Halimah,

As far as I know, Buddhist vegetarians do not take eggs and dairy products. MIL does not take these 2 items when she is on vegetarian (1st & 15th of every Chinese calendar month).

My MIL can now take eggs but still no dairy. Sometimes I wonder if she really understood all the beliefs and culture of Buddhism as she is illiterate and needed people to explain the scriptures to her.

Zu

I am very confused about the food and Buddhism bit. Last time she cannot take eggs and dairy. Now she can take eggs but still no dairy. I would assume its either one or none. As eggs, like milk or cheese are by-products of animals.

the logic my MIL told me its no animals and animal by-products. Means no eggs, no milk, or milk related food like cheese, butter, etc.

Now I am getting more confused see stars

I thought no eggs because it's supposed to have life in it. Eating eggs means that you are 'killing' the life in it by not letting it be born.

yeaps... I also thought that was the case.. diary is okie but no eggs cos it has life in it...

I suppose there is no straight forward answer... and really depends on the version that they want to follow...

hi Gina,

While searching for a almond butter cake, saw your post, I think I replace the ground hazelnut with ground almond, cos have leftover almond powder from baking the almond cookies.. and also also extra black sesame seeds..

Thanks for the recipe.. Smile love

Regards
