Vegetarian Organic Life: “It is recommended that women eat a minimum of five servings of fruit and vegetables every day. The American Cancer Society urges men to eat nine servings of fruits and veggies a day. I don’t think that goes far enough, though. All adults and adolescents should eat a minimum of nine servings of fruits and veggies per day and children a minimum of five. In other words, produce should constitute the bulk of any diet whether vegetarian or not… Most of us react with shock at the prospect of eating so many servings of fruits and vegetables.” The writer then proceeded to show how easy it is to reach that target by knowing how to count.
I have yet to take the step of converting to vegetarianism, something that some yoga practitioners see as a natural consequences of their beliefs. But I have been trying to change my eating habits, sharply cut back on my consumption of red meats, and generally improve my diet. Today I chanced across this website and newsletter with good references. Amira Elgan gave some sensible advice so I will check it out in more depth. By the way, the newsletter is free.
I should note that an issue of the newsletter have not appeared since July last year. Amira is a very busy lady. But there is plenty of information and advice to process.
