why don't eat onion and garlic, mushrooms ?

35 posts in this topic

Onions and garlic are botanical members of the alliaceous family (alliums) - along with leeks, chives and shallots.  

Edible mushrooms are the fleshy and edible fruit bodies of several species of macrofungi (fungi which bear fruiting structures that are large enough to be seen with the naked eye). They can appear either below ground (hypogeous) or above ground (epigeous) where they may be picked by hand

:) Vaishnavas - followers of Lord Vishnu, Rama and Krishna - like to only cook with foods from the sattvic category. These foods include fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, dairy products, grains and legumes, and so on. Specifically, Vaisnavas do not like to cook with rajasic or tamasic foods because they are unfit to offer to the Deity.

In Bhagavad Gita

Text* 8: Foods dear to those in the mode of goodness increase the duration of life, purify one's existence and give strength, health, happiness and satisfaction. Such foods are juicy, fatty, wholesome, and pleasing to the heart.

Text* 9: Foods that are too bitter, too sour, salty, hot, pungent, dry and burning are dear to those in the mode of passion. Such foods cause distress, misery and disease.

So are sattvic foods those that are under Text 8, and rajasic and tamasic foods those that are under Text 9? How come mushrooms are one of the bad foods, are they considered too dry or pungent maybe? What about hot/chili peppers, or pungent warming spices like cinnamon or ginger, what are those considered?

I find food rules in religions kind of interesting.

You should eat to keep yourself healthy, not every one can eat dairy products, so a belief in a deity should not have anything to do with what you eat.

This kind of thinking is so old, it is a touch alarming to know this is still being practiced when we know so much more about the impacts nutrition has on our bodies and mind, and it has nothing to do with deities or the beliefs in them.

What you must remember is we know what is edible because of all those who did not in the past. Gods have nothing to do with a persons nutrition and it is dangerous to ones health to think that way. You should eat what suits your body, not your belief in deities.

I'm a 50 years old Native American and in better shape than most 20 years old and my cooking is so spicy it was listed as a WMD and national threat by the British Government and use to have Gurkha's running for ice cubes. 

I call superstitious nonsense on this. :yes:

spicy foods cause stomach disease Diarrhea !!!!!!!!!!! :angry:

Spicy seasoning is perhaps the most common source of food-induced diarrhea, especially if it's a strong spice that you're not used to. It irritates the stomach lining while it is digested. This causes gas, bloating, burning, and in many cases, diarrhea. Chili peppers and curry blends are common causes

Dairy can also cause diarrhea if someone is lactose intolerant.

You're full of it.  Diarrhea is no more a disease as a painful foot is.

My wife loves spicy food. The hotter the better. I can only handle so much. 

Concerning the ideas presented in this thread, is that our knowledge of health and nutrition has grown tremendously since those text were written. Eat a diet that is good for your health. Something balanced.

Considering at that time medical knowledge was extremely limited. So in a way it is completely understandable. However, as I mentioned before, we've learned a lot since then. Some of us can handle spicy foods, others can not. There are those who unknowingly have intestinal issues and can not handle things like butter, milk, and certain veggies. 

In my case I can not handle anything with seeds or nuts. Too much milk products and I'm doing sprints to the throne. Same with greasy/heavy foods. Butter being one of them. Too much and I'm in "Hell". 

With that in mind we all have our own dietary needs. I do get the idea behind what the OP has presented. I personally think balance is better. Adding a little bit of spiciness to foods won't hurt.

As i mentioned before, not everyone can eat these, you must eat what suits you and although certain foods are considered healthy, they are not for everyone.

Where does your belief in your deity fall into this:

Nuts and peanuts can cause allergic reactions, which are sometimes severe. A severe reaction to nuts is called anaphylaxis and can be life-threatening.

Milk allergy is an abnormal response by the body's immune system to milk and products containing milk. It's one of the most common food allergies in children

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/milk-allergy/symptoms-causes/syc-20375101

Quote

Lactose intolerance is a condition in which people have symptoms due to the decreased ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in dairy products

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactose_intolerance

Today in the modern educated world we have a list of ingredients on products for those who aware on what they can or can not eat, bringing religious beliefs into a diet is ridiculous as well as dangerous.

I’m more interested in this phrase “mode of passion.”  It seems that this is considered a negative.  Can you elaborate on how you define passion, and why it is a negative?  

PS.  Passion is also mentioned as a sin in the Bible.
