Vegetarianism

The term ‘Vegetarian’ does not come from the word vegetable as you might think but from the Latin vegetus which means ‘lively’ and physically vigorous……describing how the people who eat a vegetarian diet feel. Multitude of rigorous scientific studies have proven the health benefits of the vegetarian diet. Recent researches have demonstrated that vegetables play a key role in helping to protect body against cancer and heart disease. And it seems the more fruit and vegetables we eat the greater the protective element while boosting health and vitality.

At Srinathjis, we believe in food as a philosophy and vegetarianism as a way of life.According to the Vedas, food is categorized into three types: tamasic, rajasic and sattvic. As the Bhagavad-Gita mentions, sattvic food is the purest of the three, creating positive vibrations,cleansing both body and mind, that promote ‘happiness and satisfaction’.

We uphold this principle at Srinathjis, and prepare our food according to ancient Vedic customs that pay tribute to the inherent spirituality that exemplifies Indian cooking. The sattvic cuisine of Srinathjis satisfies the senses, captivates the mind and enriches the soul. Prepared from the freshest ingredients and rich in nutrients, the food is as nutritious as it is delectable. Our mission is to make you aware of the incredible health benefits of the total vegetarian karma free lifestyle.

Today, with increasing evidence of diet’s critical effect on good health and longevity, more and more people are investigating this question: Is the human body better suited to a vegetarian diet or one that includes meat?

In the search for answers, two areas should be considered – the anatomical structure of the human body, and the physical effects of meat consumption.
