Light Alkalinizing Foods: The Key to Endurance and Good Health

A yogic perspective by Morris Krok

From Living Nutrition vol. 6

From my experiences and studies in Yoga, there are no laws which say that one must eat so many apples or oranges a day, or that we must have special meals for breakfast, lunch or supper. Yogic truths have were developed centuries before our modern nutritional concepts. Some of the lessons found in yogic texts are not openly stated, but are nevertheless there for those who seek — hidden between the lines, so to speak.

For instance, the texts tell us what to eat, such as fruit, and how we can only realize the importance of fruit meals when one has to perform strenuous work a few hours after eating. When this is the case, it will be found that the raw foods such as fruits and vegetables will be digested in a relatively short period of time, providing quick energy, in comparison to cooked starches, meat, dairy products and fried foods. If we want be able to work all day and avoid becoming fatigued, we should live on fruits and drink only water. Fats, in comparison, take longer to digest and assimilate. Furthermore, the absorption and utilization of proteins takes longer than starches, and starches take longer than sugars. In other words, the more concentrated a food is the longer it will take to be broken down and provide energy.

Operating in conjunction with the varying digestion periods of different foodstuffs is the yogic knowledge of sattvic and alkaline factors.
