no meat?

It’s not the Darjeering experience, but it has the similarities though. Commonalities in terms of rituals, spiritual journey, and another segment in life that somehow had weaved a part of my being. It all started when I was convinced to join a meditation class then it progressed to yoga, and then the specks about Buddhism was injected to my sponge mind, which in turn made a twist in my life. But I heard a knock on my door to get off from the Darjeering limited and made my own journey on foot. (useless intro, i watched Darjeering last night)lol


no meat


Another thing that actually made my mind was the food. Soya, vegetables, and Soya, NO MEAT, meat is against the law. So there was time wherein the dilemma between being an herbivore or an omnivore came into my thoughts. Chimps, they do have the same (almost the same) guts like human but they don’t eat meat. But no way, I don’t belong to their species, my gray matter is way far better than theirs. The proposition here is if you can survive with no meat. Answer, yippee but it’s difficult and it’s pretty expensive. Here’s the fact that I’ve learned from my nutrition class – amino acids, the building block of proteins, that constitutes our muscles, promotes growth of tissues, and rebuilds shambles tissues are obviously very important to life. There are generally 8 essential amino acids, and the rule for this amino acids to work is “All or nothing”, easy, right? Meaning to say, you need the complete set if it or else no growth of tissues, no rebuilding and of course atrophy. Another proposition is that “protein is everywhere”, the essential amino acids must be complete though. Remember, the all or notthing law. If protein constitutes the muscles, meaning to say meat is also the main source. Got it? So the good source of protein is no other than MEAT. So living up as veggielicious is a hard work. If you’re going to infuse religion and other philosophical beliefs to this vegetarian issue, you oughtta find protein substitutes such as SOYA to halt brooding.

But last week, my friend has introduced me to this organic food mania. Though I am a bread addict and love the different varieties of bread from organic to French, her commodity is pretty unusual, new to my ears and palate. She bought this organic bread from cleanse-nourish company and it’s delicious. All ingredients are natural and best-picked. The nutritious and organic box contains MALUNGGAY bread, which is really new to me and the other kinds are carrot, wheat, and oats, which are all familiar to me but the taste is really new. Another funky thing about this bread was the dipping; they got malunggay dip, pesto Pilipino dip, garlic and cashew dip, and the lemon and olive oil combi dip. The ratings: 5 star delicious-oh!!!According to my friend, one box of that bread contains all the essential proteins, ohws? Whatever, i can't live without MEAT. bow!
