THINK GREEN,THINK VEGETARIAN

By Eric - 6:45 PM



Ever thought of going on a vegetarian diet? I did,settling to be vegetarian wasn't a plan but I was being encouraged and influenced by people who are preferring to eat vegetables rather to meat..I have circle of professional friends who are pure vegan.
It's been 7 years now that I am observing the vegetarian habit and even embracing the rules that everything should be vegetables alone,no milk,dairy cream,no candies,junk foods,and everything that is not healthy foods.
However,deciding to be vegetarian isn't easy...I was struggling so hard and got sick for awhile and controlling oneself with disciplining that I am a vegetarian now.
Why go veggie? a vegetarian diet is healthy because vegetarians consume no animal fat and less cholesterol.Instead,they consume more fiber and more antioxidants.
Aside from that,being vegetarian is a disease free..so it's safe to say that going on a vegetarian diet will keep you out of harm's way.

There are categories that you can select what level of vegetarianism you wish to observe:
1.Lacto Vege: Eats dairy products and plant-based foods but doesn't eat meat,poultry,fish, and eggs.
2.Lacto-Ovo Vege: Eats dairy products (milk,cheese), eggs, and all plant-based foods( vegetables,grains,fruits)
3.Ovo Vege: Eats eggs and plant-based foods, but not dairy products.
4.Vegan or Pure Vegetarian: Eats only plant-based foods.

5.Pesco Vege: Eats fish,eggs and dairy products, but eliminated meats such as: beef,pork,chicken,etc)plant-based foods.

I am practically a Pesco-Vegetarian,and is still on the process of eliminating fish and eggs and dairy products moderately.
Sometimes invitations like occasional parties where foods that you avoided to eat are the usual array being served.
Combatting yourself mentally as to whether you eat or not is a hard to do,there's this fighting of emotions and the mental thing. Oftentimes, to avoid any possible hard feelings towards the host, I reluctantly grace the occasion and taste a little of meat..but I learned from vegetarian friends that its better to tell the host honestly before the occasion came that you are a vegetarian,if the host insist and preparations of vege foods is openly to serve for you alone,then join the party and savor the vege foods that is served intended for you.

Even celebrities have gone promoting of Vegetarianism globally..and among them is Sohie Monk,to name a few.
Australian pop singing sensation and actor Sophie Monk is as compassionate as she is beautiful. That's why she jumped at the opportunity to speak up for animals by shedding her clothes and posing nude in a bed of chili peppers alongside the tagline "Spice Up Your Life—Go Vegetarian" in one of PETA's sexiest vegetarian PSAs to date.

Additional Info to encourage everyone to practice Vegetarianism:


A Southampton University team found that those who were vegetarian by 30 had recorded five IQ points more on average at the age of 10. Men who were vegetarian had an IQ score of 106, compared with 101 for non-vegetarians; while female vegetarians averaged 104, compared with 99 for non-vegetarians. Make sense that people with high IQ tend to rationalize, think and act more than those with a low number, so here is the question: do people become vegetarian because of their high IQ, or because this “high” intelligence make them aware of health issues? What was first, the chicken, or the egg?
