Seventh-day Adventists (SDAs) are known for their traditional beliefs and practices, such as their adherence to a vegetarian lifestyle.
The diet of choice is the lacto-ovo vegetarian diet, which promotes the ample use of whole-grains, vegetables, and fruits. Additionally, the SDA vegetarian diet recommends some legumes, nuts, and low-fat diary products in moderation.
Examples of recommended dairy products:
would be milk, yogurt, light cheeses,
with eggs used sparingly.
in my opinion i do believe that dairy participates in many health related issues
i find it to be very clogging and unnecessary:
the human body does not have the enzyme to break down cow's milk
we have the enzyme to break down mother's milk......I WONDER WHY
options i recommend for SDA's & NON SDA's rice/soy/almond milk
the purest or least processed cheeses, such as, feta, moz, or other white cheeses
yogurt is great for the gut, healthy bacteria... particularly with no ADDED SUGAR
and in the egg department: I AM A FAN....high sodium WHATEVER
the "ph miracle" talks a whole lotta smack about eggs and bacteria.....COOL IT
Live in a healthy manner, with much exercise, sunshine, and rest in his daily life.
The Total Plant Food Guide recommends two to three servings of low-fat dairy fortified alternatives, like sipplements, each day to compensate for the absence of dairy products.
Sometimes vegetables and certain foods have a part of the recommended calcium and B12, but the amount is generally not enough to ensure a healthy diet.
Lacto-ovo vegetarians should give special attention to their intake of protein, iron, and zinc.
U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for vegetarians
suggests 11-20 servings daily from
breads, cereals, pasta, rice, fruits, and vegetables.
have been reading about Kellogg and Post
both searching to make them selves healthier
in doing so came across the benefits of whole grains
since then we have had great cereal options!
CHEERS TO THE CEREAL KINGS
that each took a page form the SDA's book
in the late 1800 early 1900s
The National Institute for Health reports that Adventists are less at risk for heart disease, some types of cancers, strokes, and diabetes. Additionally, life expectancies for SDAs are some of the highest in formally studied cultures in the world, with the men living an average of 78.5 years and women living 82.3 years.
with the exception of religion ....sounds pretty good to me
they dont eat meat
for those that do they are very lean meats in moderation
