Common Concerns For The Vegetarian Diet

Vegetarian Diet

"Many people are concerned that a vegetarian diet cannot provide all of the essential nutrients we need. The fact is, you don't need a nutrition degree to have a well-balanced diet with vegetarian foods.

* Protein: Combining of vegetarian foods isn't necessary to get more than enough protein. Eating an adequate number of calories per day made up of any normal variety of plant foods gives us all the protein our bodies need. Although there may be potentially less protein in a vegetarian's diet than a meat-eater's, this is actually an advantage. Excess protein has been linked to kidney stones, increased calcium excretion (which could lead to osteoporosis), some cancers, and possibly heart disease. A diet centered on beans, whole grains, and vegetables contains adequate amounts of protein without the "overdose" most meat-eaters get.


* Calcium: Calcium is easy to find in a vegetarian diet. Many dark green leafy vegetables (such as broccoli, kale, and collards) and beans (such as soy beans, navy beans, and chick peas) are good calcium sources, and calcium-fortified juices and cereals are readily available."

      Being vegetarian can be soooo challenging when dining out. Restaurants only seem to prepare vegetarian lasagna on their menus, and that is NOT my favorite. Now I'm starting to just eat raw food in summer it's going to be even more challenging!
