You may have seen pretty Instagram pictures of potatoes and veggies with the hashtag HCLF or high-carb low-fat vegan. The craze for limiting fats – meaning avocados, nuts, seeds, and oils – while embracing whole grains seem confusing when diet trends are emphasizing fats. Yet, studies seem to show that HCLF diets are health-promoting, can assist in weight-loss, and may even help with acne. Of course, cutting out overly processed junk food and triggering foods such as soy can also be one of the reasons a HCLF diet works so well! This does not mean eliminating healthy fats altogether, but focusing more one fruits, veggies, and whole grains. Add a few HCLF recipes into your recipe routine, and enjoy the benefits of a truly plant-based diet!
