I truly believe that to each is the middle way, at Buddha states, also non harming is our tradition as yogis, this in itself is the key to diet. We must practice what we preach or should I say teach, but eating vegan is not for everyone, as well as eating organic is also not for all who search it. We must as educators be just that educators. There have been many gurus in our lists of teachers who walked before us that ate meat and lived a grand life. Each to each body. We need to instead of focusing on what not to eat focus on what one should eat for overall heath. Whole foods filled with essential ingretients that are wholesome. Some like meat, some like wheat, some drink wine, coffee. It is ones choice, and we are not suppose to judge.
We should however, list those products that we know are healthy, drinking plenty of water, green or black tea vs coffee, (since coffee is a stimulant and tea is an energizer, as well as the virtual water consumption of coffee is much higher and it is better for our environment) ( did we say non-harming, this means our environment as well as one another) eating fresh local low pesticide produce, that produce actually means things that grow from the ground. Speak of the ability to limit meat and dairy not for the fact of veganism but for our carbon foot print.
Hope this speaks as to the manner in which I eat and how I teach those who attend my sessions.
