It’s Saturday and each week we read some of the typically interesting and sometimes even wild e-mails we receive from our readers around the world. Our first e-mail posed the question what is a Pollotarian.
According to what we’ve learned this afternoon:
A Pollotarian is defined as somebody who doesn’t eat red meat (think pork/beef.) A pollotarian in fact eats poultry as one would — however this may all obe considered a step to becoming an eventual vegetarian.
According to the Mayo Clinic, these are just some of the benefits of such a diet and lifestyle.
A plant-based diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, legumes and nuts, is rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. And people who don’t eat meat — vegetarians — generally eat fewer calories and less fat, weigh less, and have a lower risk of heart disease than nonvegetarians do.
