As most ancient cultures (and often common sense) the Yoga tradition recommends a clean, non-refined plant-based diet to stay healthy. Yogis know that animal sourced food is seen as a "low-value" food that drains us of energy and health. It makes us sluggish, and in the long run makes us ill. Modern science has vastly proven the ancient Yogic … Continue reading Nutrition – 1st of 5 Pillars of Yoga

We know … Continue reading Animal Sourced Protein Linked to Cancer
Cooking is as Great an Invention as the Wheel!
Cooking is fantastic! Not only because it kills potentially harmful bacteria but also because some nutrients become more bioavailable. When you soak, cook, mash food, you help your digestion so that it doesn’t need to use strong stomach acids to break up the food to get the nutrients out, and therefore they are more bioavailable, meaning … Continue reading Cooking is as Great an Invention as the Wheel!
