Yoga has the power to heal both physical as well as mental issues. Since we are now living the new normal where strength and well-being are necessary to survive, it`s equally important to eat the right balance of food for overall healthy and happy living.
Yoga principal of Ahimsa is commitment to protecting nature by choosing wholesome foods. What we eat, not only influences our physical wellbeing, but also our emotions and thoughts.
Yoga does not dissect food into proteins, carbohydrates, or fats, instead it classifies them according to the effect they have on the body and mind, into three types – satva, rajas and tamas, points out Sheryl Salis, Registered Dietician, Naturopath and Certified Diabetes Educator.
