Being a vegetarian is a big decision

Being a vegetarian is a big decision. How not, you should leave precisely the type of food you like for certain reasons. From the desire to reduce cholesterol up for reasons of environmental care.

However, you do not actually need to get rid of the foods you love. Especially if you feel the meal so less kick if not equipped meat. New research shows, you do not need to avoid meat forever to enjoy the benefits that full-time vegetarian.

You just need a holiday meal of beef, chicken, fish, goat, or pig a few days a week. According to the researchers, this method should be tried.

"Eat vegetables two days a week can produce health benefits, environmental, financial and real. You do not need to make some major changes that make you feel overwhelmed," said Kate Geagan, RD, author of Go Green Get Lean.

The key is to get the nutrients you need in two days without meat. Choose the type of vegetables and fruits that vary so you get lots of vitamin and mineral intake. Add protein from vegetable sources, such as tofu, tempeh, and oncom, and nuts, such as soybeans, green beans, red beans, and peanut butter to spread bread wheat. This option is able to overcome hunger, also satisfying the desire for a good meal.

The results of this study is in line with a campaign that was launched in 2003, named Meatless Monday. The campaign is designed to encourage Americans to reduce the saturated fat from their diet.

"Two years ago there was only one blogger who writes about meat-free day," said Chris Elam, director of the program. "Now there are more than 150 bloggers, and nearly 50 campus cafeteria that apply Meatless Mondays."

In a survey conducted by Self magazine, shows that 40 percent of readers wanted to avoid the meat at least several days a week. Then, there are 11 percent of readers who have applied the day without meat every two weeks. That is, there is a desire to eat more vegetables, it's just that many people still do not dare leave the meat on.

If you are able to become a vegetarian two days a week, try increasing frequency. Good luck.
