Health Tip: Eating Vegetarian

Health Tip: Eating Vegetarian

05/17/13

(HealthDay News) -- If you're eating a vegetarian diet, it's important to make sure you're getting enough nutrients and making healthy meat-free choices.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture offers these suggestions for vegetarians:

  • Don't load up on cheese. Instead, choose low-fat proteins such as rice, lentils or beans as a base for your meal.
  • Drink calcium-fortified soy milk to cut down on cholesterol and fat, without scrimping on calcium.
  • Substitute veggies in place of meat in dishes such as pasta, pizza, stir-fry or tacos.
  • Make burger-like patties from soy, beans or lentils.
  • Ask for a vegetarian substitution for dishes at restaurants.
