This reminded me of Dr Robert Cassar. link text
I don't know exactly what I think yet, but he seems pretty healthy and fit with many a muscle and so on. And as far as I'm aware he eats pretty much just plant super foods.
Who knows, maybe our genetics can shift to that way of eating. I know that I do better with tons of veggies and not so much meat. But then again, I've been eating dairy too.
It's something interesting to think about, anyway. Perhaps if we were to evolve to eat in that way, it'd be to help ease our consciences if nothing else. I know some people feel guilty eating meat. Though, I know that being vegan doesn't mean no animals are being killed for the production of your plant food, either.
Maybe what it all comes down to is our own personal guilt/conscience/mind. If we can clear our minds of guilt then we can be full of love and evolve higher spiritually, no matter what we eat. Or... some people think that as we evolve spiritually, we'll naturally stop eating meat, because we're evolved.
I'm not sure which way it is. I'm actually maybe leaning towards the former. I'll just keeping doing what I think is right, and try not to feel guilty, because I really love that quote:
In the presence of guilt, your love cannot direct and refine the process of nourishment. The food chain is a fact of life that has been agreed upon by all life forms for the duration of its necessity. Many life forms have chosen that for their loving service.
Also, if you were to go the Christian route:
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. ...
1 Corinthians 8:13
Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble.
1 Corinthians 10:25
Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience.
1 Corinthians 10:31
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
So that makes me think it's more of a conscience thing. We allow ourselves to be enlightened spiritually by not letting our ego's get in the way. If you just open yourself up to love and be thankful for things and your conscience tells you you are doing right, then I think that's the best you can do, and you will be much healthier than someone who is ridden by guilt. I think we really do take in more nourishment when we are happy. A sick mind makes a sick body.
