Healthy vegetarian

  1. 1. Healthy Vegetarian Nowadays, more people are embracing as a healthy lifestyle and healthy video recipes choice once thought of as “alternative” eating practises such as vegetarianism. What used to be a minority group has chef videos cooking now become an enormous market for food manufacturers, retailers and restaurants. This is a subset of the broader health food segment which includes lactose- free, diabetic-friendly low-glycemic, low-carbohydrate meal and diet options. Vegetarian food is generallyviewed as healthy because it provides higher amounts of certain nutrients which arenot as prevalent from conventional eating practises which have high amounts ofanimal products, processed and artificial ingredients, chemicals and preservatives.Despite the concern of some that it could be potentially deficient in protein andcertain micro-nutrients, careful planning of consuming solely plant-based foodassures that all nutritive requirements are met and even exceeded. Keywords you will hear from a lot of vegetarians who promote this lifestyle(with varying degrees of intensity and passion) are enzymes, phytonutrients andantioxidants. They claim that these predominantly plant-based compounds benefitthe body in astounding ways from giving the immune system a boost to reversing theageing process. Aside from this, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is high in fiberthat aids in overall digestion process from vitamin and mineral absorption to thewaste elimination. Weight loss through natural detoxification is an effect fromconsuming a diet high in fiber. Not unlike other healthy eating habits, vegetarians should also eat balanceddiet taking extra care that there is adequate protein and other important nutrientsthat are not as readily available in most fruits and vegetables. Carbohydrates,protein and even fats all have a place on a healthy vegetarian plate. Fat is requiredby the body to aid in the absorption of certain vitamins. Great plant sources of goodfat include nut butters, oils, avocado and coconut. Biryani which is an aromatic and flavorful Indian rice dish is a perfect exampleof a dish that is filling and sustaining. Rice provided energy while the addedingredients boost the nutrient content as well as improve its flavour. It has a lot ofseasonal vegetables, nuts and even dried fruit include. Though it is oftentimes madewith chicken, its meat-free counterpart is no less palate-pleasing. Soup and salad recipes are provided as well. Organic ingredients, a boon forvegetarians as these are free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides, are widelyused though these are oftentimes more expensive and hard to come by.
