Jain religious restrictions

the yearly jain holiday 'paryushana' also known as 'das lakshana' is coming soon. And I'm bored of the regular indian recipes (tomato saabzi etc). I want something different.
restrictions include:
-no root veggies (potatoes, onions, carrots, garlic, lettuce,broccolli, basically anything that when you pick it, you kill the entire plant)

- no alcohol, meat, seafood, eggs

milk + cheese is allowed (just no cheese w/animal rennet)

I can't think of any other restrictions of the top of my head. any ideas?
