A flexitarian diet is about eating a balanced meal with ingredients that are sourced locally and grown naturally. When following this diet include multi-colored fruits and vegetables to ensure all different phytonutrients required to maintain proper health are received.
This diet is suitable for meat eaters as the idea is to get started on this dietary lifestyle in a gradual manner by adding more vegetarian options in their daily diet.
The idea also is to choose wisely. Instead of opting for packaged meat produce, choose free range meat and organic meat so you can lessen the impact of any unintentional virus transfer.
