Are you a vegetarian? This question must have been a part of each and every conversation you have ever had. Well! Being a vegetarian is simple but the non-sensical questions and fuss people make about it makes the situation difficult. Choosing green vegetables over meat will not make your energy levels go low neither will it make you undernourished. It's high time people accept the fact that a vegetarian is not sacrificing something to be a vegetarian, it's a personal choice.

Here are a few myths and misconceptions that vegetarians constantly have to deal with. Lets bebunk these:

1. You will always stay slim

People need to understand that being a vegetarian doesn't mean that you always have to be slim and fit. You have your own stock of junk, ranging from chips, nachos, pizza, pasta and a lot more.

2. You will never experience the pleasure of being a meat lover

It's a personal choice to eat vegetarian food. You have to constantly tell people that you aren't sacrificing your food because of any ritual or superstition. You love being a vegetarian by choice!

3. You aren't getting enough protein

First of all, people need to get their facts right. Indian food is full of proteins and mostly vegetarian. So, taunting a vegetarian for having a less nutritious diet is sheer stupidity.

4. You need to make sure your kids have meat for a proper growth

Who said meat is mandatory for the proper growth of children? It's a myth that has been believed for years. Protein attained from plants is as good as protein received from meat. There's no difference in the protein levels. Kids will be equally fit and will have a proper growth if they have green vegetables.

Be proud of your vegetarianism!
