People may have spiritual, moral, humanitarian or health reasons for adopting a vegetarian diet. As vegetarianism becomes more popular throughout the modern world, more and more people realize that the diet can be just as varied and satisfying as any other.
It is thought by many that a meatless diet does not fulfil our protein requirement. This is not correct. Vegetarian foods are nutritious, and a well-balanced vegetarian diet contains all the elements required for a healthy life. It is also common knowledge that a vegetarian diet is advocated in cases of high-stress diseases, such as blood pressure, heart conditions and different type of cancer.
