Leafy Assassins

Vegetarian food isn’t always healthy—especially when fried, covered in oily batter, or drenched in starchy sauces.

Ask before you order: Is the sauce cornflour-thickened or seaweed-based? Avoid the former.

Vegetarian roast duck contains 100 more calories, 12 g more fat, and 555 mg more sodium than an equal portion of real duck, according to the Health Promotion Board. Mock meat lacks nutritional value as it’s highly processed; the high temperature that causes the meaty texture removes any health benefits of the original ingredients. 


A simple rule of thumb: Avoid eating it if you don’t know where it’s from

Go for steamed vegetables, as more nutrients are retained, when you're dining at a vegetarian restaurant (even boiling leaches vitamins from vegetables). For protein, eat tofu, mushrooms, lentils, and beans. Also, vegetarians should consume more B complex vitamins as their diet lacks it.

An incredible volume of knowledge packed into a manageable size book. Read it through and also use it as a handbook or guide. The material is heavily based on science, but presented in such a way as to function as a checklist. This book is downright fascinating, too. If you desire a longer, healthier life, this book would be a good starting point
