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

The #1 health food

A common question we get is what kind of food is the healthiest? Is it tomatoes or carrots, is it fish or chicken, nuts or beans, is it milk or soy milk? Raw or cooked? Carbs or proteins?
