Become a Veggie? HEll No!

Yesterday the doctor did some god knows what medical test on me. The only test that I was familiar was the blood test. Well today I went to get my medical test reports. The doctor was telling me that everything was ok, except that my blood count or rating was low. He told me that there is no specific medicine to prescribe. But he recommended me to stay in bed and drink lots of liquid, like water and fruit juice, plus avoid non-veg.

BUT Avoid non-veg.. How can a tiger eat veggies.. It’s almost impossible. Am a carnivore since birth…Its in my blood..Avoiding meat would be like a crime. I don’t mind drinking lots of liquid, because I drink at least drink two liters of beer in a day, if I try I can increase it to 5 liters of beers in a day.. But come on ‘Become A VEGGIE’….

I tried my best pushing the doctor to find an alternative like drinking more liquid but not to avoid MEAT!! Well there were no alternatives. I even tried bribing him (I read it somewhere that in India you can bribe almost anyone and get away with even the cruelest crime..) But believe me this Doctor was different (maybe the guide book I was reading was written by an idiot). Since I want to get well soon, think I have to obey to what the doctor is recommending.

My three day experience in New Delhi is good, besides my health. You won’t believe this. Last night I met a guy, should say a fellow metal head. Who is a friend of my friend! He came to meet my friend. After chatting with him, he offered me that if I want; he can take me sightseeing on Saturday in his bike… Which mean, if I go sightseeing with this guys, I won’t be spending a single penny on transportation.. But kind of scared as riding a bike on Delhi streets is very risky… People here have very less sense on driving… But the offer is so tempting that I will have to think about it..

Here is a picture of a Gurdwara that i took just ten minutes back from my mobile camera. The Gurdwara is located somewhere between the flat where i am staying and the Clinic. It looks more beautiful in real.

    NO meat? Dude, that's rough! And there's nothing worse than when you're told you CAN'T have something...it just makes you want it all the more.

  18. Do visit 'Nainital' if possible [It's a hill station near Delhi] and Ladakh [North]..it has asia's highest motorable road and khardungla glacier.
    Most important - Be aware of Auto Rickshaw Drivers and vendors. They can make a fool out of you.. by charging you double.
    Also, try non veg dishes like butter chicken, Hyderabadi Biriyani, Mutton Korma, Mutton kofta [Meat balls] (Only when you are allowed to eat non vegetarian again).
    You get nice indian dresses, junk jewellery and handicraft item in Delhi and Rajasthan.
    There are Large number of metal heads in East India. I hope this helps :)

  19. Wild Child that was heap of an information.. I have heard of Ladakh. But unfortunately i won't be able to make it there. Limited time! Will surely try Mutton Korma and Mutton kofta but i'll also make sure that only when the Doctor says i can!

    I will be traveling to north-East India may be by the middle of Next Month. Eager to met other metal head. ! have met some metal heads yesterday here in Delhi!
    Thanks for all the information!

  20. You are most welcome. I hope you like those dishes as well. They are spicy.
    There are quiet a few metal heads in Delhi.
    And I'm sure you'll meet other metal heads in North East very soon. \m/

  24. Sounds like a fantastic trip. Here's hoping you feel much better soon and are able to fully enjoy it. At least sounds like you'll have lots of non-meat options. Should help the time fly by faster until you can have your steak.

  25. I have been vegetarian for 6 years, and am so much healthier. Not only is it better for you and better for the environment, but I am totally against killing helpless animals. Listen to the doc; he knows from whence he speaks. Give it a try and keep an open mind. There are so many good things to eat that are not dead animals. Good luck!

  26. I spent several years as a Vegan. I loved it. You DO have to work at it, preparing tasty veggie meals with well balanced nutrition takes study, time and commitment. Buy it is a satisfying diet if done right. I eat meat now, but can still enjoy a meatless meal.

    Neat post.

  27. You know they make all kinds of veggie things to taste like meat! Grill yourself a veggie burger, or veggie sausage! You can do it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. If you can't avoid all meat... keep away from red meat.. you need protein in your diet to maintain a healthy white blood cell count and promote healing.. and that is the easiest way to get it.... hmmm..

    ReplyDelete
  29. Dude you should try to avoid meat for some days
