Did you Know? In the Vedas, Food is divided into three groups.
Ayurveda, India's traditional medical system, divides food into three categories: Satvic, Rajasic, and Tamasic. Satvic diet is made up of completely natural and minimally processed ingredients, such as vegetables, and is said to have a beneficial, relaxing, and purifying influence on the body and mind. Rajasic cuisine is hot, oily, salty, or bitter, and it fuels ambition, competitiveness, and egotistical desires. Tamasic food is highly processed, poisonous, and difficult to digest, and it has a detrimental impact on both the mind and the body.
