Transition To A Vegetarian Diet

Transition To A Vegetarian Diet

To go on a vegetarian diet you have to take into account certain nutritional aspects. If it is not done correctly we can fall into malnutrition, loss of energy and even some other quite severe symptoms.

I suggest a gradual transition to my patients. There is no need to stop eating meat and fish at once. Start by including one or two vegetarian meals a week, continue with three and so on. The first thing to eliminate would be the red meat and after a couple of weeks without eating it, it begins to reduce the intake of chicken and fish equally progressively.

To become a vegetarian, it is not enough to stop eating meat products and fish.

Another very important thing is to do a cleaning of the pantry and provide you with the correct ingredients, those that will give you the necessary nutrients to develop your daily activity. Your new allies will be cereals, legumes, nuts, seeds, and eggs.

Proteins The old belief is that if we don't eat meat or fish, we won't eat protein, which is essential to sustain a nutritious diet. But nothing is further from the truth, there are plenty of completely suitable vegetarian options. The complete vegetarian proteins are eggs, dairy products, soy (tofu, tempeh), quinoa or amaranth. But beans, peas or lentils are also good options, just combine them during the day to get all the necessary essential amino acids.

Iron is the mineral that we should worry about. It is responsible for transporting oxygen in our red blood cells and transporting it to our organs. Not having enough iron can cause fatigue, weakness, and dizziness. Meat is a good source of iron, but it can also be found in cereals, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, and green leaves. Remember that vitamin C helps with iron absorption so combine a high iron ingredient with a source of vitamin C.
Vegetarians, especially vegans, may have difficulty eating vitamin B12. Opt for eggs, nori seaweed, dairy products, fortified foods, supplements or yeast extract. B12 deficiency can cause anemia, such as iron deficiency, and neurological disorders.

Calcium is another mineral that can be neglected when going on a vegetarian diet. Green leaves, broccoli, almonds, dairy products, and fortified foods are good sources of calcium.

Always read product labels, additives or other ingredients that come from animals are often incorporated. Mousses, jellies, sauces, yogurts, and cheeses usually carry jello or other animal fats. Search for the official vegetarian logo.

Now that you know all these facts, plan your meals to cover all nutritional needs and don't forget the most important ingredients, love, and care.
