However, this is a matter of not having the right kind of meat rather than preferring not to eat meat on the whole. Followers of Jainism believe that all living organisms whether they are micro-organism are living and have a soul, and have one or more senses out of five senses and they go to great lengths to minimise any harm to any living organism. Most Jains are lacto-vegetarians but more devout Jains do not eat root vegetables because they believe that root vegetables contain a lot more micro-organisms as compared to other vegetables, and that, by eating them, violence of these micro-organisms is inevitable.
So they focus on eating beans and fruits, whose cultivation do not involve killing of a lot of micro-organisms. No products obtained from dead animals are allowed, because when a living beings dies, a lot of micro-organisms called as decomposers will reproduce in the body which decomposes the body, and in eating the dead bodies, violence of decomposers is inevitable.
Jain monks usually do a lot of fasting, and when they knew through spiritual powers that their life is very little, they start fasting until death. Some Jains do not consume plant parts that grow underground such as roots and bulbs, because the plants themselves and tiny animals may be killed when the plants are pulled up. While classical Jewish law neither requires nor prohibits the consumption of meat, Jewish vegetarians often cite Jewish principles regarding animal welfare , environmental ethics , moral character, and health as reasons for adopting a vegetarian or vegan diet.
A number of medieval rabbis e. Many modern rabbis, by contrast, advocate vegetarianism or veganism primarily because of concerns about animal welfare, especially in light of the traditional prohibition on causing unnecessary "pain to living creatures" tza'ar ba'alei hayyim. According to Genesis , consumption of meat was prohibited to human beings 1: Some advocates of Jewish vegetarianism, such as Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook , describe vegetarianism as an eschatological ideal to which all human beings must eventually return.
Jewish vegetarianism and veganism have become especially popular among Israeli Jews. In , Israel was described as "the most vegan country on Earth", as five percent of its population eschewed all animal products. Within the Afro-Caribbean community, a minority are Rastafari and follow the dietary regulations with varying degrees of strictness.
The most orthodox eat only " Ital " or natural foods, in which the matching of herbs or spices with vegetables is the result of long tradition originating from the African ancestry and cultural heritage of Rastafari.
Ital cooking in its strictest form prohibits the use of salt, meat especially pork , preservatives, colorings, flavorings and anything artificial. The tenets of Sikhism do not advocate a particular stance on either vegetarianism or the consumption of meat,     but leave the decision of diet to the individual. This is understood to have been for the political reason of maintaining independence from the then-new Muslim hegemony, as Muslims largely adhere to the ritualistic halal diet.
Guru Nanak said that over-consumption of food Lobh , Greed involves a drain on the Earth's resources and thus on life. Who can define what is meat and what is not meat? Who knows where the sin lies, being a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian? Environmental vegetarianism is based on the concern that the production of meat and animal products for mass consumption, especially through factory farming , is environmentally unsustainable. According to a United Nations initiative, the livestock industry is one of the largest contributors to environmental degradation worldwide, and modern practices of raising animals for food contribute on a "massive scale" to air and water pollution, land degradation , climate change, and loss of biodiversity.
The initiative concluded that "the livestock sector emerges as one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. In addition, animal agriculture is a large source of greenhouse gases. Livestock sources including enteric fermentation and manure account for about 3.
Meat produced in a laboratory called in vitro meat may be more environmentally sustainable than regularly produced meat. In May , Ghent , Belgium, was reported to be "the first [city] in the world to go vegetarian at least once a week" for environmental reasons, when local authorities decided to implement a "weekly meatless day".
Civil servants would eat vegetarian meals one day per week, in recognition of the United Nations' report. Posters were put up by local authorities to encourage the population to take part on vegetarian days, and "veggie street maps" were printed to highlight vegetarian restaurants. In September , schools in Ghent are due to have a weekly veggiedag "vegetarian day" too.
Some groups, such as PETA , promote vegetarianism as a way to offset poor treatment and working conditions of workers in the contemporary meat industry. Similar to environmental vegetarianism is the concept of economic vegetarianism.
