Vegetarian Diet Disadvantage - a discussion
by Webmaster, All4NaturalHealth.com
Is there any clear vegetarian diet disadvantage?
I can perhaps think of a few, although I find that each of them can be quite easily explained away.
Having said that, there is a wide variety of possibilities for recipes within vegetarian diets, most of which are unexplored by you and me. So, on turning vegetarian, explore and learn new vegetarian recipes to keep the experience fresh and exciting. And don't be afraid to try new types of food.
This is very much a matter of opinion, although if we took a poll, I'm quite sure most people will agree with the above statement.
However, having said that, vegetarian recipes can be prepared and made tasty in many different ways. And, again, most of the possibilities are untried and unexplored by most people.
I have visited a few vegetarian restaurants which have some marvelously delicious dishes, and I would never have known about them had I not decided to reduce my consumption of animal-based products and to try more vegetarian foods.
So, embrace the spirit of adventure and explore. Try new foods and learn new recipes. You'll be surprised at how great-tasting vegetarian recipes can be.
And, don't hesitate to use herbs and spices, as well as healthy sauces and condiments, to liven up your vegetarian dishes and recipes.
The good thing is, over time, your body and your taste buds will adapt to your new vegetarian diet. Do not be surprised if you never ever miss animal-based foods again. You may even grow to dislike them. Not kidding.
