The Sexiest Vegetarian

A leading news channel  posted the photos of the Sexiest vegetarian on this planet yesterday. What surprised me was the sexy element attached to being a vegetarian? Or was it just an exercise to make people embrace vegetarianism . But one thing is for sure, it was a celebrity endorsement to be a vegetarian. In ancient times, by means of religion an individual was conditioned to be a veggie. But over a period of time the eating preferences have changed. The new generation wants to explore food fusion and therefore lot of birds and animals have to lose their life in the process. They become breakfast for some, lunch for many and dinner for the majority when they have a major role to play in maintaining our biodiversity, preserving the climate on this planet in their own natural ways. No wonder we are seeing so many NGOs coming up for ethical treatment of birds and animals, fund raising for their cause so that they don’t become extinct.

It is said that vegetarian food takes just 3 or 4 hours to digest completely whereas the non vegetarian food takes more than 3 days to digest. Over a period of time it remains in our system and starts reflecting as obesity, cardiovascular problems like cholesterol, indigestion etc. Research has also proved that vegetarian food is good for health, longevity and wellbeing.  The same rule applies to the Chinese food also which is available in plenty in Indian cities. Most of the Chinese food gets cooked in oil, vinegar,  preservatives and the rice and vegetable are half cooked, resulting in poor digestion. We need to embrace all cultures, tradition, cuisine but must also ensure good maintenance for our own body and this planet. By being a vegetarian you also use less energy from the earth to digest your food. If you are a hard core non veg eater then you take more energy from the earth to digest your foods. Nature has its own laws and  it calculates the energy deposits, withdrawals perfectly.

To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction – Newton’s Third Law of Motion

The new age mantra is to be sexy by adopting vegetarian food habits. Who said vegetarians are not strong ?  Elephant is the most gigantic animal on earth and guess what?  It is intelligent ,powerful and strong.

So do not wait for Kareena Kapoor, Mallika Sherawat to turn vegetarians, in order to save yourself and this planet. Go green! Eat Green Vegetables and cleanse your body and mind and help the planet in maintaining its natural beauty, bio diversity. In the west, more and more people are embracing a vegetarian diet, however they  need to curb the practice of food wastage. A diet rich in vegetables, fruit juices also helps in maintaining sattva and more concentration on spiritual practices is possible. There are many vegetarian recipes, websites and blogs available online to help you with your vegan diet. So don’t wait to change

In the meanwhile, I too have to be in the list of sexiest vegetarian J

  1. I liked the term "Sexiest Vegetarian"... But u said that eating non veg creates lot of problems like obesity etc etc... becoz it taked upto 3 days for digestion.. There is a conditional clause behind this. If a person regularly exercises his digestion power also increases. Also,any non-veg dish can be easily digested.

    In the primitive ages human beings used to hunt animals and eat it. So, sexy non veggies were also there in the olden days.. And any sex related elements are symbolically termed as NON VEG....

    So, I luv Non Veg.....

  2. yes but not everyone excercises regularly!! there are a few who are committed. But all i meant was to be more centered on a vegetarian diet if you can. I respect your food choices and preferences.
