When the doctor suggested 1 week on a “plant-based diet” for my husband, I thought, “Oh, no! There goes the Fast Lifestyle out the window!” But as I researched it, I discovered that the principles of a Plant-Based Diet dovetailed nicely with a Fast Diet. So we could maintain our 5:2 Diet on Mondays and Thursdays and even use standard Fast recipes on Slow Days, too!
Perhaps the biggest change was using green smoothies instead of our usual fruit smoothie. But it turns out that the calories don’t change. Looks weird, but the flavor isn’t as bad as it looks. More about those later.
