk of the Pegan diet, alongside fruit, nuts (excluding peanuts), seeds, fish, meat, and eggs.
Whichever way you want to make changes to your diet or lifestyle, the garden gives us inspiration, motivation and production—it’s so easy to produce your own crops once you have the incentive to. Benefits abound for growing your own and planning a well-rounded diet is just one of them, so get planting to give your home-grown plate lots of vegan variety.
