Major myths about vegetarian and vegan diets

Even in the 21st century, this subject arouses great controversy and it is hardly surprising – after all, people have always tended to be afraid of what they do not know. The same applies to vegetarian and vegan diets. Most people do not know what it is all about, so they repeat indigenous false myths about people who do not eat meat and animal products. It is high time we overturned them.
Brief explanation
There is still confusion between the two terms, so it is worth remembering that:
Vegetarian – a person who does not eat meat or fish.
– a person who does not eat meat or fish. Veganin – a person who does not eat any products of animal origin, including eggs, dairy products or animal fats. Vegans also avoid wearing animal clothes and using cosmetics and products tested on animals.
Is man a carnivore?
This is the most frequently repeated myth in the context of vegetarianism/ Norwegianism. Man is not carnivorous, but omnivorous. We can eat plants, fruits, vegetables, as well as processed products such as sweets. Meat is not essential for us to live.
It is often argued that the first people ate exclusively meat. However, this was due to the fact that they did not know the other products and needed highly energetic food. We have a choice and we have shops, so we can easily replace meat with other products.
Vegetarian/ Norwegian cuisine is terribly boring
That is simply not true, and it can only be a result of ignorance. The cuisine of people who do not eat meat is rich, because it must contain products that carnivores usually do not know or do not use. It is above all a wealth of plants, spices and additives that perfectly meet the body’s energy needs and taste buds.
The diagram is almost always the same. When a carnivore first comes to a vegetarian or vegan feast, he is shocked by the variety of dishes to choose from and admits that he had no idea about these cuisines.
Vegetarians/Norwegians are permanently weak and have health problems
And of course everyone suffers from anaemia, which is absolutely nonsense. In order to improve the haemoglobin level in your body, you don’t need to eat blood-stained meat at all, because it would be pure absurd. It is a fact that there are people who feel worse and weaker after switching to a meatless diet, but this is only due to a poor diet balance and a lack of knowledge about products replacing meat.
Suffice it to mention leguminous plants such as chickpeas, beans and peas, which are a very rich source of protein.
A vegetarian/ Norwegian diet is very expensive.
And so, and not. Everything here depends on the preferences of a particular person. After all, a meat diet can also be very expensive if you buy only beef from Kobe. Most of the products on which vegetarian/ Norwegian cuisine is based can be purchased at regular discounts, and the more specialised ones can be purchased from healthy shops or ordered online.
Remember, too, that as you switch to a meatless diet, you start to think more seriously about your health, so you don’t reach for expensive products that are harmful to your body, such as alcohol or sweets. In this way, the overall cost of the kitchen is balanced.
A vegetarian/Norwegian diet is certainly not for everyone and a wide indoctrination does not make sense. Everyone has to make their own decision and think about whether eating meat for ethical reasons disturbs them.
