The lifestyle of a vegetarian is one of the most controversial, and in my opinion, one of the most difficult to follow. However, it is chosen by many as a healthy lifestyle by incorporating a lot of fiber and plant proteins.
However, there is no denying that living alone does not make plants and animal products such as milk or eggs, which in no way harm the animal, in any way affect the body because there is simply essential proteins can only take them in the flesh milk or eggs.
In that sense, nutritionists recommend carrying a balanced diet to ensure an optimal level of iron and vitamin B12 . This ensures that, should a woman get pregnant vegetarian, you can give your baby all the nutrients necessary for their formation and growth.
Therefore, it should complement the vegetarian diet regularly consuming brewer’s yeast, whole grains, whole wheat, whole grains and seeds to ensure a daily intake of B complex .
Unfortunately for vegetarians, the complex B is only found in animal products and is essential for the synthesis of hemoglobin and cell production.
Its long-term flaw can lead to pernicious anemia, so if you do not eat meat or milk should be consumed in capsules.
Regarding the protein , these can be found in eggs, whole grains , nuts and milk, among other products. Protein, fiber and carbohydrates you can get them in the Andean grains like quinoa, amaranth and tarwi.
Our body also needs to consume essential oils such as omega 3 and 6 can be obtained from the mix and flax, sesame, olive oil and inchi sacha, rather than the fish.
In the case of salads , they are best taken fresh to boiled and several colors, as it indicates the variety of vitamins we consume.
How to balance your diet
In the morning, eat whole grains such as granola and whole wheat bread, a cup of milk (cow or soy milk), cheese and eggs. You can supplement your diet with a glass of fruit juice by adding two tablespoons of flaxseed blend.
In the afternoon, eat brown rice or quinoa with beans and complemented with a fresh tortilla with egg and flour. If you’re still hungry, bites between meals a piece of fruit.
