ASH WEDNESDAY - 2010
I noticed someone using the search engines asking if eggs were OK when abstaining from meat, and the answer to that is yes. Eggs and seafood are acceptable. One thing to avoid though is going out to a nice seafood restaurant for Ash Wednesday or Fridays of Lent (any Fridays for that matter). The abstinence is intended to be somewhat of a sacrifice - and to go out to a fancy restaurant sort of turns that into a celebratory meal.
For more information on fasting and abstinence, please check on some of the articles I've already provided here:
Ash Wednesday and Fridays of Lent:
ONE full meal - TWO smaller meals and the two smaller meals, if combined should not equal one full meal.
NO MEAT! Whereas the abstinence from meat can be something else throughout the rest of the year (you still are required to offer up SOMETHING on EVERY FRIDAY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!) during Lent it MUST be meat which is offered up (abstained from) on Ash Wednesday and Fridays during Lent (unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday). NO SNACKING BETWEEN MEALS!
