What is Satvik Food?

Satvik diet is based on Ayurveda and yogic literature.foods that decrease the energy of the body are considered tamasic, while those that increase the energy of the body are considered rajasic. It includes include foods and eating habits that are pure, essential, natural, vital and energy-containing, clean, conscious and honest. Yogis always followed Ahimsa or non violence and only had vegetarian diet.Pungent vegetables like hot peppers, leek, garlic and onion are excluded, as are gas-forming foods such as mushrooms. Classification of foods as satvik or non satvik depends on the schools of thought.
