Vegetarianism

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada that appropriately planned vegetarian diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.

Vegetarian diets offer a number of advantages, including lower levels of saturated fat, cholesterol and animal protein, and higher levels of carbohydrates, fiber, magnesium, boron, folate, antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, carotenoids and phytochemicals.

Healthy eating begins at the grocery store. Fill your cart with whole grain breads and cereals, rice and pasta, fruit and vegetables, milk and milk products, lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs and alternatives such as dried beans, peas and lentils. Read labels to guide your food choices.
