Vegetarians / vegan diets
I've been a vegetarian for my whole life. Who else is trying to eliminate either just meat, or both meat and dairy from their diets, for either health or environmental reasons? :)
Graduate to being a raw foodist ! Begin with at least 60 % of your consumption in raw form, as found in nature ! Your body will thank you for it.
I became a vegan six months ago for health reasons, and have stayed so for health, environmental, and ethical reasons.
I started with a complete 100% whole foods diet for a month (think Forks Over Knives style). Since then, I allow a few not-whole foods (think Engine 2, Plant Strong) in my diet every now and then, but always vegan.
I've lost 25 lbs, have way more energy, need less sleep, and haven't gotten sick once since!
I am vegetarian and was also 11years and did it for the animals ;-)
I don't miss it :-)
I wish I could eat more vegetables and fruits, but I have a problem. I love potatoes, carrots, onions, and corn, but I can't seem to let go of being a 99% carnivore. Any hints?
What is a good brand for veggie burgers? I tried the black bean Morningstar veggie patties and didn't like it. Any suggestions?
Well, if you want vegan, I suggest smart deli, or gardein vegetarian meat brands. They have a good source of protein and vitamins
M veggie... :-) but there is one thing missing in all veg diet.. N that is vitamin b12.. Which is essential for brain..
So u guyz know any veg food for that?
Nutritional yeast and fortified cereals like bran, multi grain, corn flakes are a good source of vitamin b12, also wise to do supplements too if you can
Ive been a vegetarian since I was 4. I take a lot of pea protein
My pleasure, and well if you are getting your vitamins and nutrients from whole foods , i applaud you! Thats even better
I'm working my way to becoming a vegetarian. I eat meat about once a week. I decided to make the change after reading the China study. It changed the way I looked at nutrition.
Vegetarian for 13 years here. I've been thinking about going vegan but it's always the cheese that gets in the way :)
