Veggies can be absolutely delish, but is it wise to put the kibosh on being a carnivore for good? Ask anyone who has nixed meat from their diet and they’ll probably tell you they feel healthier and more energetic than when they were chomping down on bacon and burgers.
If you’re considering making this lifestyle change, you should know that vegetarians aren’t automatically healthier than meat-eaters. Cutting out lean meats like chicken and seafood and replacing them with mountains of cheese and carbs will certainly not be doing your body any favors. A meat-free diet requires just as much planning. You’ll want to make sure you’re eating tons of vegetables and getting vegetarian sources of protein, like beans, tofu and nuts.
Even if you are not ready to make this life change, cutting back on the amount of meat you consume can be good for your body. Try to go meatless at least one night a week by opting for a yummy quiche, salad or veggie casserole.
There are many reasons people decide that beef, in fact, is actually not what’s for dinner. If you’re serious about going veg for health or ethical reasons, spend some time doing research and decide what type of diet works best for your lifestyle and beliefs.
