What do these people eat?
Vegans – people do not eat meat, fish or dairy.
Vegetarian – people do not eat meat or fish.
Macrobiotics – people tend to eat natural food and balance their foods using the principle of yinyang. They tend not to eat processed foods, sugar, coffee etc. They eat mainly grains, beans, vegetables and fruit – and a little fish.
In Thailand brown rice is a good indication of healthy food but in restaurants it is rare to find brown rice. Buying brown rice is quite easy as main supermarkets have it, but it is more difficult to buy organic brown rice.
A vegetarian diet can be more healthy but not eating meat or fish only marginally improves your health. Of course a vegetarian diet can embrace healthier eating such as not eating processed foods.
It is healthier to eat organic food as organic food has not been sprayed with chemicals or pesticides. It is not known how much these chemicals affect the foods but logic tells us that foods without pesticides are less likely to be harmful.
If we write about restaurants, can we write (with tags) suitable for macrobiotics, vegans or vegetarians and whether food is organic?
