Going meatless

As the meatless trend grows in popularity, the reasons for individuals going meatless vary. For some, a plant-based diet is a health decision, others choose a meatless diet for religious purposes and some choose vegetarianism over concern for animal welfare. For whatever the reason, vegetarian diets tend to be lower in saturated fat, and the U.S. government recommends eating most of our calories from grains, vegetables and fruits.
