Executive Summary about Vegetarian Foods by Rebecca Bennett and Marius Bezuidenhout
The term “low-carb” is a big generalisation. You need to find the right foods to eat for a low carb diet.
Why not replace that steak breakfast, lunch and supper with a low carb vegetarian dish?
No, you don’t need a special permit to eat vegetarian foods, and you don’t need to hug trees, wear sandals, burn incense or hum. You probably already eat vegetarian food every day, such as nuts, fruit and vegetables. Now if you can just skip some of those meaty dishes with a vegetarian option, you’ll find this low carb vegetarian diet easier than you ever thought.
Many people believe that vegetarians have a limited diet. Don’t be surprised if your best friend tells you she has changed to low carb vegetarian foods only after she has fed you a divine supper which you had no idea was vegetarian! Food excites all of our five senses. Food can become a religion for us. One alternative approach to food that many people have never considered, or never considered carefully, is a diet consisting of only vegetarian foods.
Eat Your Vitamins (And Minerals)
One of the greatest misconceptions about vegetarian food diet is that humans require meats and meat by-products in their diet in order to receive all necessary vitamins. Both environmental situations as well as the methods used to store, process and prepare food can influence vitamins in food.
The vegetarian can get all of his needed vitamins, by eating a balanced diet. Vitamins can be either water-soluble or fat-soluble. Vitamin C and the B group of vitamins comprise the water-soluble vitamins. Milk alternatives for vegetarian food choices such as almonds, sesame seeds, fortified soya milks, rice milks, hemp milk, leafy green vegetables, and dried fruit are rich in calcium. Furthermore, while meat includes a high source of iron, one can also obtain it from vegetarian foods (in fact some studies suggest that superior iron actually comes from plant foods not meat) such as wholemeal bread, leafy green vegetables, molasses, pumpkin seeds, and dried fruit.
Today’s nutritional trend encourages people to eat a diet that is rich in fiber and low in fat.
Easy As 1-2-Eat
In addition to being healthy, eating vegetarian foods is much easier than one might assume. Also, the food is simple to prepare. You can prepare healthy vegetarian food meal in less than 30 minutes!
Vegetarianism Can Be Fun And Tasty
In vegetarian food recipes the components of plants become the main dish! Furthermore, vegetarian dishes tend to cost less than those that require meats.
