Yogic Diet – Millet Veggie Burger Recipe
As a yoga teacher I guide my clients how to use yoga to heal various aliments, increase metabolism, help with weight loss, relieve stress, strengthen the immune system, enhance brain function and much more.
I really love it but I also teach about yogic nutrition and the yogic diet.
As I have mentioned I help people to heal with yoga, but food also plays a huge role in healing and balancing body and mind.
If you have that right, than all other activities like yoga will work much more effectively.
So, what is a Yogic Diet?
It is about conscious food and conscious eating – always choosing natural ingredients, fresh produce full of vitamins and minerals.
You can be vegan, vegetarian, eat according to the principles to Ayurveda or Five Elements Chinese Medicine – the most important thing is to choose what is the best for you!
Today I recommend this delicious millet veggie burger recipe you can have for lunch or dinner.
Millet burgers are vegetarian and gluten free.
Millet is non allergenic, alkalising, has also a high protein content (15%) and contains lots of fibre.
Millet is also digests easily, which is important when you are practicing yoga, as of course you don’t want to feel heavy or bloated.
