So I sometimes answer question over on Quora.com And today I answered this one so I thought I would just pop my answer over here for the folks who follow this blog. Here it is:
Q: Is it healthier to be a vegan, vegetarian, or have a little bit of organic meat in your vegetarian diet?
I think it depends on your preference and enJOYment of food. If you focus on getting nutrients into the body, enJOYing your food, sourcing high quality food products that are natural and organic and cultivated responsibly and with the environment in mind, you can develop a daily diet that resonates with YOU! 🙂 I always say to people to listen to their bodies. The body always knows what is for its highest good and every body is different 🙂 Of course adding in lots of plant based and natural foods is the best.
But the key to any healthy daily diet working is that it must be enJOYable and life giving. It must make you smile both inside the tummy and on your lips while you are enJOYing eating it. Food has an energy and the more life force (closest to its nature and source) the better.
And personally, I recommend supplementation to fill in the gaps. In my opinion, it is nearly impossible to get the required nutrients from food alone. We live in a toxic world filled with pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, depleted soils, unsafe food handling, and the list goes on.
I hope you found this helpful and perhaps it wasn’t what you were looking for but I enJOYed sharing with you today. 🙂 And if you would like further educational articles feel free to visit my blog at MaggiesVitamins
