Is it always a problem for vegetarians?

There is repeatedly great debate over whether vegetarians and vegans attain sufficient protein. There is certainly different kinds of vegetarians, as there is certainly different kinds of proteins. A vegan is a person that does not eat or utilize any product made from or by any sort of animal. Lots of parents are bewildered when their teens come home and proclaim that they will become vegetarians and might fear that they aren't going to be getting enough nutrition with their newfound diet. So long as they are getting sufficient selection from the foods they eat, their protein, calcium and other nutrient intakes are surprisingly healthy. No matter what we eat, balance is important.

A friend who has been a vegan for many years recently told me how difficult it is for her to escape eggs in her diet. So she has started eating eggs as long as it is not as fried, boiled and the like.

My last sentence should read "So she has started eating eggs as long as they do appear as fried eggs, boiled eggs and the like."
