Whether for ethical, environmental or health reasons, more and more people are choosing to follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. This type of diet, when well applied, can be much better for health.
What should be monitored though this diet?
- Vitamin B12, which is essential for the nervous system and the production of blood cells, is found almost exclusively in products of animal origin.
- Iron is much less absorbed in vegetable products than animal products. This nutrient is found in legumes, some green vegetables, and whole grain breads and cereals.
- Protein, essential for maintaining muscles and for the proper functioning of the body, are mainly present in greater quantities in soybeans and legumes.
Reducing meat consumption is very good for your health, but you should also be aware of the risks of food deficiencies that can easily develop. Better food choices is therefore important to know, to control and to revise.
