. . .  for a healthy and tasty food

It’s very difficult today to navigate between the many different and often opposites theories about what to eat in order to maintain and to improve our health. There is a continuos bombarding of information everywhere proposing the most different types of diet and promising miracoulous and quickly results. Then, how to choose?

Furthermore, following the latest food style could be very risky, especially if you decide to become vegetarian or vegan without the appropriate knowledge or without an expert guide like a professional nutritionist.

In this context, mangiare vegetariano is a project to help people interested in vegetarian and/or vegan meals. It wants to offer a friendly open space for questions and answers in order to avoid eventual problems due to nutritional deficiencies.

Indeed, if properly planned and balanced, a vegetarian or vegan diet can not only be safe and healthy, but it can also prevent some chronic and degenerative diseases typical of our modern society.

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the largest organization in the world made up of about 40,000 human nutrition experts, vegetarian diets tend to have a reduced content of saturated fats and cholesterol, and a higher amounts of fiber, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, folate, carotenoids, flavonoids and other phytocompounds.

These diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes. Vegetarians and vegans are at reduced risk of certain health conditions, including ischemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, certain types of cancer, and obesity. While some vegetarian diets may be low in certain nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin B-12, this can be remedied by appropriate planning.” (ADA, 2016)
