A Vegetarian diet, in the most general sense, eliminates all meat sources. Vegetarians do not eat pork, beef, lamb, poultry, fish or any flesh from animals that underwent slaughter. The bulk of this diet consists mostly of food from plant sources like fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, pulses, nuts, grains and can include dairy products and eggs.
Throughout the years, research about the connection of a person’s diet and the risk of certain diseases have been plentiful. In fact, around 70% of degenerative diseases are linked to the food that we eat every day. To combat these, experts have recommended healthy diets such as vegetarianism.

A vegetarian diet should be well-planned, balanced, varied and well-understood so that it provides the body with the adequate amount of nutrients. On the other hand, a poorly planned vegetarian diet can lead to certain nutrient deficiencies.
