Vegetarian diets are becoming increasingly popular as meat prices, as well as health concerns, rise. Many people are cutting down or cutting out meat in favor of a fully vegetarian diet - here's what you need to know... A brief history of vegetarianism: Although it only appeared as we know it today in the 19th century, vegetarianism isn't a recent craze. Many ancient philosophies, notably Hindu, Greek and even Christianity, have praised its virtues. In the past, it was adopted for philosophical or religious reasons, although today it owes its popularity mainly to ethnic, gustative, health and ecological factors. There are several types of vegetarian diets, some of which are more restrictive than others. The most widespread are Lacto-Ovo Vegetarianism, which consists of not eating meat but allows animal products such as eggs and dairy produce. This is the most common veggie diet. In addition, there is: - A Lacto-vegetarian diet excluding all animal products except dairy produce. - An Ovo vegetarian diet excluding all animal products except eggs. - A pescetarian diet excluding meat but not fish. - A vegan diet, which excludes all animal products and animal derived products. Nutritional particularities: Most veggies follow the most popular vegetarian diet (Lacto vegetarianism, which includes eggs and dairy produce) can provide a balanced diet in the Western world because it includes all the essential food groups. The consumption of eggs and dairy products can prevent deficiencies caused by a lack of meat and fish because they provide the right amounts of good quality protein. In terms of micro nutrients, eggs, cereals, and pulses provide iron; dairy produce provides calcium; cereals (especially whole grains) provide B Vitamins; fruit and vegetables provide Vitamin A; eggs and dairy products provide Vitamin D. - You can be a healthy vegetarian if you take all these factors into account and get a good balance of different foods (see below). A vegetarian diet could be the healthiest diet around because you eat less cholesterol and saturated fat than on a normal diet without compromising on other essential nutrients. - The more restrictive veganism carries a higher risk of deficiencies, notably in protein, essential amino acids, iron, zinc, Vitamins A, and D but there are ways to supplement these if you choose to go vegan - research and imagination are key to staying healthy and vegan.
