You are What you Eat
When we talk of nourishment, it is often said that your thoughts are defined by the type of food you intake. No matter how active you are, if you do not make the right dietary choices, you would never be able to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy is an art that requires a deep understanding of the intrinsic quality of the food you consume. The food we consume directly nourishes the body and creates a foundation for a healthy mind and soul.
While some foods can activate the inner soul and unlock the stream of pure thoughts, most of the fast-food that we are used to just increases our lethargy. The key to healthy living is in adopting pure vegetarianism and choosing sattvik food.
The Power of Sattvik Food
Sattvik food is known to be pure, natural, clean, energetic and vital for healthy mind, soul and body. Such preparations are said to be the most gut-friendly foods and the body can digest them easily. Sattvik diet is a composition of organic raw and cooked seasonal fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole grains and a lot more. A wholesome sattvik meal is not tasteless but includes six vital flavors namely, sweet, bitter, sour, salt, pungent and astringent using fresh produce only.
When the diet is prepared using the above principles, it becomes pure, light and propagates clarity when consumed.
The Importance of Vegetarianism
Vegetarianism is a strong concept when it comes to sattvik diet. According to ancient scriptures, every element in the universe has a guna (quality). Different foodstuffs we consume also are in different gunas (qualities).
Sattvik foods are all about vegetarian ingredients that are grown, organically without harming the Mother Nature. At the same time, sattvik diet does not include meat, processed foods and other foods that directly or indirectly are responsible for imbalance in nature. This means the food is pure from negative gunas and a person consumes only those ingredients that are in harmony with nature.
Being a vegetarian, hence, is essential for lightness, peace and clarity. When only harmonious gunas are transferred within, a person is sure to have only positive and constructive thoughts. This is not the case with other kinds of foodstuff.
Thus the food we intake has a direct effect on our consciousness and we become what we eat. To remain clear, focused and pure in consciousness, the foodstuff we eat should be Sattvik i.e. in the modes of goodness.
