This is so interesting! My DH's mother and stepdad were Buddhist;they have both passed on, we had to make sure both had proper Buddhist funeals. In cleaning out their house, I came across a small library of books on the subject, which I read with great interest. I would have thought all Buddhists would be strictly vegetarian since they do not believe in violence, no killing of any sentient being and no use of animal products(meat,daily, eggs, leather, etc) But yet it seems to depend upon the sect what the diet will be, at least according to our Buddhist minister. Please let us know how it goes.
p.s. The only thing I can advise, I would be careful of sugar substitutes using Swerve; I don't think alchlol is allowed, plus it caused horrible gastrointestinal problems for me personally:-(
