Vegan, Lacto-Vegetarian & Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian Nutrition

All raw and all vegetarian diets have been fads pushed by many people. One Canadian back in the 70’s insisted on all raw because it prevented cancer. He died of prostate cancer and, yes, monkeys do get cancer. Indeed even cacti get cancer!

Ellen G. White, founder of Seventh Day Adventism, and a phenomenal prophet, emphasized a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet. BUT she warned that when you are ill, you need meat!

In general, eggs and milk products provide adequate quality protein. A VEGETABLE – FRUIT – NUT – SEED diet does not provide any taurine, one of the essential amino acids, and a majority of adults cannot produce taurine!!

I have tested the blood of a couple of dozen vegans and every one of them is deficient in one or more essential amino acids. In addition, there is NO vitamin B 12 in the vegetable kingdom. I have seen some seriously deficient B 12 in vegans – and that can ruin your brain and nervous system. On the other hand, eggs and milk products provide all essential amino acids and B 12!

So, if you choose not to eat any meat, fish, or fowl, you NEED AT LEAST Whey Protein Isolate.

If you choose this Lacto-vegetarian diet, then be careful of the quality of your vegetarian components. SUGAR is NOT a vegetable!! Nor is Un-Equal, Nor Splenda, etc. And trans-fats are not real food. Monosodium Glutamate, MSG, is not a food! Pop is not a food. Margarine is not a food. Chips and snack foods are not real food.

Ideal Lacto-Vegetarian Nutrition:

Unlimited veggies, nuts, seeds and fresh fruits
2 scoops daily of Whey Protein Isolate
Include a serving of beans or legumes daily – the least gas-producing are chickpeas, green peas, lima beans and roasted peanuts or Natural peanut butter
Brown rice, old fashioned oatmeal, barley, quinoa, buckwheat
Be careful of wheat and avoid virtually ALL store-bought bread. Most is plain JUNK.
There is No fast food restaurant food worth considering
REAL fast food is a piece of fruit and some pecans, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, etc
You need omega-3’s and the best source (other than Alaska salmon) is flax seed or chia

Now, of course, if you want an even better diet, add 2 organic Omega-3 enriched eggs daily!
