Frozen food & Ayurveda

Our food should be vital, full of Prana (energy) and a source of nourishment.

In Ayurveda, food that is lifeless or lacking in Prana is referred to as Paryushita. Unfortunately frozen food falls under this unpleasant title…

Although science suggests that frozen foods can be nutritious, Ayurveda views them as lacking in essential vitality and unable to enliven Sattwa (creative force). Fresh foods (good quality, organic, etc) are abundant in Prana whereas frozen foods lack Prana & strain our digestive fire (Agni), making nutrients unavailable to our bodies, causing tissue (Dhatu) degeneration.

Try to consume less frozen foods in your diet. Where possible opt for freshly prepared, homemade, whole foods.
