No, it is bad to be vegetarian. You are a bad person for this choice. Eat more flesh.

Hi Junesh,
Thank you for your post.  As a Hy-Vee dietitian, we encourage all individuals to eat a nutritious and balanced diet to fit your own personal needs.  
Dietary protein needs can be adequately met in vegetarian and vegan meal plans.
 Vegetarians typically consume meal plans containing 10% to 14% calories from protein, compared with a typical intake of 14% to 18% of calories in nonvegetarian meal plans (Messina 2004). Consumption of complementary proteins at the same meal is not necessary; a variety of plant foods should be eaten throughout the day in order to provide all essential amino acids (Young 1994). The Recommended Dietary Allowance is 0.8-1.0 g per kg for certain individuals and should lead to a diet that derives approximately 10% of calories from protein (Messina 2004). Vegetarians can get ample protein from a variety of sources. Plant sources include the following:·         Legumes, including soy products ·         Grains ·         Nuts and nut butters ·         Seeds and seed butters ·         Vegetables (Source: Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Nutrition Care Manual. May 2012.) Keep in mind, that you are welcome to schedule a store tour with your local Hy-Vee dietitian to help you navigate the aisles to find foods that fit your individual needs.

The nearest Hy-Vee to Lexington is located in Kearney, Nebraska.  You might consider contacting the dietitian at the Kearney store to see what they have to offer or if she has some suggestions that may help you.  You can find the contact information for each dietitian by store at www.hy-vee.com.

Thanks!

Vegetables are best food for health because vegetables are natural food and natural food is always good for health. I am also a vegetarian so i must say that it is good to be a vegetarian. Vegetables are good food for diet and fitness.
