VEGETARIANS

During my first week in Peru, I happened to attend a meeting about vegetarian cooking. It was held at a vegan restaurant, not far from downtown Chiclayo.

The lecturer was a nutritionist who spoke only Spanish. Among other things, she emphasized the importance of two nutrients: spirulina and salvia Hispanica commonly known as chia.

Hung at the entrance of the restaurant was a board on which famous people were portrayed.

Richard Gere, Leonardo Di Caprio, Brad Pitt and all the others on the board are vegetarian, even Albert Einstein was a vegetarian.

As for me, I am not totally vegetarian, but I have reduced meat intake by ninety percent. My aim is to eliminate meat from my diet completely.

A meat-free diet is beneficial to health and shows love and respect for all living creatures.

Ettore Grillo, author of these books:

– The Vibrations of Words

– Travels of the Mind
