What do starving people eat?: "People who find themselves nearly habitually starving eat whatever they can find. To make a wide-based assumption, starving people often eat rice or grain based products. If they are lucky, they may receive UN food rations, or any sort of charitable food donation. If not, they scrounge up leftover food waste. As nourishment is necessary to survive, starving people will eat anything to simply survive the night.

These three food items apparently contain all the essential ingredients to maintain the health of the body. He did concede however, that such a diet would be tedious, boring and monotonous.

For a taste explosion and olfactory interest I added powdered garlic, sweet basil, curry, and what I determined by taste was "too much" canola oil and soy sauce. Frustrated with my error, I collected all the ingredients and decided to make an "egg beaters" omelette in the morning. From a purely karmic perspective, I still feel pretty good about the effort, since kamma is "intentional action" and shouldn't include culinary screw-ups.
My question is, aside from dilution being the solution to pollution, which I am going to do by combining the meal with eggs for breakfast this morning, what do others recommend for preventing ruination of an otherwise wonderful vegan meal?
