Eating to Live instead of Living to Eat?

Eating to Live Lombok Go Ahead

Do you eat consciously and mindfully? Are you aware of what you are putting into your body? Food does affect your mind, your emotions and the energy around you. Eating organic has become a way of life.

Why do we go organic? Simply stated, organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation.

Animals that produce meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products do not take antibiotics or growth hormones. Going organic has nothing to do with vegan o vegetarian, it is an awareness about our planet and its riches. Organic foods may have higher nutritional value than conventional food.

The organic concept is gaining prominence across the planet. Thus yoga is one of its best living example. Its practice also contains body and soul healing through breathing, mindfulness and meditation along with a healthy diet. In the Yoga and Ayurvedic philosophy, a healthy diet should avoid Raja foods which are hot, spicy and fast foods or Tama foods which are slow, lethargic and blended. People are encouraged to rather eat Sattva foods which are pure and harmonic for the body.

Lombok natural beauty has attracted a number of those aware souls. They organize permaculture and organic farming across the island. Here people share their knowledges in authentic cuisine by making all from scratch such as make your own raw chocolate, or ferment your miso paste, make nut milks etc.
So that way people learn the bases of healthy eating which affects in positive way not only their bodies but the global environment.

Think global – go organic!
