Dispelling the Myths of Vegetarianism

Myth 2: Vegetarians are lacking vitamins and nutrients.

A well-planned vegetarian diet can have all the necessary nutrients. In fact, vegetarians can actually get more of what they need because they tend to eat a more varied diet than non-vegetarians. They are also more inclined to watch and keep track of what they eat. There is one very important rule to keep in mind—in order to meet the recommended daily allowances of vitamins and nutrients, vegetarians (like any person) can’t let junk food or snacks take over their diet.
