According to ancient wisdom traditions, the best eating habit to a balanced diet is to have 40% whole grain, 40% freshly prepared vegetables, 10% of fresh fruits, and 10% of legumes, seed, and nuts. The sages of these cultures understood the body-mind connection between a vegetarian eating, a healthy body, and a peaceful mind. Long life and absence of illness was a combination of vegetarian eating and ethical living.
Ethical living starts with respecting all living beings, which includes the animal kingdom. Reducing and eliminating violence in society starts with eliminating slaughterhouses in the community.
What is the impact on the world to commit to a plant-based diet?
It reduces global warming, avoids excessive CO2 production, saves large amounts of water, reduces the destruction of topsoil / tropical rainforest, and helps to ensure environmental sustainability.
In conclusion, let’s use John Robbins quote, which brings light on the importance of a plant-based diet.
“It is increasingly obvious that environmentally sustainable solutions to world hunger can only emerge as people eat more plant foods and fewer animal products. To me it is deeply moving that the same food choices that give us the best chance to eliminate world hunger are also those that take the least toll on the environment, contribute the most to our long-term health, are the safest, and are also, far and away, the most compassionate towards our fellow creatures.”
