rash because of vegetarianism???
Posted by broccolina at 07/30/2009
a friend of mine changed for being vegetarian
some years ago. after being that for a while he broke out in a rash. red spots started to cover his body everywhere!
first he thought he was alergic to his new bought cats, but when he didn`t know what to do anymore, he tried to eat meat again-and the rash disappeared for good.
desperately wanting to be vegetarian he tried again now.And again the rash shoed up on his arms!
what could the reason be? is there something missing in his diet? unfortunately he doesn`t trust doctors and doesn`t want to take bloodsamples so it is hard to check. but does anybody know what to do???
thanks so much for help!
Beans, whole grains, soy products, oatmeal, brown rice, broccoli, peas, nuts, seeds, even one potato provides an adult with enough protein for the day.
I always tell people who either are interested in going veggie or tried it and failed that you really have to eat healthy. Eat a balanced diet. Going veggie doesn't mean a diet of iceberg lettuce and rice cakes. It's one of those myths among non-veggies that we have problems getting protein when in fact it's so easy.
