What Would Jesus Eat?

8 Comments

Working on last week’s post about being a true vegetarian for lent, IĀ  came across this book, What Would Jesus Eat?

http://www.amazon.com/What-Would-Jesus-Eat-Ultimate/dp/0785273190

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.

  1. Thanks for the reblog!

  2. certainly Jesus would look deeply
    & consume a wise & compassionate diet šŸ™‚

  3. I agree! Thank you for saying so, smiling calm one. šŸ™‚

  4. I’m an ovo-pescatarian. I’ve never been a fan of meat, and since starting this homeopathic anti-inflammatory diet, I’ve learned that my body doesn’t handle more than a little animal protein at a time. So I guess I’ve “known” for years but now have the confirmation that it’s the right choice for me. If you liked the tofu, have you tried tempeh? I “fried” some with coconut aminos in a non-stick pan and LOVED it. šŸ™‚

  5. It’s been a few years since I’ve had tempeh. Maybe I’ll give your recipe a try this weekend. Thanks for the tip! Glad you’re finding what works well for your body. šŸ™‚

  6. This is a good post. It highlights that we need to keep it simple.

  7. Thank you. Simple is good.
