5 Items that will Make for a Delicious Vegetarian Lunch
Salads and sadness. That’s the common perception of Vegetarian meals. The average person is queasy around quinoa and wilts at the sight of kale. But despite this sometimes negative reputation a vegetarian diet has been shown to keep weight down, prevent disease, and help you live a longer and more energetic life. In a 12-year Oxford study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers found that vegetarians outlive meat eaters by many years. One vegetarian culture in Okinawa, Japan, residents have diets rich in vegetables, soy, and legumes; this diet has had huge benefits for the island’s population. While the average life expectancy in the United States is 78.8 years, it’s 84 years old in Japan – and five times as many people from Okinawa live to be 100 years as their peers in the rest of the country.
