Welcome Green Monsters! I'm so excited to hear you've been a vegetarian for a whole month! I am a semi-vegetarian (I eat seafood) for approximately 7 years now and I never regretted this. I guess I did make the quantity 1 fault though, so now carrying a child I must catch up on flat iron really really fast! I assume it's a good idea to have extra iron, say, once a week, if you don't eat meat. And everything wil be fine! :) You grain & lentils recipe appears very attractive!
Side Take note: You'll sometimes notice vegans explain how broccoli is higher in protein than steak on a caloric basis, or how elephants will be the largest land pets or animals on earth in support of eat grass-these are amusing aphorisms, but of little relevance to a vegan's simple fact. Broccoli is higher in health proteins, but reduced protein quality (such as essential amino acid content and digestibility), not forgetting difficult to consume enough of to get 20 grams of necessary protein. Elephants are vastly different pets or animals than humans, with vastly different physiologies; you might forget about thrive on their diet than they could on ours.
A healthy, balanced vegetarian diet can affect our body in many good ways. Generally, following a vegetarian diet makes people healthier. Vegetarian diets decrease the risk of many forms of cancer, cardiovascular disease, gallstones, kidney stones, osteoporosis and diabetes, based on the Health professionals Committee for Responsible Medication. Individuals who eat no beef also tend to have lower blood circulation pressure and lower cholesterol, and they ponder less overall than beef eaters do.
It is the position of the American Dietetic Connection and Dietitians of Canada that correctly organized vegetarian diets are healthy, nutritionally adequate, and offer health benefits in the reduction and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegan and other styles of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all periods of the life pattern, including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, years as a child, and adolescence. Vegetarian diets offer a number of healthy benefits, including lower levels of saturated body fat, cholesterol, and pet health proteins as well as higher degrees of carbohydrates, dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium, folate, and antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and phytochemicals.
Fat absorption should be limited, especially the consumption of saturated and trans fatty acids (animal fats, full-cream milk products, delicious chocolate, coconut, hard margarine, baked goods such as pies and cookies and hand natural oils such as coffee creamers and manufactured cream). Alternatively include more monounsaturated fats in limited volumes in what you eat (for example, use canola or essential olive oil rather than sunflower engine oil, and multiply avocado or peanut butter rather than margarine on bread). Also choose polyunsaturated rather than saturated fat.
