The Traditional Vegetarian Food Pyramid

People with Type 2 diabetes should consider using the Traditional Vegetarian Diet Pyramid. This Pyramid eliminates saturated fats and cholesterol from the healthy diabetes menu.

There are several types of Vegetarian diets, including strict Vegan diets (no animal products may be consumed) and lacto-ovo diets, in which vegetarians may consume cheese, eggs, and other dairy products. It is essential that vegetarians carefully balance their nutrition so that they are able to obtain the proper amount of protein to stay healthy
