Veg or non-veg?

India
September 30, 2012 2:59am CST
Today is Sunday, my son, myself and hubby prefer to eat chicken usually, doctor has advised us not to give up non veg foods totally, but to eat at least once a week, so on Sundays, I cook either egg curry, or goat-meat or chicken. In breakfast on Sundays and other days omelet is part of breakfast. [b]The problem is my daughter in law is pure vegetarian; she can’t tolerate flavor/smell of non-veg foods; so I have another small kitchen; where I cook non-veg; we eat there too. She doesn't like that her daughter Subhee or son Bishu eat non-veg; well I honor it; don’t like to interfere. What about you, are you veg or non-veg? Do you eat non-veg daily, you cook or buy from shops? What you cook on Sundays, anything special?[/b] Please respond and also share your valued opinion on this story. Kalyani September, 30, 2012.

Hi Kalyaniji, I guess most people like to eat non vegetarian food on Sundays except those who are pure vegetarians.It is the same in my house, although I dont eat meat I like fish and sea food which we have almost every day, so on Sundays we have either mutton or chicken, sometimes prawn.What you are doing is really good , I mean being non interfering, so there will no clash.as for your grand daughter,once she grows up she will take her own decisions as to whether she wants to remain a vegetarian or start eating non vegetarian food...all the best and have a nice day

Hello, Kalyni....Sometimes I will eat red meat but not a lot of it. I do like chicken and fish and eat that occasionally. I'm not a vegetarian in the strictest sense. I just like vegetables and pastas and rice more. My neighbor, whom I cook main meals for furnishes the food some of the time and she seems to always want meat such as pork and beef. She likes and buys more pork than any of the other meats. When I make those meals for her, I will have a small portion myself. Last evening I made sauteed onions, mushrooms with garlic and served it over linguine. That is one of my favorite meals and I'll add ground beef or shrimp occasionally. But my most favorite of all is a meal prepared with shrimp. I don't fry it. Just saute with snap peas in olive oil and serve with a jasmine rice.

Hi, I am vegetarian. I and my wife don;t eat meat. But we have only son to whom we don't impose restriction to eat non veg. He is living separately due to his job. He like to eat chicken. He is now 23 years old and if our daughter in law would be non vegetarian, we will allow her to cook non veg in the same kitchen but we can't eat it.

We can't impose things, they are matured, will take their own decision, and we must honor it

Hi Kalyni, I`m so glad to see you after so long! Two of my grandsons are vegetarians, but I have advised my daughter to tell the boys to cook for themselves if they don`t like what is being cooked for the rest. My daughter works all day and it is absurd that she changes her eating habits or work twice (my grandsons are 20 and 18). It worked very well. My 18 year old grandson has learned to cook some nice dishes and my daughter makes enough rice, potatoes or pasta for everyone. I cook all my food and I love to cook. I usually think that homemade food is better than restaurant food, even when it is a very good restaurant.

I have never been a vegetarian and I honestly don't think that it would be something that I would ever be able to do in my life. The reason that I wouldn't be able to do that is because of the fact that I grew up in a family where we were always fed some meat in our meals. Now that I have a family of my own, I do try to substitute other proteins for meat at least once a week because I know that it is good for us. But I couldn't imagine using two separate kitchens for my cooking.

Thanks for detailed response, if some one becomes vegetarian in your family, will not eat meat etc, then probably you may need another kitchen.

hi kal, my whole family are meat lovers. we enjoy chicken, ham, roasted pig, you name it. but we also have viands with vegies in it. there are even exotic food that mom cooks ones in a while. cooking depends on what the majority wants to eat. have a nice day. ann

I rarely eat meat. I eat meat once a week. I chose the fish instead of chicken / beef. I feel better for my health.
