Supposedtly you should be able to.

Actually, your stake may well be vegetarian.

i think you would probably be able to eat only vegs. i have done and will again. i do like fish, chicken, and occasionally a small steak. would i want to do it all the time, no. you would have to know a lot about nutrition so one would not be low in some vitamins eat only vegs for week, sure.

I have been a vegetarian all my life. Vegetarian and Vegan diets are very healthy. Their are other ways to nutrients. Such as vitamins and supplaments, many other foods contain the nutrients you need.

from my dietician herself: vegetarianism is very feasible, whereas veganism is incredibly unhealthy.
@ above-posted message..... if a supplement is ingested in lieu of adequate, proper nutrition, that's a diet that ought be reconsidered. a healthful diet is sufficient in providing nutrition; supplementation is an afterthought..... & 1 of those b-vitamins? found either in meats, or pill-form. i'll take the meat, thanks. :)

as an add-on:.....yeah, veggie-ism is healthy for some. google kwashiorkor & marasmus, though. quinoa or other items- those in proper combinations during meals- offer proper nutritition. too many, though, lack proper info on pairing food items for a nutritionally balanced diet.

The concept of pairing foods to create a 'complete proteins' was based on old studies thirty years ago. It is unnecessary as you can get all of your protein needs from a varied diet. Just like any diet, a variety of healthy food is important, but the whole protein argument is vastly overblown.

Here is a good source of information for anyone interested in vegan or vegetarian dietary needs: Vegan Dietitian

Your dietitian is contradicting the American Medical Association, the American Heart Association, USDA, the Mayo Clinic and many many other sources.

i'm nary interested in meatless diet, as per me, myself; i know what i've received dietitary info on, though;....
i'm rather well-taught by very adept, well-recieved instructors & Chefs. i'm also certified in nutrition.

& as for the vegetarian dietary stuff, lol, i'm not gonna even begin delving into that. when they find b-vitamins in lieu of cattle that involves nary a pill-form of supplempentation, drop me a line, & THEN we'll bicker the attritubutes.....(or lack thereof) of organ meats, steaks....

i could continue for ages.....
though i shant ramble on.

I've got no problems with anyone that wants to eat meat, but there's a lot of misinformation about vegan/vegetarian diets. The bottom line is, it can be a very healthy diet with a little planning but a poor vegan diet can be just as bad as a poor omnivore diet. Meat can have a place in a healthy diet as well, just not for me =).
