Seven foods you should avoid with spiritual nutrition
There are certain foods that you should exclude from your diet if you want to make spiritual progress. In this article, you will learn what constitutes a spiritual nutrition, how to best eat your food and what foods you should avoid.
What constitutes a spiritual diet
Certain foods can offer benefits for your spiritual development:
In general, it is advisable to include as much fruit and vegetables in your diet as possible. Your body can absorb these easily and at the same time produce little waste products. The less you cook your food, the better, since raw foods have a higher energy level.
Water and freshly pressed fruit juices and smoothies are the right drinks for you! In the article below you will find more about water and how you can best use it for yourself!
How you eat is also important
In addition to choosing the right foods, you should also pay attention to how you eat your food.
Don’t eat too often!
It is recommended to leave at least 3 hours between meals so that the food can completely leave your stomach.
Only then should you start eating again. You shouldn’t eat sweets or anything like that between meals as this disrupts the digestive process when fresh and semi-digested foods mingle in the stomach.
Also, don’t feed yourself too much
Even if you consume the most spiritually beneficial food, if you overeat, it will become extremely harmful.
The stomach should be half-filled with food, since it also needs space for air and liquids when digesting. If this space is not available, your body will not digest the food properly.
This half-digested food gets into your intestines and causes harmful substances to be absorbed into your system. If you burp while eating, it is a sign that you have now had enough food.
Eat at the right time
After sunset, you should not consume more food because the stomach should be as empty as possible when sleeping.
Don’t drink before and after eating
If you drink liquid right before or right after eating, it will dilute your stomach acid, making your digestion less effective. Better leave 1/2 hour between food and drinks.
Be thankful and eat slowly
The mindset with which you eat food also has a significant impact on its effect. If you really want to get the best of your food, fold your hands and bow before your meal.
With this simple gesture, your system understands that you value food and will respond accordingly.
You should also not eat your food too hastily or in an uncomfortable environment, because it would create stress in you.
Another tip to get the most put of your spiritual nutrition: Chew your foods well. The stomach also needs more energy to digest badly chewed food.
Now that we know how to ingest food, let’s look at what foods you should exclude from your diet to promote your spiritual development.
Foods that hinder your spiritual development
There are some foods that you should completely exclude from your diet because they make your energy heavy and dull you mentally.
Here is a list:
Meat & Fish
Generally speaking, meat consumption can be equated with violence, which makes it spiritually intolerable to eat meat.
It also has many health disadvantages. There is already a separate article on this topic, which describes the effects of meat consumption in detail.
Even though onions can be considered healthy on a physical level, they have the same disadvantages as meat on an energetic level: they make your energy heavy and your thoughts dull.
When you distribute the essential oils of garlic in the energetic system this disrupts the flow of energy. If you follow a spiritual practice, garlic is a no-go.
You should also avoid leeks for the same reasons! If you are looking for health benefits of garlic, however, they are plenty. You can find lots of information here:
They also make your energy heavy and also have a bloating effect.
Artificial and highly processed foods
The more natural your diet is, the more your system benefits. Artificial additives have a negative impact on your energy and, therefore, on your quality of life.
Over-processed foods and canned foods are too far from their natural state to do you any good.
The substances that arise during the fermentation process and the food also have a dulling effect on energy and spirit.
You should, therefore, exclude overripe fruit, vinegar and even non-alcoholic beer from the diet.
Warmed up or stale food
Cooked food can maintain its energy for a maximum of 3 hours, after which it has a negative effect on your system.
Furthermore, you should not reheat cooked food, as it also loses its energy. Better eat it cold!
If you avoid the foods listed here, you most certainly provide the best possible foundation for your spiritual development.
Nutrition is a foundation, not the process itself
Good nutrition is an important thing, as it improves your health and gives you strength to shape your life. When you meet these requirements, the spiritual process can fully develop.
However, note the following:
It is advisable to practice yoga and meditation regularly to really start the spiritual process!
If you are new to yoga, I can recommend the 5 Tibetan Rites. They are easy to learn, take up little time and offer you a balanced program to start yoga.
