Are you a Flexitarian?

The word “flexitarian” may sound like something a yoga devotee aspires to become, but the term actually refers to food choice. According to U.S. News:” Flexitarian” is a marriage of two words: flexible and vegetarian. The term was coined in 2009 by dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner in her book titled "The Flexitarian Diet: The Mostly Vegetarian Way to Lose Weight, Be Healthier, Prevent Disease and Add Years to Your Life."

With today’s focus on the link between diet and climate change, reducing one’s “foodprint” underscores an added benefit, especially for Love Your Food readers. Calculate your foodprint and see where you stand.

The flexitarian diet is tied for second place - behind a Mediterranean diet – for the healthiest diet. No exotic ingredients are required; but if you like to try new flavors, citrus, garlic, herbs and spices present a panoply of options for dressing up your flexi-meals. Opting for a flexitarian diet makes the cost-savings, Earth-friendly shift away from meat far easier than going cold-turkey to tofurkey! Learn more about flexitarian friendly options.
