Yogananda's "Proper Meat Substitutes"



Hi all,

What was Yogananda referring to when he talked about

Nayaswami Diksha

Dear Cyril,

In How to Achieve Glowing Health and Vitality Yogananda refers to: nuts and seeds as meat substitutes. He refers especially to nuts such as almonds, walnuts, cashews as meat substitutes. Of course all legumes (lentils and beans) are great substitutes for meat.

I hope this answers your question.

Joy to you,

Diksha McCord
