List and advice from
Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan)
“ If you really want to have less karma and cause less pain,
less suffering and less sorrow for the plants, you can choose.
You can select some special plants or special fruits to eat.
I have done a little research into the kinds of vegetables and fruits that have no pain at all or very little pain. […] ”

thank all the noble beings who bless your food,

have good digestion and be healthy.
Even the no-pain plants, you also should thank them.”
