Vegeterian As A Lifestyle

Abstinence from meat and vegetarianism is a worldwide popular system of feeding that exclude taking meat products or limiting their consumption as well as animal based products. The origins of vegetarianism are in the ancient times.
Vegans are a kind of orthodox vegetarians who refuse to eat any kind of meat, fish, sea food, eggs, milk and products based on milk and sometimes even honey.
Lactovegetarians are people who do not avoid some milk products,
Ovo-lacto vegetarians are those who concede eating not only milk products but also eggs of some domestic birds.
All the types of vegetarianism allow thermal processing of food and this is one of the main feature that distinguishes it from raw eating.
Vegetarians use about 300 types of vegetables, root plants, approximately 600 kinds of fruit and 200 types of nuts. Nuts and beans are a good source of natural proteins, especially soy, lens, peas along with spinach, kale turnip and cauliflower. Vegetable oils such as olive, sunflower, cannabis, cocoa, nut and corn oils are the best providers of daily fat. Almost all the fruits contain carbohydrates that are also necessary for people every day. Vinegar and flavoring are considered as unfit for food.
There are pieces of advice to combine several items of food, for example, rice with beans; wheat with peanuts and sesame, etc.
Specialists are still uncertain about the beneficial features of vegetarianism. Some of the vegetarian lifestyle is admitted to be good for health however some of the scientists believe there must be animal based proteins in a daily food ration.
Specialists say that sticking to vegan diet for a long time leads to a significant deficiency of iron, calcium, zinc and vital amino acids because they are not present in vegetable fruit or they are not enough. Although the quantity of nutritional elements in vegan food can be quite enough but they can be badly digested and produce no positive effect.
It is said that even healthy people can suffer from dysbiosis, vitamin deficiency, and proteins insufficiency. As a result, strict vegetarianism is considered as bad nutrition plan for kids, youngsters, pregnant women, nursing mothers and sportsmen.
Vegetarianism cannot satisfy easily digested calcium needs when it comes to women during their menopause and old people and that is why there is a high risk of osteoporosis.
However lacto vegetarianism and ovo-lacto vegetarianism are not that infamous as veganism. Such a lifestyle can be beneficial for health and is sometimes even used like treatment for hypertonia, obesity, pyelonephritis, podagra, atherosclerosis, circulatory inefficiency and other diseases.
A lot of people today who had started their vegetarian diet decades ago confirm that they feel really good and healthy despite what scientists usually say. It is quite interesting that more and more people today tend to become vegetarians although the society as a whole still rejects it. The World Health Organization started to associate vegetarianism with a mental disorder that needs to be treated. The opinions differ and no one still can say for sure if being a vegetarian is good or bad.

  1. While I love good vegetarian cooking (and I don’t mean gourmet vegetarian diets, which depend on a lot of high calorie, expensive foods to make a meal), I still eat fish and chicken regularly as protein. Since all the bad publicity came out about red meats, however, I try to avoid them most of the time. Even when I am trying to budget closely, though, I do find that a varied and complex, nutritious and interesting vegetarian diet (these days at least) costs more than buying cheap cuts of chicken or even fish. And with the crop failures and droughts we are facing, we need some help from the ancient Romans and their aqueduct-building procedures (I’m writing partly in jest here–probably modern irrigation techniques have topped these old techniques by quite a bit). I just hope that enough people start paying serious attention to what is happening with the planet that we can stop or at least slow the extreme weather conditions we have helped cause to the point where we can get our crops back on growth target again. (P.S.–I do go to other sites out of my direct line of interest–writing/literature–but I rarely comment if I think my experience has nothing to add. Thanks for the advice, though; maybe they would like to hear from me anyway!)

  2. Sorry, the “P.S.” above must be confusing. It was a note from WordPress, I guess, reminding me to visit other sites (which in this case I did. Good advice!).

  3. Thank you so much for your opinion, that was very interesting to read your comments. I basically think the same way as you are. To me it is more important to live my life like this (even by paying a higher price for vegan products) but with a feeling that I am really doing everything in a correct way. I hope that more people will take vegetarian lifestyle into consideration with the lapse of time though.

  4. Thank you for reading and the “like” of my post.

  5. You are more than welcome! I love to explore new recipes and hew tips on cooking because I can say it’s one of my favorite hobbies ever.

  6. (Don’t forget canola oil–made from the rapeseed (they apparently changed the name because they were afraid the oil would be unpopular because of it)–which is about as good for you as olive oil is.)

    You know, I just keep thinking again and again about your post on vegetarianism and veganism, and even though I can’t see myself going totally without at least some chicken and fish for the rest of my life, I really feel that re:vegetables and crops, technology is missing the boat. The idea of weather control has come up for consideration so many times in so many science fiction novels, and it’s a well-established fact that a lot of scientific ideas get circulated first in the fictional medium. So, why isn’t technology trying to regulate the weather so that we don’t lose all our crops in these ridiculous weather conditions we’ve helped bring on ourselves with carelessness and waste of resources? I don’t know. Got a clue?
