Tantric foods and diets - ARTICLE

Food is an energy form.

Raw food is of course closer to nature and its original form.

When foods are heavily processed, they loose this energy content.

Imagine for instance that you can choose between fresh fruit and tined one, which one would you go for?

Which one do you feel would be the most beneficial for you?

You can apply the same approach to anything you eat.

Eating healthy is your choice of course.

You stay free at all times to eat whatever is suitable for you.

Within the tantric tradition, I don’t remember ever coming across a book or article, mentioning what tantric food was.

If you think “Tantric food” I am sure you will come up with a few guidelines which are suitable for you.

Two elements seem to be essential:

  • How much life force does this food contain?
  • How much pleasure will I get when I eat it?

These are two simple questions you can ask yourself when selecting your next meal or preparing it.

My choice:

  • I tend to go now for raw food
  • Lots of fruit and vegetables
  • Lots of dried fruits
  • Fresh juices
  • Some milk products in the form of yoghurt or cheese
  • Some tofu like products
  • Some grains in the form of muesli
  • Little or no meat or fish

It takes me maximum 5 minutes to prepare a meal: usually a fresh salad with a few different vegetables and sauce.

My favorite for breakfast and lunch: muesli with fresh fruit, yoghurt and juice.

For snacks: dried fruit.

That’s it for now on this topic.
