Dear Priyah,

thanks for these informations!

It makes sense that in ancient times, people had to be careful with food, and that the smell told them if it's still alright. Do you know why fermented food is still seen as tamasic, e.g. miso (which I thought is healthy)?

And do you know anything about eggs? In the book "The Sivananda Companion To Yoga", there is written "...anyone seriously interested in yoga should phase out eggs..." - eggs are "rajasic food" which "overstimulates the body, making the mind restless and uncontrollable". I understand why sharp spices, coffee, tea and everything that's very hot, bitter, sour or salty is in that category, but eggs? They seem to be the odd one out...

Yes, the seasons and the climate make a difference - we also have to listen to our bodies and what they might need. Sometimes we feel like some yogurt with fresh fruits, and sometimes we need a warm soup.

Om Shanti,

Carina
