What is the plant-forward diet?

The plant forward diet is a style of eating that emphasizes plant-based foods like vegetables and fruits, plant-based proteins, whole grains, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices and plant oils without necessarily eliminating animal products. 

How does plant-forward differ from other plant-based diets?

All plant-based diets, plant-forward included, are made up of primarily plant-based foods. Plant-forward differs from other plant-based diets because it allows for meat in small quantities relative to plants.
