Nutrient Differences Between Plant and Animal Products

Plant products:
  • Nature doesn’t package cholesterol in any food.
  • Nature supplies primarily unsaturated fat.
  • Nature generally packages this fat in small quantities, except in nuts and seeds.
  • Nature never packages fat without fiber and an array of vitamins and minerals.
  • Nature never packages protein without fiber and an array of vitamins and minerals.
  • Nature generally includes carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water together in all plants in more modest quantities rather than large concentrations of just one element.
  • Nature has equipped plants to be our major source of energy and protection from disease.

Contrast that with animal products:
  • Flesh and dairy foods all contain cholesterol.
  • These foods supply saturated fat.
  • These foods supply the dangerous combination of both cholesterol and saturated fat together.
  • Cholesterol and saturated fat are in larger quantities than the unsaturated fats in plant foods.
  • Fat comes without fiber.
  • Protein comes without fiber.
  • These foods are noted for supplying only a few elements, in higher concentrations, rather than a wide array of nutrients in modest amounts.
  • Flesh has no significant carbohydrate, the body’s premium fuel.