An economic vegetarian is someone who practices vegetarianism from either the philosophical viewpoint concerning issues such as public health and curbing world starvation, the belief that the consumption of meat is economically unsound, part of a conscious simple living strategy or just out of necessity. According to the Worldwatch Institute , "Massive reductions in meat consumption in industrial nations will ease their health care burden while improving public health; declining livestock herds will take pressure off rangelands and grainlands, allowing the agricultural resource base to rejuvenate.
As populations grow, lowering meat consumption worldwide will allow more efficient use of declining per capita land and water resources, while at the same time making grain more affordable to the world's chronically hungry.
Prejudice researcher Gordon Hodson observes that vegetarians and vegans frequently face discrimination where eating meat is held as a cultural norm. A market research study conducted by the Yankelovich research organisation concluded that "of the At least one study indicates that vegetarian women are more likely to have female babies.
A study of 6, pregnant women in "found that while the national average in Britain is boys born to every girls, for vegetarian mothers the ratio was just 85 boys to girls".

The "restricted" eating patterns of vegetarianism and veganism can legitimize the removal of numerous high-fat, energy-dense foods such as meat, eggs, cheese. However, the eating pattern chosen by those with anorexia or bulimia nervosa is far more restrictive than a healthful vegetarian diet, eliminating nuts, seeds, avocados, and limiting overall caloric intake.

The senator gave a speech and then pressed the flesh for a few minutes. Il senatore ha tenuto un discorso e incontrato la gente per qualche minuto. Definitely real maple syrup! I believe the key is planning, meal planning, shopping, and having the emergency meal or quick meals on hand when pressed for time. You are so correct- preparedness staves off impulse meal purchasing. Another go- to for me…Costco frozen veggie burritos Cedar Lane brand, I believe One gram of fat per burrito…accompanied by several Sriracha squirts-has saved me many a trip to the hospital cafeteria!
Currently we eat out about twice per month. I like that concept—eating out as an event, not just as a default. Mmmm frozen veggie burritos do sound pretty good! But I love my pizza: These are great tips. My husband and I never enacted a formal eating-out ban, but we eat out drastically less than we used to.
We also had a restaurant meal usually once a week or so, plus happy hours with friends after work several times a month. Thanks, as always, for the inspiration!
Sounds like you two have a good system going with the dinner leftover for lunch! I know, I too shudder to think of how much money we wasted eating out over the years. The frugal is our future: This is my situation! We still eat out way too much but it is something we are actively working on. Great job on paying for eating out just twice in the past 15 months. Do you invite them over? Has it altered any relationships?
Just curious how you mange that. Agreed, I would love to see a post about the social aspect of living the frugal life. Or when someone invites us to see a movie in the theater, or check out a new brewery, or go to a music festival.
Great questions on the socializing aspect of frugality. I think for us, there are a few different factors at play. Our strategy with restaurant invites is to counter with an invite to our home. Another factor for us is that a lot of our friends are frugal as well. We host board game nights, potlucks, BBQs, etc. I wonder if your ability to do that will change as you become parents and getting your kid to sleep and to stay sleeping becomes a priority. I will be reading with great curiosity as you become parents.
We have a wonderfully vibrant community of friends who all had kids at around the same time, and we never eat out together anymore! We also live in a very high cost of living area. Only three of the families in our friend group have houses big enough to entertain in, so we all take turns hosting dinner at these three houses. We used to do a lot of backpacking together but those days are over for a while.
Sounds cheesy, but it allows us to spend time together being creative, surprising one another, and allows us to expand our culinary skills with one another! We look for fried chicken sandwiches. Mmmm, a fried chicken sandwich sounds pretty tasty to me: Yes to advance prep! FW cooks batches of stuff for us on the weekend to cut down on his weeknight prep time. Makes such a huge difference! In fact, it comes out of our entertainment budget. A new thing I have tried is mystery shopping.
I actually did a shop yesterday at fancy schmancy restaurant. This helps our budget and lets us still enjoy eating out especially at restaurants I would never actually pay their ridiculous prices. I totally just started mystery shopping! This was a great post! I find our eating out goes in fits and spurts. Pre-frugal days, it was a LOT.
