Josephina’s Vegetarian Trivia *
Many great geniuses engaged in vegetarian diets, like Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Edward Witten, and others. Could it be that they were seeking out a good physique and strength, which many attribute to being a vegetarian? Alternatively, is it that vegetarian foods are less harsh on the digestive organs? Maybe vegetarian foods encourage and produce great intellectual growth.
Thomas Edison was a genius and one of America’s greatest inventors of all time. He was a supporter of the vegetarian life style. He stated, “Vegetarianism has a powerful influence upon the health and vigor of the body mind and its action, as well as upon the health.” He was leaning toward the idea that vegetarianism could be of great benefit to human health and increase the life expectancy.
Albert Einstein, viewed as the greatest scientist of the 20th century and a genius among men, was a vegetarian. Edison and Einstein both seem to have shared the desire for humans to become more vegetarian friendly during their meals. He once wrote as an entry in his diary, “So I am living without fats, without meat, without fish, but feeling quite well this way. It always seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore.”
Edward Witten, viewed by many as a genius and even as Einstein’s successor, was a vegetarian. Many in the science arena have recognized him as a renowned string theorist and mathematician, with abilities unmatched by most humans.
The last but not least of the geniuses that I will mention in Josephina’s vegetarian kitchen corner, is Brian Greene. This genius was Witten’s protege and challenged Einstein’s theory that space can stretch but not tear. When Greene was only nine years old, he could multiply thirty digit numbers. A great man in our time, former President Bill Clinton, is now a practicing vegan.
A long trip back through time will take us to, two other geniuses of their time. Their names are Sir Isaac Newton and Leonardo Da Vinci. I know I have not even scratched the surface of the long list of other, accomplished geniuses that were and are vegans or vegetarians. I hope that this will be just enough to spark your interest, to do some research yourself. Today we have some young and up coming accomplished geniuses that are vegetarians. A few of these young geniuses are already making their mark in the world of accomplishments. If you want to know the names of these individuals, you will have to do a little research on your own!
Maybe these great geniuses knew better than most, how very important it is to the human body to eliminate meat, whenever possible and add many vegetables to the menu!
MIND CHALLENGING TRIVIA *********************************** VEGAN & VEGETARIAN REVIEWS
Josephina’s Vegetarian Kitchen Corner Brownie and Cookie Review ********
****JUST IN TIME FOR THAT AFTER SCHOOL HEALTHY SNACK ****
The dessert menu can get challenging sometimes for everyone, especially for vegans and vegetarians. I will attempt to give some suggestions for that sweet treat you may be looking for. I can suggest that online you can find some of the best brownies and cookies, to satisfy the taste buds of most vegans and vegetarians.
I was able to find some delicious gourmet brownies, filled with a rich moist chocolate flavor. You would never know they were vegan brownies, made from 100% organic ingredients. These brownies were even gluten free, which many vegans and vegetarians are looking for. These brownies would satisfy any brownie lover, not just vegans, and vegetarians.
I also found some SCRUMPTIOUS vegan cookies online, by browsing through many varieties. Josephina’s choice cookies are online, made with mostly all organic ingredients. Many of the cookies I found are dairy- free, for those vegans avoiding dairy products. The flavors are out of this world, ranging from butterscotch, key lime, chocolate, chip, peppermint, pumpkin, and many other flavors. There are many varieties of cookies online, to fill the need for a tasty treat, you just have to invest a little time searching. I am sure you will find just the right cookie that will give you great satisfaction with every bite!
Another piece of trivia is that Oreo cookies made by Nabisco in the US are vegan. Cocoa, a product used to make these delicious cookies, along with the other vegan ingredients used, are made without any animal flesh or animal by products in the process. They do not use dairy or eggs in the making of these cookies. I guess you can say they are vegan & vegetarian friendly!
