I’m a big fan of any kind of plant-based food, but I am especially enamored with vegetarian food. The taste is so delicious, there’s no way I could pick a single food that doesn’t taste good.
A meatless vegetarian would be awesome.
That is, I like to eat things I can’t really eat because I can’t find healthy ones. I don’t have the time to think about it at all.
Vegetarianism is a lifestyle, not so much a food preference. Most people who eat meat or fish are also vegans or vegetarians. For vegetarians, there are many foods that you could eat. Check out our own blog post to check out some great vegan recipes.
I think the difference is that vegitarians don’t worry about being on an “off” diet (and we all know how that ends). Vegitarians focus on nutrition and are more willing to sacrifice the taste of vegetables for the health benefits. Vegitarians are more likely to make time for a salad or a simple smoothie. Vegitarians usually live in a more active lifestyle and are more likely to exercise.
A typical vegan pizza will be about as nutritious as a pizza slice. It’s similar to a burger and it comes in a nice variety of flavors. It’s not just a vegetable, it’s a protein. It’s also a plant-based dish. It’s a super-food.
I would classify vegetarians as those who eat a diet low in animal products. This is because meat and dairy products are major sources of saturated fat, or cholesterol, as well as protein and fiber. In order to minimize these, vegetarians are low on the food chain, thus low on saturated fat, high on fiber, and low on protein.
The more I learn, the more I realize that it is this type of eating pattern that has been linked to an increased risk for heart disease and cancer. What is heart disease, and why is it a problem? Well, it is caused by a buildup of plaque inside of arteries, thus restricting blood flow to the heart. It can kill you in a very gruesome manner. This is why vegetarians are more likely to go on diets than non-vegetarians.
The vegetarian diet has been linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and many other health conditions. Vegans are also much less likely to die prematurely than meat-eaters. In fact, the same study that found that vegetarians had a lower risk for heart disease and cancer also found that vegetarians were less likely to die from other causes, such as cancer, than meat-eaters.
The evidence is clear, vegetarian diets have been linked to health benefits. So if you’re thinking about giving up meat, we have a few tips of what to do. Vegans are less likely to be obese. Vegetarians also tend to eat a lower calorie diet, so a low-calorie diet is a great way to lose weight without feeling hungry.
