We’re looking at a few ways of eating that are all the rage these days.
Classic cookbooks like Betty Crocker, Julia Child and The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking are handed down through generations and are still unprecedented references to go by. But our lifestyle has changed and along with it our ways of eating too.I still enjoy a good old fashioned breakfast on occasion…like once a week. A break from granola & yogurt. Except now I spread avocado in place of jam on toast and fresh fruit on homemade waffles. Well it’s a start.
I don’t know what appeals to you but let’s have a look at some of the new age cookbooks as seen on Flipboard.
A new study (ha!) out of California’s Loma Linda University found that vegetarians live longer and were especially less likely to die of heart disease than carnivores. The studies found that the mortality rate of meat eaters was as much as 19 percent higher than that of self-identified vegetarians, and the effect was significantly greater for men than for women. The Loma Linda studies showed an even longer lifespan for pesco-vegetarians, or those who included fish in their diets.
Until the verdict is in, meat eaters would do well to eat ample servings of fruits and veggies, limit intake of red and processed meats, eat fish often, and consume fewer calories overall. Vegetarians should find ways to get plenty of protein, iron, calcium, zinc, B12 and omega-3 fatty acids, all of which are often lacking in meatless dishes.
So, which category do you fall into?
