Hoose a vitamin that is likely to reach toxic levels in the body from excessive supplementation
Choose a vitamin that is likely to reach toxic levels in the body from excessive supplementation. Then, answer the following questions:
What are the risks of toxicity?
Is your vitamin wateror fat-soluble?
How does vitamin solubility affect absorption, transport, and storage?
How can the dietary reference intake (DRI) be used to provide guidance when it comes to avoiding toxicities?
There is significant scientific evidence that a diet emphasizing whole, unprocessed, plant foods, such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds, and heart-friendly fats, such as olive and canola oil, fish and shellfish, can reduce the risks of heart disease, stroke, and cancer. This type of diet provides plenty of macro and micronutrients as well as dietary fiber and phytochemicals. Importantly, this diet de-emphasizes meat (beef, pork, and veal) and whole-milk dairy products.
Your assignment is to prepare at least one recipe for family or friends based on whole, unprocessed plant foods. Consider trying a vegetable tofu stir-fry, a black bean enchilada with guacamole and brown rice, bean and corn burrito, tofu tomato rigatoni, or a vegetarian soup such as lentil, black bean, or split pea, and barley.
Tip: If you are cooking for family or friends who are not used to eating whole, unprocessed plant foods, serve them vegetarian spaghetti sauce (tomato sauce without ground beef) preferably over whole-wheat pasta.
If you already have a super vegetarian recipe you would like to try, please do! Otherwise, search the Internet or vegetarian cookbooks for a recipe that looks good to you
