With resolution season in full swing, you may be thinking about eating less meat or removing it completely from your diet. But just because something is vegetarian doesn't mean it's healthy. Here are five foods you'd be smart to avoid (or eat in moderation).
1. Tofu. Soybeans are generally healthy, but tofu can be heavily processed and hard for your stomach to digest. For a meat substitute that's easier on the body, try this tempeh recipe.
2. Processed cheese. Though it's a good source of protein for non-meat eaters, even high-quality cheese is high in saturated fat and junkier options may contain artificial ingredients. Opt for less-processed cheeses, like Andrew Zimmern’s homemade ricotta.
