Food is a personal choice for everyone becoming a Vegetarian or Non- Vegetarian should be one’s own choice but we are forced to believe that we need eggs/ chicken, meat, etc. to get protein. We have been conditioned that only Non-veg will provide protein and nutrition to us. Every Non- Vegetarian has thought about quitting Non-veg at least once in their life because they also want to experience the life of being Vegetarian but this thought that only Non-veg keeps you fit, strong and healthy could not allow them to do so. Non-Vegetarians have been taught that consuming eggs, meat, chicken, fish, etc. will improve their cholesterol and heart rate. Now it’s time to get this Myth over that only Non-Vegetarians are taking a healthy and nutritious diet it’s time to prove that Vegetarians are also equally healthy and fit. People who are eating leafy, green vegetables are also strong and healthy. Not only Non-veg but also veg provides proteins, nutrition, and vitamins. Vegetarians are also living a great healthy, wealthy successful life. Vegans are also gaining name, fame, health and wealth in life as Non-vegans. It’s nothing just a Myth that only eggs, fish, chicken, meat provides protein and nutrition to human body all plant-based foods like fruits and vegetable also provides vitamins, proteins, minerals, fiber, etc. There are many Renowned Athletes who need to be fit, fine, strong and healthy in their work and they are Vegetarians.
