    Great resources, thanks! I just want to add that it is important to understand that not all vegetarians eat all the right foods all the time. One has to learn how to eat as a vegetarian in order to get all vitamins and minerals. Iron and B12, for example, can become an issue for vegans.

    A vegetarian diet is not necessarily a detox diet, but does generally eliminate many, most, or all animal products. Raw spinach, although high in calcium, contains an acid that blocks its absorption so it is one vegetable that should be eaten cooked, if calcium consumption is the goal.

    As any other, a vegetarian diet can be an extremely healthy one, but if it does not include all the right foods (iron, B12 rich) or includes not so right foods (muffins, white breads, rice, pasta, and too much juice), it may not be any healthier than a non-vegetarian diet.

    I enjoyed reading your article, and as a certified holistic nutritionist, I just had to say...

    Hey Joanna,

    I totally agree with you. I know vegetarians who are obese! Also, raw food diets are not good for those with Crohns, Collitis or other digestive disorders. It's also very important to get your protein from vegan, vegetarian and raw food diets, so either from nuts, chick peas, lentils, tofu, or other soy-based products (which not everyone can eat either because of the estrogen). Eating raw or vegan is good from time to time just to clean up your system. I personally could not eat raw food daily and once a month around that time I crave my meat!
