I can hit 34 plants on a carnivore diet lightly seasoned with the herbs, spices, olive & avocado & coconut oils, coffee & teas in my kitchen. Ha ha!

Exactly my point.

For anyone who eats a plant based diet, how could they NOT eat at least 30 plants a week? That's only 4 or 5 plants a day.

Even if they eat plain oatmeal (1) every day for breakfast, a PB and Jelly sandwich (3) every day for lunch, pasta (1) and jarred sauce (tomatoes, onion, garlic, oregano, basil - that alone would provide at least 5 plants) every day for dinner, that's still going to provide a minimum of about 10 plants towards the 30, leaving the need for 20 more to hit 30 for the week... or less than 3 more plants each day. How difficult could that possibly be for someone who only eats plant based foods?

Plant based.

Isn't that cow a storage system for grass?

If I eat a plant based cow, I feel I'm eating a plant based diet.

Seriously, I think "Plant Based" is merely the new buzz word to get you to eat more corporate, industrial, frankenfoods.

Let me see, I had almonds, pumpkin seeds (roasted in coconut oil), mixed nuts (pistachios, macadamias, pecans, walnuts, cashews, filberts, one Brazil nut, in peanut oil), and ripe olives today.

Oh and coffee, green tea, black tea, and oolong tea. The coffee and tee were sweetened with stevia.

I had some cheese, cream, and bacon too. I ate the cheese with a half lavash (6 net carbs) made with brown rice, flax seed, rice bran, and olive oil.

And I took some psyllium hull capsules to add bulk to my diet. Almost forgot, drank a bit of hibiscus tea, too.

22 plants and only 6 different cheeses, some cream, and some bacon. I guess I'm plant based.
