Feed Your Body And Soul With A Proper Yoga Diet

A proper yoga diet will help nourish your body as well as your soul. You’ve probably heard that a lot if you have been doing yoga for any length of time, but what’s important often bears repeating. The typical Western diet is just plain bad, what with all of those overly processed starches and sugars. The nutrients have been pretty much washed out of them. Even with store bought vegetables and fruit, by the time you eat them a large chunk of the vital nutrients have degraded. That’s why I favor locally sourced, organically grown produce if it’s available. To eat this way gives you the most nutrients with the fewest calories attached. Arseto has a nice article here that gives us some of his philosophical insights on nutrifying the yoga body and soul.

Feed Your Body And Soul With A Proper Yoga Diet

Basically a Yoga Diet is a totally vegetarian diet. The spiritual reason behind it is the fact that people who practice yoga gain some consciousness of mind which does not allow them to eat meat of living beings. They practice kindness to all animals and lay emphasis on the benefits of vegetarian diet.

Yoga Diet has been able to stand the test of time and has been around for a number of years. It primarily consists of whole grains, cereals, fresh vegetables and fruits. Practicing it not only takes care of your health but also helps in rejuvenating your soul and spirit. Also it helps you to lose weight and remain healthy, thus making you feel better.

Now you can see that a proper yoga diet is essential to keep your body and soul together. Maintaining our bodies gives our souls a good place to hang out. Try to go a little bit more organic and local. Not only does it benefit your health, it supports local growers and local businesses, and keeps your nutrition close to home.

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
