Stuff we’re loving: Types of vegetarians

Some people always think they are vegetarian, but do you know what kind of vegetarian are you?

Vegetarians are not just people only can and only eat vegetables. Depends on Jolinda Hackett reports, basically, there are six kinds of vegetarian, Pescatarian, Flexitarian, Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw Vegan and Macrobiotic.

Pescatarian means that people abstains from eating all animal meat with the exception of fish; they do this usually for health reasons. Flexitarian, also we can call it Semi-vegetarian, these kind of people occasionally eat meat. Vegetarian means the people who don’t eat any meat, but they can accept eggs and dairy products. Vegan is that people don’t eat any meat, eggs, and any dairy products, even food containing these ingredients. Raw vegan diet consists of unprocessed vegan foods that have not been heated above 115 degrees, they believe that foods cooked above this temperature have lost a significant amount of their nutritional value and are harmful to the body. Macrobiotic diet includes unprocessed vegan foods, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and allows the occasional consumption of fish. Sugar and refined oils are avoided.

 For me, I prefer the Pescatarian because I think that the health is the most important thing to me, and it is also very important for everyone because without good health condition, we can do nothing and become your friend’s and family’s burden.

    I agree, health should influence at least some of your eating habits. Flextarianism is becoming more and more popular as people become more and more health conscious. I work for an non-profit public health campaign called Meatless Mondays, which encourages people to cut meat from their meals one day a week, thus reducing an individual’s chances of getting heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.

    If you are interested in healthy, affordable, tasty meatless recipes, I suggest you check out http://www.meatlessmonday.com. Every week there is a theme. (This weeks theme is pumpkin!) Meatless Monday is also affiliated with Johns Hopkins Medical School, so the site can also be a great resource for health articles and tips.
