It’s not about eating less, but eating right. We are what we eat!
Right food contributes to healthy living. To understand what to consume, let’s first look at the options available to us:
- Vegetarian diet – Plants, fruits, seeds, roots, dairy products
- Non Vegetarian diet – Animals, fish, birds and may be insects
So can we eat anything?
Every being carries a unique signature of energy, this can be positive or negative depending upon the state of the being. It is said that vegetarian diet has more positive aura and it benefits your mind and soul apart from providing the necessary elements for growth and strength.
What is the logical explanation to this?
Let’s talk about the aura or energy – let’s take humans for example, what creates a negative emotion in us, possible answers could be:
We react in a negative way when subjected to these situations. Think about the emotions that would go in an animal, who is about to be slaughtered. Animals for food are caged, beaten, pushed, pulled and killed.
You soak up all the negative energy when you consume that animal. Plant food or dairy is considerably higher on positive aura just because the parts that are consumed are regenerative and produced continuously for a cyclic period of time.
Cooking and eating vegetarian food has other benefits like, better digestion and metabolism, boosting immune functions, hydrating and enriching skin, and promoting a positive state of mind.
Add an array of colours to your plate for a balanced, healthy and positive meal.
