One should not judge the purity or impurity of man simply by observing what he eats.

"If one craves after any kind of food, or kills to satisfy his greed for meat, this is wrong. But if one eats without greed and without directly being involved in the act of killing but merely to sustain the physical body, he is practicing self restraint." Sadhu. I've heard that if we eat the flesh of an animal WITH CRAVING and delight in it's taste and do not see the disgusting nature of our food, or achieve equanimity and dispassion towards it's taste, texture and appearance; then we are not practicing to know and see the true nature of food. I've heard that the human body is the result of unwholesome kamma and craving; and so It requires unwholesome dhammas (food) to sustain it's sustenance.
