Course overview

True vegetarians do not eat meat or fish, but many will eat animal produce such as eggs, milk and cheese. Vegans do not eat animal produce at all and so their diet consists entirely of foods of plant origin. All can provide a basis for a healthy life – if properly managed. Eating the vegetarian way clearly requires skill and it needs to be done properly if dietary balance is to be achieved. But once the skills are mastered and new arts in menu planning acquired, the diet is varied, nourishing and easy to manage.
