Overview of Christianity Dietary Restrictions

Most Christians eat both meat and vegetables. They do not object to eating a certain meat of an animal unless they are vegan or vegetarian or when it is Lent, the 40 days preceding Easter. Some Christians choose to fast on Fridays or not eat meat on Fridays because of Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified and died. Instead, they might eat fish or vegetables. Additionally, the Holy Communion of the Eucharist, is symbolically celebrated using wine and bread as the "body and blood" of Christ.


Many Christians give up meat for Lent. Therefore, I have created a menu that gives up meat. (Fish is the exception. Christians eat fish instead of meat from other animals.)
