Plant Proteins & Dietary Diversity

Selecting a rainbow of different colored fruits and vegetables is one way to promote dietary diversity. Compared to eating the same things all the time, this strategy helps balance macro- and micronutrient intake. A study published in The Journal of Nutrition looks at the association between plant protein consumption and dietary diversity.
 
Analyzing data from 1,330 adults who participated in the French Nutrition and Health Survey, researchers found a positive association between plant protein consumption, dietary diversity and nutrient adequacy. Consuming animal proteins was not associated with a diverse diet. Meat and potatoes eaters should consider adding some colorful vegetables to their meal plans.
