Veggie and Non-veggie facts: Food habits or a mantra

I have been wondering about the ways we have our food habits. Many are Veggie and the retro the Non-Veggies as well. What makes them deal with these habits? Absolutely these should be the contribution in one’s life by the society and circles we live in. It is always the unbiased situation of where and as what is one born in this world.

Many friends of mine are vegetarians in food habits. I stress on food habits as my vegetarian food eating friends do not mind using leather (animal products) in their life style wears. I have always thought whether this makes them complete vegetarian? Well, that’s not what I want to explore at the moment and the result word is left to each one of you to decide.

I was going through one of the monthly issue of Reader’s Digest of Jan, 2011. An article ‘Non-Veggie facts’ connects with my thoughts about the battle of Veggie and Non-Veggie claimers and arguers. How does this impact on what one believes.

Veg & Non-Veg

Many of my friends are vegetarians only at home. Some come out and taste all the non-veggie stuff in parties and get together meets.

Wow! Its yummy claims one of my friend, though it would be risky for me to mention his name here. Well, some facts about veggie and non-veggie are given below.

  • The colorfully delicious jelly dessert are made of gelatin, it is extracted after boiling the bones of hooves of cattle, horses or pigs. But there are many vegetarian jellies too, made from substitutes got from seaweed (carrageenan and agar agar), pectin and konjac.
  • Several cosmetics. Pearlescence, used for the shimmer look in lipsticks and nail polish, comes from fish scales.
  • Some skincare products, such as creams and lotions, may contain cerebrosides, which come from cattle, oxen or swine brain cells or other nervous-system tissues.
  • Cosmetic brushes might use goat, squirrel, horse or other animal hair.
  • Medicine capsules could be made of gelatin
  • Bone china contains bone ash.
  • Leather (anything from a-z): Alligator, buffalo, cow, deer, yak, zebra…
  • Alcohol, such as beer and wine (which may be clarified and stabilized) using one or more of the following: Albumin (derived from eggs), Chitin (from crabs and lobsters cells) or gelatin or isinglass (derived from fish swim bladder).
  • Silk. One silk saree requires putting atleast nine thousand (9000) silk worms into boiling water.

So, now you know some facts. I too got these facts, amazing facts about what we use in our day to day activities which, I am glad to share. Now you can decide what is right and wrong for you. The cycle somehow has to be rotating. I mean the ecological cycle.

Are you a Veggie or Non-veggie? What can you share here…?

    I am 17 years old, female. Prom is cmnoig up in mid-May and I put on about 10 pounds over the summer that I want to take off plus a little bit more. I am 5’0 and 119 pounds. What I want to lose most, other than all around is my love handles, stomach (#1), butt (sticks out =/), and my arms are a little too fat for my body.I am planning on going to the gym everyday for about 1.5-2 hours and eating healthy, however, I need a little help with following it and what would be beneficial and what wouldn’t.I went to the gym today, for the first time for this diet plan/weight losing plan. I did the treadmill for 5ish minutes fast walking (warm-up/cool down) and about 10 minutes running (not SO fast, but running) and then did the sitting bike for 10 minutes/1.5 miles. It was my first day so I didn’t do much.I am planning on eating healthy so it helps with my weight loss as well and my face.I plan to eat Special K cereal with 1% milk in the morning (615 AM)Lunch at school: apple and water? If I should eat more, maybe a sandwich (wheat bread with a slice of cheese since I’m a vegetarian, would that be healthy?) (1030 AM)100 calorie pack? Or a granola bar would be healthier? (12-2ish, anytime between there)Dinner: Indian food, but healthy, like soups and veggies.Snacks during the day: apples, plums, oranges/tangerines/clementines, watermelon.6 bottles of water per day.Not eating after 7 PM.I am planning to go to the school gym right after school from 230-3 and then come home and go to my gym by my house from 345-5?What machines should I do? And how long about? (How do I keep myself from getting bored=( lol)Also like on treadmill/elliptical should I do incline/hill, if it makes a difference?Also I have a bit of acne on my face. Will exercising and eating like that help clear it up?When will I see results? And is it possible to lose a bit of love handles/stomach/arm fat in about less than 3 months?Thank you so much and if you have any other experience suggestions/ideas please help. If anything is unhealthy (foods that I listed) or exercises that will not help/help please tell me, thank you =)If you ever did a diet/exercise plan that worked/is working in about 3 months, please tell.
