Sounds like you are a lacto-vegetarian.
It all comes down to your ability to get quality protein and fats. Which I don't think would be too hard, as long as you are getting lots of butter/cream/milk/yoghurt.
Traditional indian foods are awesome and tasty ways to eat these.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

Would you be polite and suggest some aspirin?
People are way to polite about religion. If she was avoiding healthy foods for political reasons, nobody would hesitate to confront it, but religion gets a free pass because it requires "faith". What an entirely overrated concept.
I wasn't trying to debate religion, just raising an important question that needed to be put out there.

Just go away. "The question" does not need to be put out there. If you can't add anything constructive, just ignore and move on to the next thread.
You SERIOUSLY think someone's going to read your little rant and say: "Ta da! I've decided to stop being traditional Hindu!" Of course not. Which is what makes you a jackass.
Perhaps you could consider why your religion forbids certain foods and decide for yourself whether some of it is man made custom as opposed to having a spiritual purpose in line with your religion? Will eating certain foods actually hinder your soul, or is it more a cultural custom?
I am not religious myself, but if you are already considering eggs, there may be other foods that won't contradict your religion if you consider the reasoning behind it - something for you to ponder, maybe?
What about insects? They are high in protein. . .
