Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Michael Thurmond Body Makeover - Fast Ways to Prepare Healthy Meals

By James Kim

When people read about the Michael Thurman diet, they are surprised by the amount of food that they are allowed to eat on the meal plan. This leads to people asking the question, "When am I going to have time to prepare and cook all this food?" This article will show you how to cook food and make your life easier.

Go shopping for the whole week and buy everything that you need all at once. That way you won't have to go back and forth to the grocery store. Make sure that you plan out your meals ahead of time and bring your grocery list with you.

Learn to prepare food ahead of time. Start the meal-planning process on Sunday and buy the majority of your groceries ahead of time. Make sure to have your grocery list prepares so that you can efficiently pick up all your items without having to go back to the store.

Cook large amounts of food, it takes the same amount of effort to cook a large batch of vegetables as it does to cook a couple pieces of corn. Prepare your cooking days during times when you know you won't be busy. If you are already planning meals for your family, take this time to cook additional food for your own diet. Just like a cooking line, you can "prep" your food by cutting, mincing and sauteing vegetables ahead of time. Once cooked or cut, just simply place in a container until you're ready to eat them. The same goes for fruit, just cut up or slice the fruit and grab it out of the refrigerator when you want to eat.

Learn to cook chicken and fish in large quantities. Marinate a large amount of chicken breast and rill on a barbecue. Cooking a large quantity of meat is a great way to have meat for all of your meals without having to constantly wash frying pans. Rice is another staple on the Michael Thurman diet. Cook a large amount of Japanese sticky rice as it tends to retain its moisture for a long time. Store all contents for later use. These are just a few ways that you will save time and money on the Michael Thurman makeover.
