I do however, find it fascinating that people are so concerned about vegetarian and vegan diets and if they are getting the nutrients that are needed for a healthy diet. I guarantee that my diet and my friend’s diets who are vegetarian/vegan are by far better (nutritionally) than my friends who eat meat.

When someone is vegetarian/vegan, they tend to be more conscious of what they are eating. And I know that this isn’t always the case, especially with all of the processed food that can be found for vegetarians and vegans.

Basically, you hear a lot of, “are you getting enough protein??” when maybe we should be asking those who eat meat, “are you eating enough fruits and vegetables??”.
