Thinking of Becoming Vegetarian? Here’s How Your Body Can Benefit!

There is a lot of interest in meat-free diets these days, with everyone who “goes vegetarian” having their reasons for doing so. The journey from carnivore to herbivore may not be the easiest for some people, but the endeavor can be more than a little worthwhile, especially when care is taken to replace vital proteins and other nutrients with fresh fruits and vegetables. Obvious warning: going vegetarian does nothing for your health if your diet is filled with sugar and processed foods loaded with carbs and sodium.
