Eating vegetarian one day a week can bring health benefits. According to Monique Ryan on eatright.org, "eating no meat one day a week is not only about subtracting from your diet, but adding to it" (Ryan, 2016). What she means by this is that while you are eliminating your meat consumption one day a week, you can substitute that meat by consuming more vegetables, whole grains, beans, and lentils. 

Whole-wheat bread, whole-grain pasta, brown rice, etc. can help to prevent heart disease, certain cancers, and diabetes. Adding lentils or beans can also contribute to your protein intake. Vegetables such as kale, collards, and broccoli can also be good sources of calcium (Ryan, 2016).

Health Benefits of Reducing/Eliminating Meat Consumption

Eliminating or even reducing meat consumption can bring many health benefits to one's health. Meat products tend to be high in fat, especially saturated fat and cholesterol, so plant-based foods are a healthier option. In fact, plant-based foods are cholesterol-free, and they help to "reduce risks of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney stones, gallstones and osteoporosis" (

Eat Real Food, Not Junk Food

Being vegetarian does not necessarily mean that that person practices healthy eating habits. According to healthiergeneration.org, "we consume a lot of calories at home. Unfortunately, home has become the place for fast food and snack food convenience" (2016). Therefore, we need to start making real food easy. We can do this by avoiding fast food restaurants and stopping by the grocery store instead. If meals are planned for the week, it may be easier to resist consuming fast food, as well as junk food.
