Patangali’s Yoga Sutra 2:35 reveals:
“In the presence of one firmly established in Ahimsa (non violence), all hostilities cease”
In yoga practice, Ahimsa” is the first of the Yamas (moral restraints) which are foundational practices for how to best act towards ourselves and the world around us. There are many important ways we should strive to practice non-violence, and what we eat is an important part of that. Eating a plant-based diet is not only a healthy and compassionate way to treat your body, but also the most compassionate for animals and the environment.
“It is the position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that appropriately planned vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. These diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes. Plant-based diets are more environmentally sustainable than diets rich in animal products because they use fewer natural resources and are associated with much less environmental damage.”
Whether you want to transition to a plant-based diet, or are already vegan and wanting to eat more whole foods, I can help guide you to get on track to feeling your best, and living compassionately towards animals and the environment.
