Products — sources of life energy
It should be understood that life energy and calorie are completely different things. The most calorie foods are usually not very useful, but those that are energy sources are useful undoubtedly. For them, there is even a special definition in “Ayurveda”, they are called “sattwical”.
In this category are primarily berries, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, it doesn’t matter how they are consumed — raw or after heat treatment, the most important thing is that they are fresh. In baked or boiled form, these products may be even more useful than in raw, as they are digested more easily and the trace elements containing them are absorbed better.
In food giving energy, dairy products are also included. Whole boiled milk and ghee is considered the most energy-intensive. In addition, energy can be obtained from wheat and products based on it: porridge from whole grains, wholemeal flour bread, bran, pasta from hard varieties of this cereal. It
will help to save energy clean water, which needs to be collected in natural sources, which exclude its pollution by harmful impurities.
Life energy is contained in honey, which according to “Ayurveda” concentrates in itself the energy of the sun, unrefined cold pressed olive oil, legumes: lentils, chickpeas, beans and peas.
Energy taking away food
Vampire products, which are called “tamasic”, include all that contain toxins and rotten bacteria. These are, for example, unfresh, old and fermented — sauerbread and savoury vegetables, aged cheeses, as well as those products produced by someone’s death — meat, fish, eggs. Not particularly complains “Ayurveda” and root vegetables, except for carrots and beets, as well as those that grow and ripen underground: garlic, onions and mushrooms.
The basic rule for saving energy is to exclude overeating, so that the body does not waste its strength on processing excess products and storing them in fat stock.
If you want to save your life energy, refuse to eat refined sugar, coffee and alcohol, even though they add strength, but such a the energy charge runs out very quickly and after it there is a feeling of fatigue. And, of course, harmful, “tamasic” products include genetically modified ingredients, as well as all artificial additives, dyes and preservatives.