Then we had kids and at the age of , eating out with children is no fun. I found that when we are stressed, we tend to do it more often.
Eating out is a slippery slope, and my 9 year old would do it all the time and then complain that we NEVER go out. There are challenges though. I cook all the meals. On top of a full time job. We do love the Costco pizza same kind you have for emergency meals. On the weekend I am ruthlessly prepping for the week. So prepared foods from the grocery store are for sure okay in my house. Added to that, my work schedule just changed and I work until 6 pm 3x a week.
My spouse has a tendency to fall back on eating out. Last week our older son was in camp and he took him out to lunch at least twice. I find that not eating out, however, is a bit isolating. My friends like to eat out a fair bit. So now two of my friends have found each other — they go out together a lot as families , and I feel a bit excluded. Good luck with the eating out ban! I wish you all the very best! Interested to hear how you handle social occasions involving eating out.
Like a good friend is having a going away happy hour or a dear colleague is having a birthday brunch, etc. Works well for us and we get to see our friends without the expense. Hope that helps—feel free to shoot me more questions! Great strategies to cut out the eating out habit! I find what you said about making sure to have some frozen, pre-made dinners on hand that require minimal prep to be key in not eating out as much.
Social obligations kill me! I hear ya on that! The last three years, though, we have really focused on our home cooking and meal planning and now we are at the point where we hate to eat out. Makes all the difference! We were just visiting friends in Rochester yesterday and ate at a Turkish place for lunch.
After a few days of not particularly flavorful food with in the in-laws, having some falafel wraps was definitely, super worth it. Like the baked goods they are selling in Colorado now? You know, I just put similar post on my start-up blog today — I investigated savings achieved by replacing lunches at the office cantine with homemade food. It happens to us all! Maybe for you the post-game beers are a budgeted treat, and you cut back in other areas to make up for it. But I bet you could drastically reduce your post-game spending and still get all of the social fun.
Maybe bring a snack to eat on the way from the game to the bar? And nurse those beers! That is for a family of five. One major thing we did was focus only on places whee kids eat free. That was a HUGE savings over paying for two kids meals the youngest only has two teeth so far so she does not get one.
My wife just started doing mystery shopping. She jumps on the opportunities to evaluate restaurants. I do know plenty of folks who just bring a tupperware of food for the little ones to avoid both the ingredients and price of the kids meals.
Expense account meals are the best. Thanks so much for entertaining us, while you educate us. LOVE the Frugalhound pics too. Also, in addition to the frozen pizzas, I used to really really try hard to make sure I had leftovers for Friday. I have failed lately, but at least this last Friday we had scrambled egg tacos. This coming Friday is a date night. So we are paying for a babysitter.
That meal was disappointing. The more we cook, the more disappointing meals out are — I noticed that for sure. The cheapest was a quick burger and a free movie my spouse traded blood donation points for movie tix.
This Friday I think we are going even cheaper, and will aim for a picnic on the beach. We eat out more than I would like—a few times a month, perhaps.
FP likes to do things like go out to lunch as part of a day trip, patronize the excellent taco place across the street, and order pizza. I try to leave leftovers, crockpot food, pasta salad, etc. I strive for an interesting rotation of easy-to-prepare dinners that Mr. The second part is harder than it sounds! My mother a full-time teacher pretty much raised us on frozen fried chicken and Hamburger Helper, so made-from-scratch, feed-a-family weeknight meals are something I had to mostly figure out for myself.
Instead of precooking and freezing whole dinners, I often freeze components: Then if we keep a couple of boxes of mac and cheese around, we can. Good call on the pre-prepped dinner components! Love all the great ideas and photos! Food is definitely one of the toughest aspects of my budget. Reducing the urges when out and about seems to be one of my biggest problems. I try to pack food and avoid social hangouts at bars and restaurants. If I do go, I tend to get a water and eat beforehand.
