Although it is true that diet trends come and go, overall, they are usually beneficial, regardless of whether they are in the spotlight or not. For vegetarians, the newest trend is replacing eggs in your diet with flax seed. This also aligns with those looking to live their lives in a sustainable and natural way. One of the good things about flax seeds is that they are readily available. They provide great medicinal and nutritional benefits and are classified by nutritionists as super-food.
- To replace an egg, mix a tablespoon of flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of water in a bowl.
- You have to let the mixture sit for five minutes and then it will be ready to replace your eggs in any recipe you want.
- Flax seeds are high in their Omega 3 fatty acids and they also are rich in fiber so they’re great for the digestive system as well as cardiovascular health.
“It is interesting to know that the vegetarian diet is not only about nutrition, it is also related to an attitude and a lifestyle that rejects other ways of using animals to produce consumer goods or for human entertainment. That is why it is the people who follow this type of diet, are governed by ecological and naturopathic principles.”
