Vegetarianism encompasses the practice of following plant-based diets.
Vegetarianism can be adopted for different reasons. Many object to eating meat out of respect for life. Such ethical motivations have been codified under various religious beliefs, along with the concept of animal rights. Other motivations for vegetarianism include health, political, environmental, cultural, aesthetic or economic.
Various packaged or processed foods, including cake, chocolate, and marshmallows, often contain unfamiliar animal ingredients, and may be a special concern for vegetarians due to the likelihood of such additions.Vegetarians vary in their feelings regarding these ingredients, however. For example, while some vegetarians may be unaware of animal-derived rennet's role in the usual production of cheese and may therefore unknowingly consume the product, other vegetarians may not be bothered by its consumption.
Hare Krishnas members of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness are all vegetarians. They serve free vegetarian meals, called feasts, every Sunday wherever they have a group anywhere in the world. 'It's a kind of open house. you come alone or with your family...It's no small-time snack. Devotees have spent all day - sometimes more - cooking wonderfully varied dishes.' In needy areas, Hare Krishnas provide a vegetarian meal service throughout the week. 'Profuse distribution of prasadam, vegetarian food offered to Krsna, is integral to the Hare Krsna movement'.
