In the aforementioned situation, the person [who is away from his own area] should regard all available grains as legitimate. The fastidious who say that you should not eat any particular grain are wrong. All grains are pure. Only the eater can be impure. In his company, the best food is rendered impulse and everyone spits it out. 1.

All edible root-crops are permitted. All that grows form the goodness of the soil is fit to be eaten. 2.

All such greens are permitted. 3.

Eat as many of these [vegetables] as may agree with you. 4.

One must take care when eating meat, however, and likewise fish. Note that wild animals may be eaten. Those which are killed with a weapon should be regarded as pure. 5.

[Domestic animals] which are not hunted but are nevertheless killed with a single blow (jhatka) may [also] be eaten. Even though the animal is only wounded by the initial bow, its flesh may nevertheless be eaten [when it is dead]. 6.

A diseased animal, however, must never be eaten. To do so would be abominable. [Its flesh would be] thoroughly polluted, regardless of whether it be killed in the chase, felled with a single blow, wounded [with a single], or has its throat cut [in the Muslim style]. All of these, if diseased, are banned. 7.
