A healthy vegetarian nutrition consists primarily of plant based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. Because of that, a vegetarian diet generally contains less fat and cholesterol, and typically includes more fiber. Vegetarian food, like grains, pulses and vegetables, and as pre-cooked meals, is widely available nowadays. You can buy it in any markets, corner shops. Meatless products, such as tofu dogs, soy burgers, nut loaves or texturized vegetable protein, add variety to your vegetarian diet. These products simulate the taste and texture of meat and usually have less fat and calories. Many of the meatless products, such as tofu or tempeh, are made from soybeans. If you wanna become a vegan, you need to find alternatives for eggs and dairy products. Instead of cow's milk you can drink a soymilk or rice milk, instead of butter use olive oil or canola oil.
ABOUT VEGETARIAN TIMES
The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.
—Charles Darwin, English naturalist (1809–1882)
Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.
—James A. Froude, English historian (1818–1894)
If you visit the killing floor of a slaughterhouse, it will brand your soul for life.
—Howard Lyman, author of Mad Cowboy
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.
—Leo Tolstoy, Russian novelist (1828–1910)
