Vegetarian Food Pyramid – Live Longer
According to different data around the world, vegetarians have the lowest rates of chronic diseases and the highest adult life expectancy. This is very good news and perhaps these facts will make you consider switching to a vegetarian diet.
Vegetarian Diet – Flavor Rich
You might wonder how you can produce delicious flavors without meat. If you use different spices, herbs, vegetable oils and cheese you might be amazed with the results. With the right combination, you can create very tasty meals. The main concern with a vegetarian diet is to get enough of all the essential nutrients that your body needs. By combining a variety of grains and vegetables, you can ensure a diet rich in nutrients with all the nine essential amino acids in adequate amounts. But before changing your diet, please consult your doctor.
