Working on last week’s post about being a true vegetarian for lent, I came across this book, What Would Jesus Eat?
I confess I’ve only read summaries so far. But apparently, Jesus ate mostly bread and fish. He probably ate some grapes, dates, olives and figs. He probably didn’t eat much beef, and didn’t eat pork at all. I don’t think Jesus ate chocolate, but that might need some research.
If Jesus lived today, in the flesh, I think he’d be a vegetarian, mostly. I’m pretty sure Saint Francis would be a vegetarian. They might have accepted donations of meat, but then they might have given those away.
I really enjoyed some grilled tofu and veggies sprinkled with peanuts for lunch yesterday. I’m not missing chicken at all.
