Healthy Eating for Vegetarians


Healthy Eating for Vegetarians

In 2009, only one percent of the US population reported eating vegetarian or vegan.  That number has increased to approximately five percent in 2014.  So why is this rate increasing?  The reasons are varied but include a mix of various factors including improved health, concerns about commercial farming and animal treatment.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has put together a handout on “Healthy Eating Tips for Vegetarians.  Click http://www.eatright.org/~/media/eatright%20files/nationalnutritionmonth/handoutsandtipsheets/nutritiontipsheets/healthyeatingtipsforvegetarians.ashx
 to read this handout.
