The connection between diet and health has been well established and a plant-based diet can help with weight-control, prevent cardiovascular disease and combat hypertension, diabetes, obesity and many types of cancer.  Jeanne has a wealth of homestyle recipes that are perfect for the way healthy-conscious Americans are eating today and states, "I believe that eating vegetarian foods can both enhance dining enjoyment and improve our health.  After all it only makes sense that healthy foods should give us contentment and pleasure."

 

Being vegetarian can mean different things to different people.  Vegetarian diets range from one that includes eating fish to one that eliminates dairy and most desserts.  The reasons why people choose to become full-time or part-time vegetarians also vary.  Some choose to focus on improving their health while others are concerned with animal welfare issues.

Four kinds of vegetarianism are:

  • Semi- and demi-vegetarianism where adherents eat fish as well as broad-based plant foods.
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarianism adherents do not eat red meat, poultry, fish or seafood.  Instead, their diet consists of broad-based plant foods, milk, cheese, yogurt and eggs.
  • Lacto-vegetarianism adherents also eat broad-based plant foods, milk, cheese and yogurt; however, they do not consume eggs.
  • Vegan-vegetariansm are strict vegetarians who eat broad-based plant foods but exclude all dairy products and eggs from their diet.  Essentially, all commercial snack foods, pastries and desserts are restricted.


When lowfat vegetarian diets are created in accordance with the Recommended Daily Allowance for protein and vitamins, they offer great health benefits.  They can be preventative measures against high cholesterol and heart disease as well as a method to shed unwanted pounds.

While the American Heart Association and other health organizations recommend that only 30 percent of our daily calories come from fat, that isn't always enough to prevent health risks such as heart disease and some types of cancer. An ultra low-fat diet is essentially, a low-fat vegetarian diet.

The health benefits of a low-fat vegetarian diet are significant.  Research indicates that abstaining from animal products is in the best interest of the human body.  A 1993 Position Paper of the American Dietetic Association states:

A considerable body of scientific data suggests positive relationships between vegetarian diets and risk reduction for several chronic degenerative diseases and conditions, including obesity, coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and some types of cancer.   It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that vegetarian diets are healthful and nutritionally adequate when appropriately planned.

By reducing the amount of fat and cholesterol in your diet you can reduce the lipids that circulate in your bloodstream, thus reducing the buildup of arterial plaques and decreasing your risk of heart attack or stroke.  

A vegetarian diet offers an endless variety of fresh, flavorful foods.  By removing fat from meals, you begin to taste the food itself.  Recipes from Vegetarian Cooking for Healthy Living and Vegetarian Homestyle Cooking are proof that low-fat vegetarian food is delicious.

"Engaging, user-friendly, informative and insightful!  Menu plans help put it all into perspective, simplifying the process for those who might think vegetarianism is too difficult a lifestyle to follow."
