It is often considered that vegetarians restrict themselves in not eating fish or meat. But the truth is that today’s vegetarians are generally open to a range of foods and a variety of ingredients the average carnivore cannot imagine. Meat-eaters, in fact, usually eat the more restrictive diet. Moreover it can lead to those very dietary deficiencies of which vegetarianism is unjustly suspected.
Food is survival. It gives us the energy and raw materials to keep body and soul together – to build flesh, repair ills, walk, talk, dance, make love, think and be. Getting the right balance and variety in the diet is essential to well-being and vitality.
