Ashtanga Yoga Vegan — Food as Medicine

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

— Albert Einstein
Physicist, 1921 Nobel Prize recipient


One of the most inspiring stories about VEGAN conscious life is that of John Robbins. The only son of the founder of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire, John Robbins was groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, but chose to walk away from Baskin-Robbins and the immense wealth it represented to “…pursue the deeper American Dream…the dream of a society at peace with its conscience because it respects and lives in harmony with all life forms. A dream of a society that is truly healthy, practicing a wise and compassionate stewardship of a balanced ecosystem.”

“My refusing to eat meat occasioned inconveniency, and I have been frequently chided for my singularity. But my light repast allows for greater progress, for greater clearness of head and quicker comprehension.”

— Benjamin Franklin
American statesman, inventor, (1706-1790)

• Is Diet important?

• Should I think and feel more around what I am eating? and when I am eating it?

• Do our food choices show up in our life in any ways that may be harmful to our well being?

• Does what I eat relate to how I am feeling?

The answer is “YES”

This point should be clear, “you are what you eat“, so eat things with light and energy that are organic, like fruit and vegetables.

Our whole being takes in ENERGY from the SUN through the foods we eat.
