I have seen many vegetarians who do not have a reasonable arrangement of staple foods and main dishes, resulting in poor nutrition and inability to stick to them.
If we compare the human body to a machine, the main food - rice or noodles - is the main provider of energy and minerals, which is equivalent to the gasoline that powers the machine, and less energy and strength is not enough. The main dish - a variety of vegetables - is the main provider of vitamins and protein, equivalent to lubricants, less will affect the efficiency and performance of the machine. In the daily diet, both should be given equal importance, not biased.
I have been a vegetarian for 10 years now and will be one for life.
I, learning the traditional culture of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism on eating meat and meat analysis, began to try not to eat meat, not onions, garlic and leeks, within a year, gradually cut off eggs, duck eggs, goose eggs, quail eggs and other animal eggs, and finally cut off a variety of animal milk, on the road to vegan.
I usually do not have a hobby of snacking, just eat three meals a day. In the first 4 years of eating vegan, the main food is a variety of noodles - pastry, steamed buns, noodles, etc., with a variety of vegetarian dishes and soy products, occasionally buy some nuts - melon seeds peanuts chestnuts, etc., these 4 years, the work pressure is not great, the physical and mental requirements are not high, eating vegan can cope.
Later, more than 4 years, the work pressure is a bit large, the physical and mental requirements are high, at this time, rice is the main, only to begin to eat a meal of two bowls of rice, and then eat a bowl, and then do not want to eat rice, this time began to physical weakness and low energy, to cope with the work has been unable to cope.
By chance, I saw on the Internet, the Buddhist master Yin Guang on eating vegetarian should eat more noodles instructions, began to change the main food, and began to eat more noodles, such as oil splashed noodles, fried knife cut noodles, fried ramen, (of course, are vegetarian fried, do not put eggs meat, replaced by a variety of tofu products.) Soon, the energy was restored! After four years of eating vegetarian contrast, I really appreciate, the teacher said: eat noodles, they will be strong spirit, full of energy, loud voice. If you eat rice, you can only feed your hunger, there is no such effect.
The first thing you need to do is to take care of yourself.
It is recommended that vegetarians follow Master Yin Guang's instructions to arrange their daily staple foods and main dishes.
It is said that practitioners, in order to accumulate merit and virtue, do not eat meat and fish.
We respect life by not eating animals.
