Vegetarian Diet

Have you decided to change your lifestyle and eat plant-based foods for your health, the environment, or ethical reasons?  The challenge is making sure you are getting adequate amounts of protein, calcium, and vitamins in your diet.  Our dietitians are experts at guiding you through this major lifestyle change.  With detailed individual counseling, our dietitians assist people in making appropriate changes to their diets while still conforming to taste and cultural preferences.

Dietitians can provide guidance on how to modify recipes to make them healthier, introduce you to new grains, beans, greens and more, and suggest easy preparations for healthy foods to help you take this significant step towards health.

Ask A Dietitian

WakeMed dietitians are ready to provide helpful information on a variety of topics. Every Wednesday we will respond to a question submitted on the WakeMed Voices Blog. * Note due to the volume of questions received, we are unable to respond to every question submitted.

Wondering which protein bar is best? Confused about what you heard/read in a recent nutrition news story or article? Is eating organic foods better for my health? E-mail your question to AskADietitian@wakemed.org.

Ask A Dietitian is intended for general questions about nutrition. Ask A Dietitian is not intended to be a replacement for professional medical treatment or one-on-one counseling and is not intended to establish a patient/provider relationship. Please schedule an appointment with our Registered Dietitians or your physician regarding your individual health needs.
