Awesome Article, thanks.


Everything in moderation.

Why is it that none of Yoga Journal's article's address Genetically Engineered food? Does Monsanto own a piece of YJ?

Enjoy your life,feel the bliss inside.Eat everything,vegetarian or non-veg.your choice.Eating too much deserts or fats are not good.Whole wheat flour,olive oil & raw sugar is okay.Eat greens & salads.Yogurt is great.Make Lassie with yogurt,main Indian Drink, add mangoes or strawberries & enjoy.Blessings.


I have suffered with almost every eating disorder. I developed such a fear of different food groups. Only recently have i admitted this and have begun the healing process. I am learning to love myself and to appriciate the whole foods that God created for us to fuel our bodies with. I take each day at a time now. Instead of beating myself up about what I ate "bad" or what I didnt eat enough of. I think about what Im going to eat and make sure I have healthy options. If I am to have dessert I enjoy a few bites without guilt. Our food has been messed with so much that I too forgot what healthy food was. Thank you for this article. It helped me realize that I am not the only one and that there is hope for our country to reclaim a healthy mindset about food.


Actually, science has shown the benefits of eating a vegetarian or near vegetarian diet for several decades. It is the food industry that produces cheap filth they call food. It is also the food industry that has lobbied the U.S. government to prevent it from promoting the science and guidelines as originally created by the scientists. If you want to find blame for the confusion over what to eat, don't blame science. Blame the fat cats who want to profit over food. Then go out a dig a garden in your back yard. The exercise will do you good and so will the fresh produce.
