AYURVEDIC PERSPECTIVE ON TAMASIC

Sattva
Sattvic foods promote one's attentiveness. They nourish the body without taxing the digestive tract. Examples of sattvic foods include ghee, milk, almonds, rice, dates and saffron. Sattvic foods do not stimulate desire or nervous energy. They create clarity instead of drowsiness or heaviness. Click here for sattvic food examples.
Rajas
Rajasic foods stimulate movement and action. Red meat, high protein food, garlic and onions stimulate desire. Chili peppers, coffee, and cocaine stimulate movement. Click here for rajasic food examples.
