Following an article about whether or not becoming vegetarian is a healthy choice, Yumi Media offers their comments.

On January 18, 2013, Yumi Media commented on a Hindustan Times article by Dr. Anjali Mukerjee, regarding the question, is becoming a vegetarian healthy?

According to the Hindustan Times article, “A non-vegetarian diet, high in animal protein, saturated fat and refined sugar, is known to be associated with most cancers and degenerative diseases like arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes. So, should we switch to vegetarianism?”

The article states that even though there are many benefits in a vegetarian diet, it is also a very complicated diet to follow. The article mentions that being a vegetarian takes full commitment, and you must be able to replace the nutrients removed from your diet after you have eliminated meat.

According to the article, “People following vegetarian diets can get all the required nutrients if they eat a wide variety of foods to meet their nutritional needs.” Eggs, breads, wheat grass, mushrooms, greens, and nuts are all foods that give you a variety of the needed nutrients a vegetarian diet needs, said the article. The article stated that, “The confusion of switching to vegetarianism can be cleared only by understanding the principles of healthy eating.”

Yumi Media knows how important it is, and how difficult it can be to replace all the needed nutrients when going meat-free. “Vegetarian diets have great health benefits, but only if you follow the diet correctly and spend the extra effort to get all the nutrients a meat diet would give you,” says Yumi Media representative Takara Licausi. “I recommend trying Quorn vegetarian recipes when trying to get those needed nutrients, since I have never heard of any Quorn complaints."
