Going vegetarian

Can a vegetarian diet supply your body with enough nutrients? Chef Walter Husbands explains.

Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian eating styles can be healthful. The bottom line depends on your food choices over time. Though lots of studies show a positive link between vegetarian eating and health.

The information I have read says that in general, heart disease, high blood pressure, adult-onset diabetes, obesity and some forms of cancer tend to develop less often among vegetarians than non-vegetarians.

If you're considering a vegetarian lifestyle, follow these tips to help you get started:

  • Make a list of all the meatless dishes you already enjoy
  • Browse through vegetarian cookbooks and write down recipes that sound appealing
  • Go to a local natural food stores and check out some vegetarian foods
  • Try a few products made with soy
