As per the Yoga tradition :

Food that we eat has an effect on our mental and physical well-being.

Food as per the Yoga tradition is classified into three types – Sattvic, Tamasic and Rajasic.

A Sattvic diet consists of simple, healthy and light food.

Sattvic Food

Sattvic food is neither too sweet, nor too salty or spicy. Moderation in taste and quantity is Sattvic food.

Sattvic food is pure in nature, food which is not processed is light in potency and rich in nutrition.

Cooked food, consumed within three to four hours of preparation, is Sattvic food.

Sattvic food cleanses and purifies the body and calms the mind. It energizes the body and mind.

The food that is prepared by hurting or killing living beings, such as fish and meat,  are Rajasic and Tamasic in nature, and should, therefore, be avoided.

Rajasic and Tamasic foods can cause anger, irritability, hyperactivity, restlessness and sleeplessness. These food types also increase the level of toxins in the blood. Hence, these types of food intakes should be avoided.

Spiritualism reflects that there is “Unity in diversity”. Which is the most precious pearl of India.
