Vegetarian Diets --Let Me
Count The Ways

There are several types of vegeterians:

Lacto-ovo-vegetarians eat plant foods,
milk, milk products and eggs, but avoid
flesh foods (meat, poultry and fish).
Lacto-vegetarians eat plant foods, milk
and milk products, but avoid eggs and
flesh foods.
Ovo-vegetarians eat plant foods and eggs,
but avoid milk, milk products and flesh
foods.
Pesco/pollo-vegetarians eat meats like
seafood and chicken, but do not eat other
meats, such as beef, lamb, and pork.
Total vegetarians, also called vegans, eat
plant foods only.

THE SEA LION'S DIET --A Personal
Struggle with High Blood Pressure
(30 DAYS TO LOWER YOUR BLOOD
PRESSURE )

By Samantha Landry (January 9, 2008)

Day One

Breakfast:

Egg white, fried in non-stick oil spray, peppered, no
salt (add diced onions and diced tomatoes for bulk)

One slice (about the size of a hand palm) of salmon lox,
not too salty

One-half of a nectarine, sliced

One glass of low-fat milk, added one spoonful of
orange sugar-free powdered drink for flavor

Lunch:

One-half of a bag of mixed salad greens. Added
chopped tomatoes and cucumbers

Cooked one bag of frozen spinach in a tablespoon of
olive oil. Added onions and red peppers for taste.

Dumped the hot vegetables on top of the cold salad.

Add balsamic vinagrette for taste.

Add one can of sardines (I used the can that comes in
tomato sauce rather than any of the ones in oil, to cut
my oil intake)


One tall glass of low-fat milk, flavored with orange
drink to add taste.


Dinner:


























Same salad, veggie mix as at lunch.

Cooked one fish pattie of white fish (I know it has
some bread in it somewhere but it says it's 100% fish
on the package). Use the spray can of olive oil to cut
the daily fat.

One cup of low-fat yoghurt for dessert

Exercise: Walked one-half hour to the supermarket.
One half-hour back. Walked about 20-25 minutes in the
supermarket, okay, "strolled" is more accurate.

Before I went to sleep, I reviewed My
30-Day Game
Plan to Stay Focussed.
