    New to vegetarianism and Hinduism .

    Namaste , I am new to vegetarianism and Hinduism . I love this Hindu religion . There is a question on eating though . I can do without meat , no problem . Why are some of the vegetables basically not acceptable to eat , even though they have health benefits . I can give up onions and garlic even but the root foods mainly potato's I love . Is it absolutely necessary to give up these vegetables to live a good Hindu life in worship of Sri Krishna , Sri Vishnu , Sri Siva , Sri Laksmhi ....... ૐ
