Proper nutrition based on healthy eating is a factor that helps us stay healthy and active. This is achieved by including all nutritive groups and content in the food pyramid in our daily diet in a balanced way. These food groups are made up of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, responsible for providing all the vitamins, minerals, iron, calcium and other nutrients that our body needs to stay healthy and therefore function properly.

How a good diet is the ideal complement to yoga, meditation and other practices
In other articles on our site we told you about the various benefits of having yoga sessions, meditation and other practices that seek to feed and strengthen the spirit, body and mind. We also told you that these practices need healthy habits to make sense within a whole. The habit of healthy eating is surely the most important of them all.
Healthy eating will not only give your body (including the brain) everything it needs to be "fit" (read, prepared). Also, it is directly related to the way in which our moods behave, our predisposition to different factors of life and - although it sounds repetitive - our mental strength for the adoption of healthy habits.
There are preventive aspects, which are the ones that will directly hinder any healthy practice (be it yoga, meditation, walking, etc.).For instance, excessive consumption of red meat or sugars will be detrimental to the quality of your exercising.
As in any sport and physical / mental practice, a balanced diet is recommended before and after it. The consumption of cereals, carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins must be balanced but it is necessary. A light feeding before and a blunt feeding after. We don’t think about quantity, but about everything that is quality and has been consumed in physical or mental practice.
