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.

Side Step Nutrition Scams and Frauds; Eat Broccoli

By Isaac Robert Toussie

People have said that it is of course important to watch out for food scams, as fraud could exist on food labels. I, Isaac Toussie, pardon the thought, think that today, when so many people are concerned about issues like housing and work place discrimination, fashion, entertainment, real estate, mortgages, vacations and the like, issues like food quality and food awareness may become unnecessarily overshadowed. My (Isaac Toussie) opinion is that Broccoli is an excellent nutritional resource.

A cruciferous vegetable that originally came from southern Europe, in the regions by the Mediterranean Sea, broccoli can be traced back to ancient Rome, where it was developed from wild broccoli that resembled collard greens. The name "broccoli" comes from the Latin word brachium, or branch. Broccoli is a very popular vegetable and it is a staple of healthy diets around the world, especially in the United States. It is often called a super-food because scientific research continues to discover nutritional benefit after nutritional benefit. First, broccoli contains one of the highest concentrations of health promoting sulfur compounds like sulforaphane and isothiocyanates, increasing the livers power to make enzymes that neutralize potentially toxic substances in the body. Broccoli is also rich in the powerful phytonutrient antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which are carotenoids concentrated in the lens of our eyes. Furthermore, broccoli provides Vitamins A and C along with folic acid for a healthy heart. Broccoli that is dark green contains more chlorophyll, beta-carotene, and Vitamin C, while those with more purplish heads contain more flavanoids.

Being from the cruciferous family of vegetables places broccoli among the likes of cauliflower, kale, collard greens, cabbages, mustard greens, and Brussels Sprouts. Some of the more easily available varieties of broccoli include green broccoli, broccolini, broccoflower, broccoli raab, and broccoli sprouts.

I, Isaac Toussie, have my own favorite, which is green broccoli. Green broccoli, also known as sprouting broccoli but called Italian Green or Calabrese Broccoli (named after the famous geographical area of Italy where its reputed to have been first grown ) as well, is the most popular kind of broccoli and the most commonly seen in supermarkets today. Its light green stalks are topped with clusters of dark green, often purplish florets. The word broccolini is an Italian diminutive for baby broccoli, but its actually a cross between green broccoli and kale, and is the best kind of broccoli to serve raw. Broccoflower is a cross between broccoli and cauliflower, being more like cauliflower than broccoli. Broccoli raab is intensely flavorful, and has a pleasant though slightly bitter taste. It has more leaves and a longer stem than common green broccoli, and though its stem is tender and needs no peeling the bottom last inch or so should be discarded because it can be rather wood-like and tough. Otherwise, broccoli raab is just similar enough to regular broccoli to serve as a substitute, usually. Broccoli sprouts are actual sprouts from broccoli seeds, and are popular due to their high volume of healthy phytonutrients.
