Why aren’t Linda McCartney products sold in the US?

Asked: Why aren’t Linda McCartney products sold in the US?

I'm a vegetarian and I love products that are alternatives, but I noticed Linda McCartney's foods aren't sold in the United States. Is there a reason why? And if there isn't why not? I just think they should bring these to the US so more people could discover the ways of vegetarians and vegans.

Tasty Vegetarian Recipes

While making the decision to become a vegetarian is a personal choice and can be done for physical, mental, or spiritual reasons, here are some great reasons that can make the decision to become a vegetarian easier.

Many vegetarians choose this lifestyle for ethical reasons. They are animal lovers and do not want to take any part in harming a living creature. When a person chooses not to buy and eat meat products, they are sending out a message to the corporations that operate “factory farms”, that they will not support inhumane treatment of animals. When animals are slaughtered, it is violent and usually done by hanging the animal upside down and slitting its throat. Animals contained on these so-called “farms” are also enclosed in cramped quarters where they cannot move and have no access to fresh water and sunshine. Many of these unfortunate creatures die either in cages or on their way to be slaughtered. When you learn of these things, you realize that by not eating meat, it is a small sacrifice compared to what the poor animal must endure.

A plant-based diet is also wonderful for health reasons. Acne can clear up and be replaced by glowing skin. You will be more fit and trim compared to someone that eats meat. There are few, if any, obese vegetarians. Coronary disease risk is cut almost in half. The risk of diabetes is reduced. Type ii diabetes is a serious, growing problem among adults and youth in the United States.

Plants contain the majority of vitamins and minerals that are essential for our bodies to be strong and healthy. From Omega-3’s to complex carbohydrates, plants have it all. Plants contain fiber and that is something that is sorely lacking from the American diet. Fiber is needed to help move wastes through the body so they can be eliminated. Elimination is important and this function helps reduce the risk of colon cancer.

Many meat products have been found to contain parasites and bacteria. It wasn’t too long ago that mad cow disease made headlines around the world. Who hasn’t heard of foot and mouth disease? These are some scary things to face for a meat-eater, even if the risk of being affected by them is low.

Why Go Vegetarian

A vegetarian diet is probably one of the most effective weight loss diets. If you want to permanently lose weight and improve your health, a vegetarian diet might be your best choice.

Becoming a vegetarian is actually a lifestyle change. It is a very crucial decision to make. Most people decide to go vegetarian because they have been struggling over the years to shed off excess weight, to no avail. Going vegetarian definitely entails commitment and lots of patience.

Having a vegetarian diet will still require you to make well-thought off plans and decisions with regards to changing your eating habits.

In order for weight loss diets to be successful, in general, you will need to have a lot of patience because changes cannot be effected right away. Shifting to a vegetarian diet can be as difficult, especially if you are not a vegetarian to begin with. Going vegetarian is a decision. Your patience will definitely be tested as you go about your daily routine. Not everybody is vegetarian. You will surely be surrounded by people who have meat in their meals. This is going to be the biggest obstacle you need to hurdle.

If you decide to become a vegetarian, you will need to start evaluating what is inside your refrigerator and your cupboard. First off, take out all meat products from the refrigerator, as well as from your pantry. Do this to avoid temptations right in your own kitchen. You will have to replace them with foods that are included in your vegetarian diet plan. Being a vegetarian actually requires a lot of work, the second step being making a trip to the grocery store.

You will be in for a challenge since groceries have different forms of meat products. First thing you need to do is find out where the vegetable products are and go straight to it. You need to be committed in everything you do.

Vegetarian recipes – easy and deliciously meatless

Deliciously meatless meals made from vegetarian recipes which include many varieties of beans and peppers more than compensate for the lack of protein which would otherwise be included as an element of a meat prolific diet. Beans is the common name for the large plant seeds of several genera of the family Fabaceae, and are to be found growing wild and in a cultivated state on every continent of the planet barring the southern continent of Antarctica.

