On May 1, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to delivering the latest and greatest in food news, recipes, and products to incorporate into your own healthy lifestyle, responds to an article about the image of vegetarians in America today.
According to an article in the Lansing State Journal, vegetarian options have progressed into the mainstream over the years. There is no longer just one image of a vegetarian, and eating a vegetarian meal isn’t associated with an agenda and an ideology.
While meals of the 1970s and 1980s were very meat-centric, our meals today have shifted as a result of several societal changes, such as the influence of vegetarian chefs and the introduction and popularization of international cuisines centered around vegetables. Many Americans are also concerned about the quality of meat as well as its price in this economy, and so they choose vegetarian options instead.
Yumi Media representative Justin Maas says that these changes in the perception of vegetarians in our society is a good thing. “A person needs to have a balanced diet, and if the meal is always about meat, that’s not going to happen. It’s great that being a vegetarian is no longer associated with one identity, because all different types of people can benefit from a vegetarian lifestyle. And if they’re feeling that they’re not getting enough protein, they can always add a substitute like Quorn to their diets.”
