12 Eat a Sattvic Diet

Sattvic diet is a concept from Ayurveda and Eastern Medicine. Ayurveda suggests that when you eat, the food is converted into ojas using the digestive fire called Agni. (Please see our Ayurveda section for explanation.) An excellent, balanced diet consists of those that turn into ojas with the least effort on your body's part. This regimen of foods is called sattvic, or pure, foods. 

Sattvic Diet 

Milk 
Rice 
Ghee (clarified butter) 
Sesame seeds 
Fruits and fruit juices 
Sweet taste in general

Additions to Sattvic Diet

The following foods are used to supplement a Sattvic diet

Wheat
Mung beans
Coconut
Oranges
Dates
Honey

Foundations of a sattvic diet are: 

  • Light, soothing, easily digested food 
  • Fresh produce 
  • Spring water 
  • Balance of all six tastes 
  • Moderate portions

Sattvic diet is preferred because it is the best diet for physical strength, a good mind, good health, and longevity. It is conducive to happiness and loving emotions because it is in tune with nature as a whole.
