Sattvic Food Philosophy
Setting up a Sattvic Kitchen
What does Sattvic mean?
Lord Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita states that all embodied souls are working under the control of 3 modes, or qualities of material nature –
The thoughts in our head, the activities we perform, the people we meet, the food we eat can all be classified as either Sattvic, Rajasik or Tamasik.
SATTVIC: Mode of Goodness:
Purity, Happiness, Compassion, Bliss, Love, Self Control, Satisfaction, Nonviolence, Fearlessness, Surrender. When Sattvic dominates, we feel happy, satisfied, & in control of our senses.
Foods that are fresh, Wholesome (unprocessed, unrefined), juicy (water-rich), freshly cooked & lightly seasoned are Sattvic in nature. Sattvic Food is living food, with life energy inside it. It is food straight from Nature, with no or minimal human interference.
