Yogatrition

Yogatrition begins when you ask yourself a few basic questions:

Am I eating to fuel my spirit or weigh down my body?

Am  I hungry?

Why am I eating?

What does Mindful Eating look like to me?

What is my definition of healthy?

Can I practice yoga comfortably 2 hours after a meal?

Am I eating in an ethical way in alignment with my spirit?

How are the things I eat produced?

Can I find enjoyment out of my meals?

Am I proud of the choices I make?

Do I add the spice of love to my meals?

Am I getting caught up in fads, or are my choices for a life time?

Do I always feel I need to cleanse or purge?

Do I understand what’s on the ingredient label?

Could I grow this food on my own?

How can I share this with others?
