Vegetarianism: A Brief Introduction

Start living a Veggie-licious lifestyle today. Are you ready to join the green revolution and embrace a plant-based lifestyle? Then look no further than the vegetarian diet!

For those who are new to the veggie scene, the vegetarian diet is a diet that focuses on plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and nuts. Depending on personal preference, some vegetarians may also include dairy and eggs in their diet.

But why go vegetarian? The benefits are as bountiful as a farmers market! By eliminating or limiting animal products, vegetarians tend to have lower levels of saturated fat and cholesterol, leading to improved heart health (1). Plus, a diet rich in fruits and veggies has been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer (2).

What are the restrictions of a vegetarian diet?

While the specifics may vary, the overarching idea is to eliminate or limit animal products. This means no meat, poultry, or fish. For those who follow a more strict vegetarian diet, this may also include no dairy or eggs. But don’t worry, with all of the delicious plant-based options available, you won’t even miss the meat!
