Healthy Dieting – A Vegetarian Option

There are numerous diets that can be recommended. However, according to Rev. George H. Malkmus, creator and proponent of the Hallelujah diet, a balanced diet without animal protein, should consist of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain, and such. The Hallelujah diet completely removes the “five white substances” – which are cow’s milk, refined sugar, refined wheat flour, common salt; and also animal fat – from daily food intake. These foods can be replaced with:

1. Plant derived milk, for example rice milk or creamy banana milk,
2. Honey in moderation,
3. Wholegrain flour,
4. Sea salt in moderation, and
5. Plant-derived oil – examples are coconut oil, olive oil.

A daily menu should look like this:


Eat only fresh fruits, or freshly extracted vegetable or fruit juices – no baked or cooked food allowed before noon. Fruits and fruit juices digest easily and are energizers as well as body cleansers. Certain category of people like diabetics and cancer patients should avoid fruits until it is advised. Also, people on certain medication should consult with their doctor as some fruits may interfere with their drugs. Vegetable juices are better for them such as carrot juice or mixed vegetable juices.


For lunch a cooked meal is recommended and will include whole grains. However, it is a good idea to eat some raw salads without chemical additives (salad creams) before the cooked meal. This meal can be interchanged with supper.


For supper a large bowl of raw vegetable salad is in. Your salad dressing can be made at home with the help of good salad dressing recipe books available on the market. Mayonnaise is made from eggs, oil, and additives which are not helpful. You can use vegenaise from instead of mayonnaise. The salad should be a large helping of raw vegetables that you can afford. Raw vegetables are best for nutrition – especially the green leafy vegetables and the bright deeply colored ones. The deeper the colors, the higher the nutrients; the brighter the colors, the more the beta carotene they contain. Obesity is alien to people on this diet.

Snacks should include fresh fruits and raw nuts like apple, banana, orange, and mango, garden egg, carrot, walnut, raw almond, and so on.

Garden eggs are antiseptic, diuretic, and haemostatic. It is effective in removing colitis, constipation, bleeding, hemorrhoids, pain, hypertension, stomach ulcers, swelling, and tumors. It contains potassium, bioflavonoid, and is about 90% water.

To avoid dehydration drink plenty of water and exercise regularly. Get enough sleep to refresh and rejuvenate your body. You will feel good and radiate health.
