It’s a question that crops up time and time again among vegetarians.
For example, a study published in 2016 by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, looked at food choices for the average vegetarian diet and found that the majority of people who took part in the study ate more vegetables than meat.
But the researchers found that those who ate more fruit, vegetables, and grains were more likely to be healthy than those who consumed fewer, which may have contributed to the higher numbers of vegetarians in their study population.
The question of which foods are most conducive to a healthy diet has long been debated, with some suggesting that eating more of a particular plant or fruit may actually be harmful to health, while others say that the diet has no nutritional value at all.
