Vegetarian diets and dishes

Print

veggie heart cVegetarianism is a special plant-based diet. A lot of people all around the world are vegetarians and vegans. They eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds. Also veggie products are quorn (mock meat mycoprotein produced in the United Kingdom and Ireland), soya beans, tofu (it is made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks), vecon (nutritious and versatile, gluten free vegetable stock with vitamins and iron) etc. But you don't have to use those products to cook veggie dishes – all of us from time to time eat vegetarian dishes.

There is variety of different veggie diets, such as:

  • ovo-vegetarian diet (people who practice it, eat eggs but not dairy products);
  • lacto-vegetarian diet (dairy products are included but not eggs);
  • ovo-lacto vegetarian diet (includes both eggs and dairy products);
  • vegan diet (no animal products, eggs, dairy, honey and so on);
  • raw vegan diet (people eat only fresh and uncooked fruit, nuts, seeds, and vegetables, no cooking);
  • semi-vegetarian diet (some people eat poultry and seafood);
  • fruitarianism (permits eating only those fruits, nuts and seeds that can be gathered without harming the plant);
  • macrobiotic diet (people mostly eat whole grains and beans);
  • etc.

Why do people exclude meat? There are many explanations, such as: health motivation (a lot of people don't eat meat because their stomach can't digest animal protein and fat), attempt to stay young for longer time (experts say that vegetarianism helps to do that), ethic reasons (some people are against killing and eating animals or even any living beings), religious motivation (for example, Judaism forbid eating pork), and so on.
