We all know the caffeine thing.  (Actually, one of the funny little side
comments from the movie "Singles Ward" is about how his girlfriend is less
than enthusiastic about him because she found a couple of empty Dr. Pepper
bottles in his car.  Ya gotta see this movie if you haven't!)

I clearly didn't mean that it meant that we should be vegetarians (given my
signature line).  However, I think that the meaning is quite clear, and that
we would probably all do better, and receive more blessings, if we followed
the WoW a little more closely than we do (myself included).  And I do not

I think it means what it says, but the point is that modern-day prophets
defined what the WoW means for us. I'll give you an example. Many people
assume it

that we
take would be verboten. Is decaff okay? No. Clearly we're not to drink
coffee or
(green/black) tea. That's what it means, not "no caffeine." We tend to get
down in unimportant details.

But in any case the phrase you quote doesn't mean vegetarianism, as a
will eat no meat, not just "eat meat sparingly."