Beans in all their cultivar guises are one of the oldest cultivated crops on the planet, and have been an integral element of dietary sustenance for thousands of years and were gathered in their wild state in the foothills of the Himalayas for centuries by the local indigenous people. The oldest domesticated and cultivated variety of beans currently confirmed by documentary and archeological evidence is from the second millennium BC in Peru, South America.

Beans are high in fibrous content and as such are exceptionally good for digestive tract health, and combined with high levels of protein, complex carbohydrates, folate and iron they are an excellent provider of most of the compounds and elements required for a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle. Low in saturated fats but containing unsaturated fats, they are especially beneficial as an element of a diet designed for people suffering from high cholesterol, and can help reduce the bad cholesterol which is the cause of raised blood pressure and other cardio vascular health related issues.

Vegetarian recipes which incorporate peppers in their many guises, along with beans and green vegetables which include but are not limited to cabbage, broccoli and other broad leaved plants provide all the nutrition, essential vitamins and minerals which are required as part of a healthy diet.

In most vegetarian recipes eggs and dairy related products such as milk and cheese are permitted, although in more strict vegetarianism the complete avoidance of any food product related to living creatures is strictly observed. Traditional foods which have long been regarded as staples in mainstream vegetarianism include but are not restricted to cereals/grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and soy products which include tofu and tempeh which are common sources of protein

SW Beans is the premier supplier of beans in the United States and as such is committed to providing high quality, premium bean products that meet the needs to today’s modern consumers. Their product is well suited to Vegetarian recipes and there are many examples to be found on their website. Log on today for hints, tips and full blown recipes as well as informative video presentation to help on your way. The address for all info and details is

What Does a Vegetarian Eat?

When someone thinks of what vegetarians eat, usually they see a dinner plate with a yawning chasm where the meat would normally be. Just that thought can make them feel a little deprived. If you don’t have a meat dish what do you eat; salad, maybe potatoes, or some broccoli? They have now exhausted their idea of a vegetarian diet. To someone who eats meat, the side dishes are extras that they eat if they have room for them. Vegetarians eat only the stuff that accompanies the meat.

The way you eat is really just a mind-set. If you don’t believe me, ask a friend or someone you work with what they’re going to eat for dinner. There is a good chance they will say “We’re having fish tonight” or “I’ve prepared a chicken casserole for dinner.” They might say they’re going to be eating out and name a well known local restaurant. And like most restaurants, the menu is built around a particular type of meat; burgers or fried chicken or tacos.

Have you ever noticed that nobody talks about the vegetables or the bread, salad or rice, or anything except the main meat? That is what defines the meal in their minds. Everything else is an afterthought, of no importance. It’s “Oh, yeah, I guess we had better fix something to go with the meat.” That’s our western society and the way we’ve been brought up, one of our traditions. You could even say one of our habits. When we talk about the meal, the meat is the main focus, the reason for eating.

Our diet of spotlighting meat and animal products can actually be fairly boring. However, if you decide to change to a vegetarian way of eating, lots of options open up. With hundreds of different varieties of vegetables, grains, fruits, grain products, legumes, and many other vegetarian foods, you will never get bored. The term “legume” refers to most types of beans and peas, such as dried beans and peas, pinto beans, black beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, lentils, split peas, azuki beans, black-eyed peas, and navy beans. These can all be bought canned, dry, frozen, and sometimes even as flour and flakes.

The methods of preparing things from the plant world are unlimited. A lot of these items are used in countries other than the United States and have been used by these different cultures for centuries. While a few may be something you’ve tried before, the variety of these types of dishes is endless. You can experience recipes from around the world.

Most people only think about what they can’t eat on a vegetarian diet rather than the wide selection they have. With the overwhelming diversity in the plant world, there is an abundance of flavorful, delicious, nutritious, colorful, exciting choices. When you start a vegetarian diet, you’ll be amazed at the whole universe of variety that opens up to you!
