Can you train a cat to be a vegetarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I would doubt it, as they don't have the digestive system necessary to survive on pant-matter, but as my cat can attest, they can and do eat vegetation (like fruit), probably to supplement vitamins absent in meat.

Why are Jains vegetarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Jains believe in ahimsa, or nonviolence. To stop the cycle of reincarnation, Jains believe that they must follow the path of ahimsa. If they do not behave as their religion dictates, they believe that their next life could be as a lower animal. Thus they do not kill any animal because it could have been their ancestor, etc. But primarily, because they believe in preventing the suffering of all who feel pain.

Why are some animals vegetarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Plants are far more abundant on the Earth than animals, so it is much easier for a large animal needing a lot of food to obtain that food from plant sources than from animal sources. However, the very largest animals, baleen whales, actually eat tiny sea creatures from the animal kingdom. They strain this "krill" from the seawater with the baleen in their mouths which they have in place of teeth. Krill is mainly baby shrimp.

On land, small animals can scurry about and be hard to catch, but plants hold still, so a large and clumsy grazing animal can fill up on plants without investing a lot of energy in catching its prey. Some large land animals, such as bears, will catch and eat other large land animals when they are available.

In the sea, there are giant sharks, seals, toothed whales, and squid which are carnivorous, so not all giant creatures are vegetarians. However, large fierce predators are rare compared to grazing animals.

Is jam vegetarian?

Depends on the jam! If it has gelatin, NO. If it has ingredients that you cannot tell what they are, go to PETA's website and look for their list of items that you wouldn't otherwise know were not vegetarian or vegan.

Does vegetarian vegetable soup require refrigeration for food safety purposes?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is not how "long" but more as the "temperature" of the soup. If the soup falls between the range of 41°F (5°C) - 135°F (57°C) than bacterial growth can occur. This is according to FDA Food Code. This is also a standard to any types of food!

Keep colds food COLD, and hot foods HOT!

Eat safe!

Is Campbell's chunky savory vegetable soup vegetarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It may contain chicken or beef broth, which is not vegetarian to most vegetarians.

Vegetarians should check the label, but keep in mind that bouillon is not vegetarian. If it is vegetarian, these ingredients will not be listed.

Note: The regular (not the "healthy") version of Campbell's Chunky Savory Vegetable appears to be vegetarian. Ingredients are: water, carrots, potatoes, celery, tmato puree, peas, green beans, diced tomatoes in tomato juice, corn, modified food starch, salt, vegetable extract, high fructose corn syrup, hydrolized wheat gluten, dehydrated onions, flavoring, spice. "Flavoring" could be ambiguous.

The "Healthy Request" version of the same soup contains beef fat, however.

Which alcoholic drinks are vegetarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The kind you like. There is no requirement that you drink a specific wine with any specific meal. While it is typically a red wine with read meats and white wines with fish and poultry, it is a guideline, not a mandate.

I would suggest something along the lines of a nice rose and split the difference!

Is ricotta cheese suitable for vegetarians?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, eating cheese is not eating meat.

It might have rennet (a coagulant) in it, which can be derived from either animal (most common) or vegetable sources. So, depending on how strictly vegetarian you are, you may or may not want to eat ricotta. You can try going on the company's website to see if if specifies the coagulant's source.

By law, all vegetarian products in the UK must be symbolised with a green V on the packaging so they can easily be spotted by vegetarians.

What are some interesting vegetarian recipes?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Sugo classico is good. Just heat olive oil, fry onions and garlic (and leeks if you have them; vegetarian bacon is also good ) and then add a splash of wine and a couple of tins of good Italian chopped - and unflavoured - tomatoes or a 700ml bottle of passata.

You could, before the wine, put in any vegetables you like and fry them for a bit. Let it all simmer with the wine and tomatoes for as long as you possibly can, and in the last half hour when you've lost patience, throw in some dried basil (not fresh basil).

Now get your pasta cooking and within twenty minutes it'll all be ready. Add some unsalted butter to your sauce, to smooth it down once you turn the heat off; this will not be much butter at the finish because the proportion isn't large to the proportion of sauce. Drain the pasta in a colander, move it into a glass bowl, add the sauce and serve, with freshly grated cheese on the side.

Fresh herbs such as basil can go on top. Do bear in mind that the style of pasta you use should suit the sauce. So, a chunky sauce should be served with a short pasta such as spirali, while a smooth sauce goes well with long pasta such as spaghetti or tagliatelli. Always match your pasta to your sauce; it's easy!

What candies contain gelatin?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

These do not contain gelatin:

Sour Patch Kids

Swedish fish (one of the few 'gummy' candies that doesn't contain gelatin)

Hershey's Milk Chocolate (most chocolate candy doesn't contain gelatin)

Life Savers (not the gummy ones), Jolly Rancher, and most hard candies

Different manufacturers may use different ingredients to make what seems the same as others like it but you can never be sure unless you read the ingredients of each product you choose.

Is peanut vegetarian?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In botanical terms it is considered a legume, which is a fruit. In culinary terms it is considered to be a plant cultivated for an edible part, therefore a vegetable.

Botanically speaking, it is a fruit, since the seeds are contained within a pod, even though that pod develops underground. Peanuts are somewhat unique within the legume family due to their geocarpy (fruit develops underground).
a peanut is a vegetable cause of the way it grows and what not, but to everyone who's saying its just a nut or its a fruit your wrong!
