Vegetarian Supplement to Scientific Feeding (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Vegetarian Supplement to Scientific FeedingThis book has been prepared to meet the needs of a constantly increasing number who for various reasons have adopted a vegetarian or near vegetarian diet.My experiences first as a nurse, later as a physician, have brought me in contact with many different nationalities, and from them has been gleaned much valuable information which has been used in the hope of aiding all who are earnestly seeking a safe and sane method of living, simple and rational methods of using vegetarian foods.It has been my special object to eliminate artificial sugar in the recipes as much as possible, also to pay special attention to correct chemical food combinations which are as important as their proper selection and preparation.My endeavor has been to perfect a system of hygienic feeding which avoids all such mixtures as tend to over-load the system with excess of starch and soft nitrogenous foods an excess which results in malnutrition and dangerous diseases.The book is designed for all who do not desire meat in their bill of fare. It will serve as a handbook for summer cookery, containing menus and recipes which are in harmony with the laws of health.In adopting a raw food diet, or in reducing heat-giving elements, such as artificial sugars and hot drinks, it is important to apply more external heat to the body for a while, or else have the morning meal served in a sunny room. Plenty of outdoor exercise is necessary to properly utilize a vegetarian diet.In the preparation of this volume I have been assisted by several friends who are interested in the publication of such a work.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
