Myth about Vegetarianism and Anemia — 2 Comments

    • How to maintain an adequate nutrient balance.
      1. Get adequate caloric intake and make sure a variety of foods is eaten. Vegetarian diets tend to be lower in protein than non-vegetarian diets but typically meet or exceed daily protein intake recommendations, which is beneficial. Plant sources of protein include soy beans, tofu, soy milk, legumes, nuts and seeds, and grains. (See Non – animal protein).

      2. Lacto-vegetarians (ones, who consume dairy products) have even bigger choice of protein sources (See Dairy Products in Ayurveda).
