It is healthy to be a vegetarian. A generous dose of non-vegetarian diet poses health risks like cancer, obesity, diabetes, constipation and even gallstones. In fact, a vegetarian diet is rich in fibre content, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. This helps in cleansing the body’s system, whereas, non- vegetarian products like meat and fish contain a lot of residue from toxic chemicals and the body of non-vegetarian animals contain 10 times more amount of hydrochloric acid than that of the vegetarian ones, but human body should not have the same amount of hydrochloric acid. This establishes the fact that the human body is basically meant for a vegetarian diet, which results in easy digestion. Non-vegetarian food is good in its own terms but at least you should have a healthy immune system to take up all the flesh.
The Colour Effect!
All the vegetables we know of come in an array of colours, with shine which makes them more appetizing and appealing to our eyes. While on the other hand, meat and fish usually come in boring shades of brown and beige.

In fact, it even enhances and builds up your immune system while also providing a perfect setting for your stressful mood swings. As for the colour Green, it associates with the feelings of calm anticipation and has a soothing, relaxing effect on the body as well as the mind. But, do you know? The Green colour could also help control the anxiety of over eating in you. With its relaxing traits, it helps stabilize emotions, therefore providing a balanced move towards your meal. And, if you are missing on any green leafy vegetable in your daily diet, then get ready to run on a treadmill every day or to buy heavy gymming equipments for your Gym at home!
