veg out the right way!

November 2008
Seventeen;Nov2008, Vol. 67 Issue 11, p69
The article discusses the health benefits of a vegetable diet and provides meal suggestions for vegetarians. Vegetarians can sometimes overdo it on pasta, since it's easy to cook and tastes good. Add veggies to get some fiber, plus protein to keep you strong. Cheese is a great source of protein, but too much can be fattening. Buy a low-fat version, or use the shredded kind. Vegetarian diets are low in saturated fat and high in vitamins.
