The Vegetarian and Vegan Guide to a Low-Carb Diet

By Joe Leech, Authority Nutrition | June 6, 2015 Cutting back on carbs is not very complicated. Just replace the sugars and starches in your diet with vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, nuts and fats. Seems pretty straightforward, unless you don’t eat meat. Conventional low-carb diets rely heavily on meat, which makes them unsuitable for vegetarians. However, this does not need to be the case. Everyone can follow a low-carb diet, even vegetarians and vegans. Here’s how to do it: Why Low-Carb? …

This is why I love being vegetarian | Stuff.co.nz

… just a case of learning about how to make nutritious vegan meals and working up the mental strength to say goodbye to Tip Top ice cream. I’m perfectly healthy on a vegetarian diet. My iron levels have always been fine. I have mild arthritis and actually noticed an improvement in this once I stopped eating meat. It might have been a placebo effect, as I had read about the benefits of a vegetarian diet for arthritis before I made the change, but I’ll take a placebo effect if it means …

New vegans explain their motivations and how easy or hard it is to eat differently – The Portland Press Herald / Maine Sunday Telegram

… Berkey of Brewer is a former full-time chef (and one-time butcher) who adopted this style a year ago. “I don’t eat any oil, and I don’t eat anything processed, like Tofurky,” said Berkey, who trained in Europe and is a graduate of the culinary program at case Western Reserve University. “I eat whole grains, fruits and vegetables. I do eat tofu occasionally.” Berkey, 59, uses substitutes such as water to stir fry and parchment paper for baking (no need to grease the pan). At the …

The Veggie Bowl at Saigon Bowl Will Leave You Pho-filled – Denver | Denver News and Events | Westword

… you’ll receive a piping hot bowl of rice noodles in meat-free broth covered in an array of vegetables and tofu. Often, the vegetarian option gets overlooked; if you’re lucky, a few diced carrots and a stalk of broccoli or two are added to a vast sea of broth and noodles, leaving you to fill up mostly on liquid. That’s not the case at Saigon Bowl. Snap peas, bok choy, carrots, onions, broccoli, celery and baby corn accompany the tofu, creating a shield of nutrients to tackle before …

Paleo eaters need to start grappling with issues of sustainability : TreeHugger

… salaries. I guess that cost is why many paleo eaters continue to buy factory-farmed meat, which, in my opinion, defeats the purpose of pursuing the diet for health reasons, as that meat is loaded with antibiotics, hormones and plumping water and is usually contaminated with feces. Let’s say everyone could afford to buy pastured meat. There’s not nearly enough to go around for seven billion people, all of whom may wish to improve their personal health by the paleo way. In that case, questions …

Weeknight Vegetarian: The freezer — and home-cooked beans — come to the rescue – The Washington Post

Sometimes, more than anything, you need something easy. Easy to make, easy to eat. Maybe it’s because you’re exhausted from holiday traveling, or maybe it’s because you’ve just gotten over a little bout of sickness that has left you a little woozy. Maybe, as was my case a couple of weeks ago, it’s both. Was I ever glad to have such an overstuffed (if not exactly well-organized) pantry, fridge and freezer. It meant that when I was tired of road food, then even more tired of eating …

Eating insects is better than eating meat, but is it any more ethical? | MNN – Mother Nature Network

Not all vegans refuse to eat honey, but many do. They see interfering with the lives of insects (in this case, bees) to be as problematic as eating other animals or animal products. (And just so there’s no confusion, insects are animals.  Those who work for animal rights and advocate for insects are correctly including them in their definitions.) So, many vegans are starting to question the heavily hyped — and seemingly growing — act of consuming insects as food. Plenty of people …

Vegetarian gravy that won’t leave you missing meat – Longview News-Journal: Food

In case there is any doubt, let’s clear this up: You don’t have to eat meat to crave gravy at Thanksgiving. Unfortunately for vegetarians, much of the gravy served on Turkey Day is made using the drippings of the big bird. And with good reason; turkey gravy is delicious. But in the interest of giving vegetarians something to ladle over their mashed potatoes and stuffing, we decided to come up with a gravy good enough to serve to everyone, no matter what one’s preference on turkey. via …

Meatless meals even meat eaters will love – St. Joseph News-Press and FOX 26 KNPN: Life

In a region where beef often is what’s for dinner, it’s hard to make the case for vegetables, much less convince people to forgo meat altogether. However, heart disease and obesity are problems of epidemic proportions in America, so more people are finding ways to cut down their meat intake. One way to do this is to make vegetables the star attraction of the dinner plate. Lexi Moore, a volunteer with Goode Food-Delivered, has been a vegetarian since she was 19 but is engaged to a meat eater. …

Nutrition Know-How: The components of a vegetarian diet

… in order to provide the “complete” amount needed. Complementary proteins are foods with plant proteins eaten together to help increase the body’s absorption.  Plant protein can be found in foods such as beans, peas, nuts, and some grains such as quinoa. Iron Our bodies do not utilize iron from plant sources as well it does iron from animal foods.
