The Vegetarian Way is the vegetarian bible: an authoritative, comprehensive, single source reference book for the growing number of people who are embracing a vegetarian diet, as well as for the more than 12 million Americans who are already committed vegetarians. Inside you'll find the good news and compelling reasons for being a vegetarian, from proper weight maintenance to prevention of chronic diseases; complete up to the minute scientific findings on vegetarian nutrition, including ways to be sure you're meeting requirements for protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B(subscript 12), and other nutrients; a nine step plan for becoming vegetarian; menus for vegetarians with special needs, such as pregnant women, the elderly, diabetics, and athletes; practical advice for living a vegetarian life, from traveling and eating out to packing school lunches, socializing, and managing a mixed diet household; and more than fifty delicious recipes. The Vegetarian Way will appeal not only to vegetarians, but also to parents who want their families to eat a vegetarian diet, and to countless others who want to cut down on the amount of animal products they eat.
