Simple Vegetarian Recipes

 

WHO reports that eating large amounts of preserved meat and red meat can increase cancer risk. Experts say that this could be due to nitrites, which are added to many preserved meats to maintain color and to prevent contamination with bacteria. Nitrites can be converted in the stomach to carcinogenic nitrosamines, which may increase the risk of stomach cancer. Some meat preserved through salt or certain acids may also cause cancer, especially increased risk of stomach, nasopharyngeal and throat cancer.

 

Therefore, what is the solution? The answer is vegetarian diets. Diets high in vegetables and fruits that contain vitamin C and phytochemicals retard the transformation of nitrites to nitrosamines. However, many people will then have this question - Are there nutrients that are only existent in animal products and not plant food or vegetarian foods? All the nutrients needed to support and enhance our immune functions to promote optimal health are readily found in plant foods, meals rich in vegetable and fruit.

 

In addition to that, many healthy vegetarian meals contain high dietary fiber. Fiber helps to reduce the risk for cancers of the digestive system. By regulating bodily processes, dietary fiber also aids in weight management. Most importantly, increasing intake of vegetables and fruits with high fiber helps in regulate blood glucose levels. High fiber diets are highly recommended for people suffering from Diabetes. Examples of good sources of fiber are psyllium husk, soy and other beans, whole grains as well as fruits like banana and apple.
