According to Sage Patanjali ‘Yoga’ is a discipline which unifies mind and body and brings cessation to mental tendencies. Diet is an integral part of yoga and human existence. In the light of Indian philosophy diet is considered as a sacred entity. Taittariya Upanishad says, “Annat purushah”: The individual grows out of the food that he takes. Shrimadbhagvad Gita, the fountainhead of Indian school of thought considers diet as ‘Yuktaahar’ which means balanced diet.
