The Yoga Diet
Welcome to the first of a three part series on an introduction to The Yoga Diet. This series is written with the express intent of imparting knowledge as to how you can change your life by taking on yoga as a lifestyle; not only as a series of mindful exercises, but mindful eating as well.
The Yoga Diet has been practiced by millions for millennia and is shown through history to be a good standard for most people to follow by. Simply put, it is basically this – eat food, mostly plant.
A Brief Explanation
By eating food, we mean all natural and non-antibiotic/non-GMO foods. If it was made in a plant (factory), it probably isn’t real food, but a synthesized substitute. If it was grown by a farmer or rancher, you are on the right path.
By mostly plant, we mean that although some individuals prefer to be strictly vegetarian, it is not entirely unhealthy to eat meat in your diet sparingly. In fact, for a few individuals this seems to be a necessity, especially if you are an athlete. Thus, we advise that you consider your body’s needs and your own personal beliefs with this choice. If you do choose to include meat in your diet, we highly advise only in-taking meat and eggs that are grass-fed, cage-free, certified organic, and humanely treated. We strongly encourage the practice of only eating from animals that have been treated well in effort to encourage a reduction in industrialized food practices that are both unhealthy and cruel.
