Eggplant smothered pasta is an ideal nutritious vegetarian meal!


Some people especially those who are non-vegetarians always wonder if vegetarians ever eat foods with enough vitamins and minerals since some of them don' even eat eggs, meat, poultry and fishes to mane a few.

The answer to this type of statement is that although majority of vegetarians don't eat eggs, meat and fishes but they eat fruits and vegetables. Most of these fruits and vegetables they eat have the essential vitamins which compensates for the meat, fishes and eggs they don't eat.
