I really tried to live healthy last week. This meant that I had to prepare my own meals. I didn't go out to restaurants to have a quick lunch. Yes, I picked me up and bought ingredients for salads to have lunch according my imaginations. Weather was hot and something fresh was appropriate. A spicy soup doesn't fit to hot days. My salads were delicious and healthy. I had water during the day as beverage and was happy. What we eat makes a difference. It has influence on our feelings, our motivation, our cravings, our energy level.
Everybody who does sports know this. It became a science for professionals. Currently I'm reading the autobiography of Arnold Schwarzenegger 'Total Recall'. Even in the 50s a connection between food and success in sportive performance was sure and one lived accordingly.
Yoginis don't want to win prizes. Nevertheless light meals make the yoga practice easier.
Being a yogini is a life style. It doesn't stop after the asana practice.
