when i first come into sikhi it really helped when i used to eat veg chicken burgers veg saugages to help intrigrate with the rehait. but i stopped becuase "MY" own beliefs were that if ive given up eating meat how can i justify eating a veggy chicken burger, am doing this for the taste. this is going back a few years

but this week a gora co worker was talking about a smokeless cigarate, it contains water vapour so could we not justify smoken that ?

(not saying im gonna take up smoken this new cigarate) it got me thinking about these veggie burgers

just wonder what the sangats take was on this topic

If it has tobacco, then you shouldn't really have to ask. :\

Cigarettes have a lot of gandh in there that mess up your body. Guru Gobind SIngh Ji instructed Sikhs to take care of their sareer.

Bhaji, I believe we eat any food for the taste as much as for survival. A vegetarian has a preference to certain dishes as his tastes dictate, so he is following his taste buds as much as a non- vegetarian. We have to decide ourselves to give up the food because of an intrinsic,personally intuitive value, as it goes against our conscience i.e killing of sentient being.Even though the taste of the animal food may be admitted as favourable, the actual detriment to the conscience outweighs the taste factor. However eating a veggie chicken burger absolves me of the guilt/reasoning of eating animal food, but allows the pleasure of the artificial flavouring of the dish.

As for the smokeless cigarate it has no value as to my physical survival, smoking tobacco is just a habit acquired through mental conditioning, and learned social behaviour. It is neither necessary as an aid to my survival or to the well- being of my physical/mental development, as such it has no value in my life.Smokeless cigarate containing water vapour would only be of value to a person breaking the destructive and obsessive bad habit of smoking tobacco/nicotine.

Do the vegetarian burgers and other types of "meat but really veg" dishes taste like their real meat counterparts? I ate them when I was young but because I've never tasted actual meat I can't compare them to the real thing in terms of taste. However I don't eat even these kind of burgers anymore. Processed foods are not good even if they are vegetarian.

I actually tried some veg chicken burger at someone's house and I could have sworn it tasted like a chicken sandwich. It was good.

It's a good start for kids or someone new to Sikhi and slowly as they learn more about Sikhi and they are ready, they will automatically stop caring about taste.

I will never even try to eat these soybean made artificial meat tasting vege products. Sure it is vege and stuff but my mind will never agree to eat em.. Agree with singh559 that it might be good for someone who is new to sikhi and wanna get away from meat.. to all amrekan ppl.. go to Trader Joe and get the Masala Burger patties.. those are delicious..

Soya chunks taste like chicken. The meat tastes good, so you can buy replicated 'Bacon' Sausages etc. But that does not mean you enjoy indulging in eating meat, after all it's just the flavouring in the latter.

There's nothing wrong with eaten flavoured quorn or soya. My sister eats this stuff for protein and never once has she eaten meat, nor will she do so. It is a valuable source of protein - something that is limited in vegetarians.

Those substitute cigarettes still contain nicotine in order to satisfy the craving and should be avoided unless you are trying to give up smoking.
