Health Perks of a Vegetarian Diet
Hide Video Transcript
SPEAKERGoing vegetarian may be healthy in a bunch of ways, starting with a longer life. Vegetarians seem less likely to get heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and some types of cancer.
But you don't automatically get these perks when you say goodbye to meat. You've got to eat a balanced diet with the right healthy foods.
You can get enough protein from tasty options like quinoa, tofu, nuts, beans, and lentils. Choose complex carbs to feel full longer. Fiber-packed ancient grains and whole-wheat pasta or bread can do the trick.
To get other important nutrients, fill your bowl with a rainbow of veggies, especially leafy green ones. Bon appetit!