That tends to reduce cravings when out and about. Snacking pre-event is definitely key. Eating out is certainly one of the big unnecessary expenses at our house! But I really like the strategies you guys are using to keep things under control. I second the convenience food too. I like to make batches of pinto bean burgers or bean and cheese burritos to freeze for that very purpose on top of freezing other appropriate leftovers.
I keep thinking that someday I should make a few pizzas and freeze them for this exact purpose…. Love this, thank you. Easy meals for week nights is crucial! Your comment the other day on the June Expenses post actually inspired me to write this, so thank you: Best of luck to you with your July meal plan. I totally agree—easy meals on weeknights are the key! We eat out a lot on the weekends. During the week I am good about cooking dinner and then we take the leftovers for lunch.
In fact we have a group of us that formed a monthly dinner club this year. On the last weekend of each month one couple will host dinner at their house for the group. Everyone brings along some adult beverages and we have had quite a variety of excellent food. I broke my eating out habit in one not-so-easy step: I had a health crisis. I can count on two fingers the number of restaurant meals available in the small city where I live that I consider healthy.
The benefits of eating healthful food prepared at home are far more than merely economic! I think health is a fabulous reason not to eat out. I estimate we hit up a restaurant twice a month and takeout maybe twice a month. Your numbers are quite low! Treat meals definitely help! I can make a ginormous pot roast on Sunday and we snack on it all week; we have our own laying hens, so I make deviled eggs by the dozen which turn into quick breakfasts, and my all-time favorite: That pre-cooked burger comes out of the freezer and goes into about a zillion things, my favorite being the pressure cooker with a pound of uncooked pasta, jar of pasta sauce, and one pasta-sauce-jar of water or broth, if I happen to have made some recently.
We definitely need to get our eating out habit under control! I will definitely be working with hubby to apply these steps—especially the emergency meal and zero tolerance tips. I love deviled eggs! And, cooking a huge batch on Sundays is a great technique. We do eat out occasionally, but that amount has been greatly reduced as my cooking skills have improved. I totally agree that having a solid plan and a great set of meals that are quick to prepare is crucial, especially when working a full time job outside of the home.
And I think easy weekday meals are the golden ticket! But, there was a time where we were happy to spend that money. I like when this happens. I do cook about every night husband cooks about 1 night a week. But lots of things can derail that plan which honestly stresses me out.
Getting invited to dinner ugh no leftovers! I try to cook in bulk but it always results in about 6 servings max! I did make 2 gallons of curry once, and we got sick of it. Due to the potatoes, it was not a good freezing candidate. Last month we ate out 3x as a couple one was a fun night with 3 other couples , H got breakfast one day, and lunch another day. That was a high month. Eating out is just easier. It has definitely taken us some time to get into the rhythm of cooking in bulk, etc.
And, having super easy weekday dinners has been a lifesaver too. All about that conscious spending: Before we moved to the country we probably ate out times per week. Not only is the new house far from a restaurant like a 30 minute drive but it also has a beautiful kitchen.
It has turned my husband into a wonderful cook. I can live with it. Now, my husband eats out his lunch most days. I am slowly working on that. I have asked family to give him a lunch bag for his bday. My goal is to get it to 3 days a week. I am happy to report that this week he gave up going for morning coffee and is packing his own extra tea to heat up at work. I am more like you — make the rule appear black and white and then when it is reasonable to be grey, be grey!
Haha, yes, I like that! Sometimes there just is a grey area! Especially when you have a greyhound in the home ;. Then I met my husband who was a chef, and loved to go out to eat and try new places. I was shocked at the expense, but we did fall into a habit of going out every weekend. It really makes it a special event when it DOES happen. Are you just counting that as a travel expense, or was it paid for by someone else? Being married to a chef sounds like an awesome arrangement: You have a good memory—we did eat out in NYC, but it was paid for.
We were on an all-expenses paid trip to speak about Frugalwoods at NYU, which was awesome. My kinda travel for sure! Plus, I really loved the opportunity to talk about my favorite thing—frugal living. I eat out less than two times a month.
