           I may have to share with you again another article from the "Food for the Family" section of Health and Home. This was written by Aida Alarcon. I find it very helpful for those who, like me, aim to achieve the grandest age of living healthy.

           Vegetarianism is the oldest known diet to the human race. (see Genesis 1:29). It is the most efficient and wholesome diet for us.

           Here are some reasons why discarding meat is a healthier option:
  • Liability to take disease is increased 10 times by eating meat.
  • Meat is not essential to good health, strength and endurance.
  • Meat is a carrier of diseases, which are readily tranmitted when fresh is eaten.
  • Meat is high in fat and cholesterol, a leading cause of coronary disease.
  • The moral, intellectual, and physical capacities are depreciated by the habitual use of flesh meat.
  • Vegetarians enjoy better health and longer life expectancy.
  • Vegetarian diet chosen from nature's bona fide and healthful supply tends toward freedom of intellect and a sweetness and serenity of disposition, imparting strength to meet the challenges of life 
Why not try practicing being a vegetarian with this meatless main dish recipe. You will surely love it and live it. For our long life!


You will need:

1/2    kilo VG for bopis (available at vegetarian stores)
         or substitutes like gluten or textured vegetable protein, diced.

1       cup tomato sauce (optional)
1/2    annato seeds or atswete water
         Salt to taste
