On the path of self awareness and being physically and mentally fit it doesn't only matter how we treat our body at a physical level but it also matter how we take care of it internally. Food being the essential part of our survival and strength, it also plays a big role on our mind. Ever wondered what makes a yogi look younger than their age,how they are always in a peaceful and calm state of mind,what makes them feel content and happy. Yes there are a lot of other things that brings them to this state but food is one of the major.'What goes inside comes outside' A Yogic diet is eating sattvic food with mindful eating habit.

Sattvic Diet Have you ever noticed the effects of food on our body and mind? Some gives an effect of disturbance or bloating however there are some foods which have more subtle effects on the mind and our mood. Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, offers us an intricate understanding of how different foods effect our physical health, mental well-being and even our spiritual strength. According to Ayurveda, Sattvic foods promote purity of both body and mind. In particular, a sattvic diet is intended to cultivate a calm, clear and compassionate mind.Sattvic foods are generally fresh vegetables, grains, and legumes, mild spices and mildly sweet foods. However, a sattvic diet does include some dairy products such as cows milk(organic, unpasteurized ) and ghee. According to Ayurveda, this is the best diet for a Yogi to adopt. It helps keep the mind clear, and Sattvic as opposed to rajasic or tamasic. A sattvic diet is also soothing for the digestive system, nourishes tissues, and utilize the six tastes in Ayurveda (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, astringent) to help balance our sattva, rajas, and tamas maha gunas (mental energies). The six tastes describe the flavors of different foods and their vital essences. For example, the sweet taste is the staple of a sattvic diet; it brings the soft, juicy qualities of earth and water and is equated to the experience of love. Sour and salty tastes bring regenerative qualities to your body and nourish and ground you. The lighter tastes—pungent, bitter, and astringent—purify, tone your tissues, and assist in the breakdown of fats and proteins. A well-rounded meal will incorporate both nourishing and purifying qualities. Sattvic meals and mindfully eating together composes the Yogic diet.Lets see mindful eating more in details.
