Food for brain
Once, jokingly, in a 35_small_1166210243 conversation with a friend who has for many years refrained from eating meat, they brought up the “term” – an angry and kind vegetarian. “Evil” is one who condemns people who eat meat and is constantly trying to convert everyone to their faith. A “good” vegetarian – does not go on crusades to meat-eaters, only by example, showing the world all the benefits and bonuses of clean food. I always referred to the “good” vegetarians. For I believe that before this it is necessary to mature, and the transition to a new diet should be absolutely stressless. In general, my motto has always been and remains “If you can’t eat meat, don’t eat.” And here on the site vyasa.ru I come across the brochure “Food for the mind.” The last part about the interpretation of the Bible seems to me controversial (as far as I know historically and to this day, meat consumption has never been condemned in the Middle East, even vice versa), but the first part with the statements of great men and luminaries of mankind and other physiological evidence seemed interesting – especially for those who needs reflexion of meat food just intellectual analysis, and not just an internal feeling and sensation. In general, a curious reading, I can not help but share.
Ovid (43 BC – 18 AD, Roman poet):
Oh mortals! Be afraid to defile
Their bodies with this food of the wicked
Take a look – your cornfields are full of cereals,
And the branches of the trees bent under the weight of the fruit,
You are given vegetables and herbs that are delicious,
When skillfully prepared by hand,
A bunch of vines
And honey gives fragrant clover.
Verily Mother Nature is generous,
Giving us these goodies abundance,
She has everything for your table,
Everything … to avoid murder and bloodshed.
