Yumi Media Says the Road to Vegetarianism is “Hard but Worth it”
Date:3/4/2013

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 04, 2013

On March 4, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to food news, recipes, and products for a healthy lifestyle, issues a response to a recent article in the Courier-Journal, encouraging dieters to convert gradually to vegetarianism.

According to the Courier-Journal, people looking to convert to vegetarianism or who just want to eat healthier can take the gradual road to vegetarianism.

“You can make a gradual transition by choosing to go meatless one or two days a week,” said Michelle Eckhart, a Louisville dietitian and employee wellness manager for KentuckyOne Health. She suggests starting with friendly, familiar recipes “such as pasta marinara and beans and rice,” to make the switch less daunting.

“It doesn’t have to be anything crazy like ‘Oh, I’m going to start eating tofu five nights a week,’ right off the bat,” she says.

The article claims that one of the advantages of vegetarianism is that meatless diets – provided they focus on healthy, whole foods rather than processed foods – “tend to be naturally low in saturated and trans fats.”

Eckhart, a vegetarian for almost two decades, emphasizes the economic advantages of converting to vegetarianism. “I can feed my family on a can of beans, a bunch of vegetables and some rice and save however much four chicken breasts cost,” said Eckhart.

“The road to healthy eating is long and arduous,” says Justin Maas, Yumi Media representative. “To flip a switch and go completely meatless can seem impossible to most people accustomed to such a diet. If you think of the benefits of eating such foods like Quorn, going meatless doesn’t seem bad at all, since they provide a healthy, convenient substitute that allows you to convert almost any meat-heavy recipe into a vegetarian dish.”

Maas finds most Quorn complaints to be without merit and thinks people who want to eat healthy should look at the big picture when it comes to their health. “I’ve been eating meatless for a long time. It was hard but worth it.”
