Diet In Sikhism
In Sikhism, only vegetarian food is served in the Gurdwara (Sikh temple), but Sikhs are not bound to be meat-free. The general consensus is that Sikhs are free to choose whether to adopt a meat diet or not. Once Amrit is taken Sikhs are prohibited from eating Kutha or ritually-slaughtered (Halal, Kosher) meat.

Famous quotes containing the word diet:
“I learned from my two years experience that it would cost incredibly little trouble to obtain ones necessary food, even in this latitude; that a man may use as simple a diet as the animals, and yet retain health and strength.... Yet men have come to such a pass that they frequently starve, not for want of necessaries, but for want of luxuries.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
