Food that is in alignment with your highest vibration is organic, sustainably harvested, cruelty-free, delicious, satisfying, health-promoting and conducive to the expansion of your conscious awareness. In the west, we may refer to this type of food as a Superfood. In the Yoga and Ayurveda traditions of India, this is known as "Sattvic" food, meaning pure food. From a western nutritional perspective, Sattvic food is often equated to highly mineralized, nutrient dense, high vibrational, calorie-sparse food that almost everyone can eat, regardless of dietary restrictions. Yogi Granola, the first functional food for Yoga and Meditation practitioners, is a unique Superfood Granola that exudes Sattvic qualities with every bite and confers therapeutic healing benefits on the mind, body, and breath.
The Definition of Superfoods
Superfoods are highly mineralized, nutrient dense, high vibrational, calorie-sparse foods that almost everyone can eat. Yogi Granola is comprised of a highly nutritive proprietary blend of raw, sprouted nuts, seeds, other superfoods, adaptogens, herbs and medicinal mushrooms. It is truly a unique superfoods blend that is gluten free, grain free and vegan.
What Are Functional Foods?
Functional foods are deeply nourishing foods that confer systemic therapeutic benefits which positively contribute to our physiological well-being. Nuts and Seeds are an example of functional foods that have scientifically proven their ability to prevent heart disease, reduce inflammation and heal chronic fatigue by repairing mitochondria dysfunction.
What Are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are a special class of herbs, spices, and medicinal mushrooms clinically proven to increase our ability to resist stress by enabling us to adapt, survive and thrive in the face of stressful situations, circumstances and conditions. Countless peer-reviewed studies validate the ability of adaptogens to bring relief to those suffering from stress-induced fatigue, chronic inflammation, pain, cognitive impairment, mental disorders, cancer, atherosclerosis, autoimmune disease, allergies, breathing problems, immune system imbalance, neurodegenerative conditions, endocrine hormonal imbalances, Alzheimer's, metabolic disorders, obesity and age-related degenerative conditions.
What is Yoga?
It is commonly said that all of Life is yoga and everything that you do becomes an aspect of your yoga. But, what does that even mean? On a superficial level, the word yoga means “union” in the Sanskrit language. However, those who delve further into the subject come to learn that Patanjali, the pre-eminent Yoga philosopher, starts out his book by describing Yoga as Atha Yoga Anushasanam, which means perfecting the learning and disciplining of self. A process that leads one to attain Chitta Vritti Nirodhah, the ability to still the fluctuations of the mind. And the ultimate outcome of this stillness of mind allows the Yogi to become established in his own true nature. A nature which is devoid of the negative attributes of life. A nature that is free of the confining and Tamasic (low vibrational) tendencies of life. It is this culmination that Patanjali labels: Tada Drashtuh Svarupe Avasthanam, the ultimate state of Yoga, otherwise known as Samadhi, or to become self-realized.
Yoga, Superfoods and the Mind, Body, Breath Connection
Yogi’s learn very quickly that the quality and nature of the food that a practitioner eats is just as important as the Asanas (postures), Pranayamas (life force control via breath manipulation), Dharana (concentration) and Dhyana (meditation) that make up a Yoga Sadhana (yoga practice). Therefore, an improperly nourished mind, body, and breath will not allow one to reach the level of stillness required to attain Samadhi (self-realization), the ultimate state of Yoga.
As yogis, we put great effort towards raising the level of our consciousness above the realms of our lower chakras, so that we may further develop into more loving and heart-centered human beings. Sattvic foods (Superfoods), when consumed regularly, assist in cultivating the inner faculties of peace, love, awareness, and sensitivity to all other living beings. Sattvic foods contain high levels of Prana (life force) that leads the mind to an equanimous state most conducive and most receptive to experiencing transcendent states of bliss, improved cognition, clarity, focus, calm, relaxation, and heightened consciousness awareness.
