‘Look at all these colors on my plate’, exclaims The General.
An effect of Sattvic food. If life is about living in the moment, sattvic food makes that moment exuberant, one morsel at a time. Foods, abundant in Prana- the universal life-force that gives life to all sentient beings, keep our minds clear, happy and at peace.
The ancient Ayurvedic criteria for foods to be considered Sattvic were quite simple: foods were grown organically on good rich fertile soil and harvested at the correct time of year. Whole foods full of life-force and enzymes and as close as possible as they are in their natural fresh state. Foods prepared fresh with lots of love will add to their Sattvic quality.
So then why not cook it, eat it, here and now!
