(BPRW) The Raw Truth about Vegetarianism
One way the black community has been introduced to vegetarianism is by black entertainers and public figures endorsing this lifestyle. Rastafarian immigrants from the Caribbean have also made vegetarianism mainstream by running meat-free food stores and restaurants in black neighborhoods. Some patrons discover for the first time that cholesterol-free soy and tofu products can be cooked to taste the same as any kind of meat-based product, and can be a dairy substitute for the lactose-intolerant.
There are different levels of vegetarianism. The most extreme are vegans, who avoid eating any animal products, including those from eggs and milk. More flexible vegetarians, who allow for egg and dairy products, are known as ovolactovegetarians. Still, others who don’t define themselves as pure vegetarians will eat seafood and poultry but avoid the “red” meat of mammals, which is higher in saturated fat. People switching to a vegetarian or predominantly vegetarian diet can benefit by consulting a physician and reading nutrition books to learn how to maintain necessary nutrients in their diets.
So, the next time you feel hungry, consider the many choices that will help YOU to live well, feel good and enjoy foods that taste good!
