A Lenten Parable

Two Orthodox Christian friends were eating their brown bagged lunches together during Great Lent. The one had a bowl of spiced lentils and bread, the other a veggie burger. The man eating lentils told his friend, "I never eat any tofu meat substitutes. It's less spiritual, and doesn't keep the spirit of the fast." His friend shrugged his shoulders and said nothing.

Now I ask you, which of these men kept the spirit of the fast?
