LENT is classified as a season of spiritual cleansing and self-denial, reflecting the life of Jesus during his time. In this, we go back from the time of Jesus and meditate his struggle and sacrifice in the hands of the Romans. Because of this as we observe Lenten Week, we have a so-called Lenten diet. A diet that help transform people physically and spiritually. A Lenten diet is yearly observe by the Catholic church for 40 days. It is not for weight loss, but for spiritual purposes.




Here in the Philippines, we ask to avoid eating meat on the Fridays. The word meat does not include fish and seafood it only refers to flesh meat of warm blooded animals. In short, it should be meatless!

What are the Filipino food during Lenten Season? Well, we have the famous binignit, suman, biko, puto, and other native delicacies, but this year I change my menu plans. I want something healthy but still following the Catholic way, that is to avoid meat. And I come up with the idea to adapt the foreign way of celebrating Lenten Season. This is to change the traditional meal that been followed for many generations.

All of these are just my suggestion this Lenten Season. Again this is not a diet based on weight loss. It is an act of spiritual routine of Catholic that wanted to clean and be reborn of a period of time, it happened only once a year why not follow it religiously. And maybe, this will help improve your health if done consistently.

And for Easter Sunday..hmmm..It's time to eat food with meat...hahahaha ...  :) 

Bon appΓ©tit !!
