This is a Vedic reminder to oneself that one should eat only those foods that are offered to God. Each time you offer food to God, it is a reminder to you to change your decision and choices. For example, alcohol, tobacco, onion, garlic, radish, etc. are not offered to God. If they are part of your food, there are chances that you will not consume these food items, if you observe this ritual.

Over a period of time people have stopped following this ritual and now eat some foods, which cannot be offered to God in all their 21 meals during a week. This is the reason why the incidence of lifestyle diseases is increasing in the community.
