Extending your yoga practice to the dinner table is a yogic diet, “These are ingredients that enhance clarity and lightness, keeping the body light and nourished and the mind clear,” In other words, a diet that offers your body a great basis for practice.
In the Ayurvedic tradition, foods that are considered sattvic include most vegetables, ghee (clarified butter), fruits, legumes, and whole grains. In contrast, tamasic foods (such as onions, meat, and garlic) and rajasic foods (such as coffee, hot peppers, and salt) can increase dullness or hyperactivity, respectively. But maintaining a diet that keeps your body light and your mind clear doesn’t necessarily mean eating only sattvic foods.
Choices are not only about serving yourself but also serving the earth and the world in an authentic way.
Choosing organically and humanely produced meats.
What feeds the body and spirit, developing a diet that reflects your ethics and honors your physical needs can be challenging. In the end most yogis would agree that part of the practice is to develop awareness about what you eat. It’s essential to listen to yourself so that you’ll know what kinds of foods might serve you best . But, as you explore the yogic diet, allow for some flexibility. “Remember, yoga is about freedom, including freedom from your own strong beliefs and ideas.
