Food for Yoga

Food is my medication. It is the most scrumptious medicine for my health and happiness. OK, every so often I nonetheless get a ‘kick’ out of french fries, however I do analyze that the happiness I get from them only lasts a couple of minutes. And they don’t exactly make me feel wholesome!

As a Nutritionist I am particularly concerned about the over-acidity of current (western lifestyle) our bodies (and minds). It is critical to eat generally alkaline generating meals and avoid acidic foods. This mechanically cuts out a variety of sugar. You want to make sure that you eat good best meals, which affords you with sufficient proteins, carbohydrates and fats, nutrients, minerals and water.

A every day menu may want to seem like this:
After waking up – warm lemon honey water
Breakfast – clean juice, Quinoa porridge with seeds and natural bifidus yoghurt, inexperienced tea
Lunch – fresh salad with nuts or cheese
Dinner – vegetable soup, rice and greens, pulses or soy products

As a lot as feasible, attempt to stay far from pollutants in food by using making your self a common customer of the neighborhood health food keep. Importing and exporting food does upload pollution to the sector, consequently purchase maximum of your groceries at the nearby farmer’s marketplace. Firstly this makes you devour what is in season, and secondly you connect to what’s grown on this planet, bringing less confusion in the thoughts.

As an Ayurvedic Practitioner I do believe that it’s far most critical how our body digests meals. Vata constitutions ought to consume heat and lubricating meals, Pittas ought to cool themselves down and decrease stimulants, and Kaphas need to eat mild and dry meals. A five-day Yoga Detox Retreat can manual how the frame digests meals and deepen your personal exercise.

Years ago I donated almost all my electric kitchen devices to a 2nd-hand store. I consider in pure food that grows and gets life energy from: mother earth, the water, the air and a massive amount from the light. My kitchen cupboards do no longer hold any processed, packed or tinned meals. I can’t see any motive for eating ‘useless’ food. My freezer stays empty maximum of the time, except for my home-made, wheat grass ice-cream. I like to put my personal power into meals and cooking, which has become a shape of meditation for me.

Having grown up in Switzerland I was taught to be easy, almost sterile. Nowadays I realise it is more powerful to smooth in the body than outdoor. Therefore, take amazing care of what food you introduce to your system. Eat to stay, don’t live to consume!
