Plant based diets are definitely the way to go! If you are considering or are following a vegan or vegetarian diet, it would be worth your time to meet with a registered dietitian to make sure you are filling in the nutrient gaps that can come along when avoiding animal proteins or animal products. There is so much more to consider than just protein.
Did you know that vegans and vegetarians also need to pay attention to the amount of omega-3 fatty acids, B12, iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamin D in their diets? Proper nutrition for vegans and vegetarians is important for energy level, stress management, and optimal health.
