Food Philosophies: Vegetarian

September 20, 2014 1 min read

To be specific, since there are a few arguments over what constitutes a vegetarian and the many kinds of vegetarianism out there, I’ll be talking about lacto-ovo vegetarians, who refrain from eating animal flesh, but will eat animal byproducts such as eggs or milk. Here's a handy dandy chart: vegetarian_diet_type I’m a vegetarian and have been for 12 years, but I’ll be sure to keep my bias in check. Basically, vegetarianism is the practice of eating a plant-based diet that abstains from the consumption of meat. Foods Included: vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy products, legumes, grains, nuts/seeds Foods Excluded: red meat, poultry, seafood Possible Benefits:
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Lowers risk of heart disease
  • Possible weight loss
  • Reduced risk of obesity and various forms of cancer
  • Lower intake of saturated fats
  • Cost effective – vegetarian substitutes are generally less expensive than meat
Possible Drawbacks:
  • Chance of eating incomplete proteins, must combine foods to get necessary amino acids. (eg. Hummus with pita bread, beans with brown rice)
  • Other possible deficiencies such as Vitamin D, B12, iron, and calcium
  • Your sister might chase you around with a porkchop shouting “YOU MUST EAT OF THE FLESH OF THE PIG CREATURE” (No? Just me as a child? Well… it’s a valid concern)
Recipe To Try: Vegetarian tacos
