in Italy the numbers of people that is vegetarian is very small . in fact we are the countries that love the meats and whatever that derived by animals. but there are people as my father that is vegetarian by 30 years .
for me , when I was a child , was almost like a shame . with time I changed my idea and now i am proud of my father.
his diet is composed by:
the morning he has a big breakfast ( which is rare in Italy) whit orange, yogurt , banana , musli , rice milk, tart fruit and so on..
at lunch he eat pasta with vegetable and cheese , after a big salad and a lot of fruit,
in the evening he eat rice, farro, barley . vegetable and fruit .
i love this way of eating but I could never change my life so radically.
and you? :)
