A vegetarian diet can provide all the nutrients you need, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it does. Any diet can provide all the nutrients you need if you know what foods to eat.
There are four nutrients that vegetarians need to watch and make sure they are getting them: *******protein, iron, zinc, and B12.
Each of these have vegetable sources as well as meat sources.
Complete proteins can be obtained by having legumes and rice or cheese and pasta. Sea vegetables are one of the best sources of iron and B12. Zinc can be easily provided from bran flakes.
