Bear with me here folks. I know what the EU has said on this, and I am actually wondering if the boat has been missed more than once. Being as the Jedi have more than a little influence from Shaolin warrior monks and Taoist swordsmen, I cant help but wonder if GL's intent was that they be vegetarian. The only beings we actually see eating animals in the films are non-human and not Jedi. On the flip side, we have three instances of Jedi eating and each instance the food is plants or fruit. TPM: dinner with Anakin and Shmi. All we see is a bowl of fruit (mostly plums) on the table in front of Qui-Gon and Jar-Jar. AOTC: romantic dinner with Anakin and Padmé. Again, fruit. A pear is particuularly central to this one. TESB: dinner with Yoda. Rootleaf stew. I always felt Dark Rendezvous really missed the boat on Yoda, making a spectacle of Yoda allegedly eating snakes and lizards against film evidence, and indeed the SW.com databank entry for "Yoda's hut" at the time that said Yoda sustained himself from what the planet provided... which is generally a euphemism for what grows from the planet... and made not of rootleaf stew. Are there examples or counter-examples in TCW? I know in the micro-series we have Anakin slurping up worms and crunching on cockroaches, and Obi-Wan seeming very disgusted not just with the cuisine but with Anakin distorting his teaching about sustaining himself with the Living Force. Perhaps it's my own veganism causing me to project. Then again, perhaps it is the non-vegetarianism of EU authors that has caused them to overlook thos detail in the films. Thoughts? Thread locked at OP's request. It's run its course. The main course, anyway.
