Vegetarian Diets

Vegetarian diets usually exclude meat, chicken and fish. Some vegetarians choose to eat eggs and dairy products, while some exclude these foods too. Like any other style of eating, the nutrients you take in depend upon the food choices you make. It is important to know how to replace meat with nutritious alternatives like soy, legumes, nuts and seeds.
