Health Tip: Going Meatless


Health Tip: Going Meatless

(HealthDay News) -- If you're ready to stop eating meat, it's time to start figuring out your new menu that includes all of the necessary nutrients.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice:

  • Take inventory of the favorite meals in your meat-filled diet, and incorporate any veggie favorites into your new rotation.

  • Include plenty of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in your new meal plan.

  • Add vegetables to your favorite pasta or rice dishes.

  • Get ideas from vegetarian cookbooks or from websites that feature vegetarian recipes.

  • Watch your waistline. Even vegetarians can eat foods that contain too many fats, sugars and empty calories.
