Vegetarian and Special Diets

Diets that restrict food groups can be healthy. But they may require extra education. Especially to make the best choices to promote over all health.

  • That is, how will you get the vitamins and minerals found in the foods you will no longer eat?
  • Depending on your usual diet, vegetarian and vegan diets can be difficult to follow if it involves a major dietary change.
  • Some people prefer progressively cutting out animal-products.
  • Introducing new foods to expand the palate and becoming an educated consumer are key to sustainably adopting a healthy version of the diet.
