NYC Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Plant-Based, Vegetarian & Vegan Nutrition Plans 


Though “plant-based diet” seems to be the buzz-phrase of late, it’s actually a way of life for much of the world. 


Plant-based diets don’t exclusively refer to vegans or vegetarians. And following a plant-based diet doesn’t mean you never eat meat or dairy products. There are many plant-forward diets, including the Mediterranean Diet and the Nordic Diet. 


Plant-based diets are varied and exciting.



  • Flexitarian or semi-vegetarian diets, like the Mediterranean and Nordic diets, include a rich variety of foods like eggs, poultry, fish, dairy, and sometimes meat. The Mediterranean Diet has been a popular choice among certified nutritionists and registered dietitians for years, as there are scientific studies and clinical trials that prove that following this diet can reduce the risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, certain cancers, mental health problems, and frailty in older adults. And, it’s not as restrictive as other plant-based diets.
  • The pescatarian diet includes eggs, dairy, fish, and seafood. Pescatarians do not eat poultry or meat.
  • The vegetarian diet is one that includes eggs and dairy but no meat, poultry, fish or seafood.
  • The vegan diet includes no foods derived from animals (including foods like honey, dairy etc.)



All plant-based diets emphasize vegetables, pulses, peas, fruits,  seeds, nuts, and so many choices. By working with a RDN, you can be sure you’re getting enough protein and nutrients you need, as well as ideas and strategies on how to shift toward this nutrition option without losing your favorite flavors and family traditions.
