Temple food is truly a culinary and a spiritual experience, which ultimately helps us become healthy, and at peace with ourselves, others, and our planet.
Temple food is based on the food and the diet of Buddhist monks, which has been in practice for more than 2,000 years.
Based on the philosophy of Buddhism, temple food is completely vegetarian, vegan, and environmentally friendly, as they believe in non-violence and the right to life for all living creatures. Therefore, it involves no meat or dairy of any kind.
Temple food is naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, and low in calories. It uses only whole and real ingredients, and spices for flavoring. And, it never uses any kind of artificial additives or products. It also incorporates the ancient method of fermentation to preserve food and reap health benefits, such as probiotics, which has been scientifically proven to have phenomenal health attributes.
Temple food is gaining popularity, as many Asians and non-Asians alike are seeking a healthier diet, that is basic, simple, natural, easy, and spiritual. One of the characteristic of temple food is that it nourishes our bodies, as well as our souls with compassion, gratitude, respect, and enlightenment.
