Always a lively topic, join us for more discussion of food and diet practices. In our constant search for food, we often overlook the impact of food on our energy level. In this session, we’ll expand our concept of mindful eating and take a close look at the sattvic diet favored by yogis.
“When eaten in a regular and balanced manner, when not overeaten, food is a source of energy. Overindulgence in food de-energizes us. Food eaten in moderate amounts leaves less residue to block the energy channels of the body. One of the most debilitating and de-energizing factors causing inertia is the residue of foods left in the body which are not properly assimilated or cleaned out. Irregular eating, constant nibbling and eating between meals do not allow the system sufficient time to rest, assimilate and clean house. If the dead cells and phlegmatic flows are not eliminated, if the putrid stuff just lying in the internal organs is never removed, a de-energizing, debilitating, tamasic influence is exerted on the nerves and the mind.” – Swami Veda Bharati, Himalayan News, April 1978
