Why not join in and eat vegetarian for a week? You could start slowly and try just one meat-free day? Try my delicious Roasted Aubergine & Green Bean Curry to get you started!
Research suggests that a varied, balanced vegetarian diet is healthier than that of the typical meat-eater, with a lower incidence of obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and type II diabetes. It is also associated with a lower incidence of some cancers. If you are thinking of trying vegetarianism, then do your research! It’s very important that you don’t just cut out meat and fish as they are rich in protein and other essential nutrients and are vital to good health. They should be substituted with a wide variety of other protein-rich sources such as beans, lentils, peas, eggs, dairy, nuts and seeds. If you would like some help with changing your diet to a vegetarian one or you are a vegetarian and would like some reassurance that you are eating the right balance of nutrients then please do book an appointment.
