Ayurvedic Insights: Knowing the Energies of Vegetables

Everyone of the holistic healing processes work on the concept of energy. According to physics, even solid things are nothing but energy. If you read or watch the movie of The Secret, you will clearly know what I am talking about here. The entire universe is nothing but energy.

Anyways, leaving the spiritual perception aside, here is some practical information. We all make recipes and often mix ingredients together without any fixed protocols. We just try and see how it goes, and it usually goes well.

Ayurveda obviously does not only emphasize on the taste of a dish but also how successful it is in its purpose. The purpose is to provide you with positive energy that helps us to carry on throughout the day.

Is your food giving you the energy that you need? How do you feel after taking a meal? For once, just move your attention from the tongue and try to catch up on how you feel otherwise. Motivated or dull? Enthusiastic or lethargic? That is something to ponder on.

What I learned recently is the types of energies our vegetables carry. All vegetables that grow above the ground carry positive energy. All vegetables that grow below the ground carry neutral energy. There are certain exceptions to this. Eggplant/brinjal and mushrooms carry negative energy in spite of growing above the ground. Tomato is another exception that carries neutral energy. Onion and garlic are two other vegetables that are known to have negative energies.

Now, it is not that we need to give up all those with negative energies but we can mix them accordingly. For example, adding an onion to lot of green vegetables is better than adding it to potato (which is neutral). We can keep this information in mind while mixing ingredients.

Happy cooking!

I would like to know as well how almost all your post go straught to the Top Posts page!! They are always very good, but it is the speed which amazes me! You do have a lot of followers, don't you? (If anyone else wants to follow me, they are very welcome, LOL!)

      Thanks for being a regular reader of my posts Maggie! Only Jason can answer how the algorithm works here and I absolutely have no idea. I just keep writing and reading. My profile says I have 31 followers. I don't know who they are and whether they read my posts or not. But I guess you are right that having followers improves the speed of getting responses.

              Yes, I have been blogging here since March 2012 and it really pays. Be sure of that. Since you have started blogging, create a Paypal ID asap and start getting paid :) There is no other way we can receive payment in India. I know there are many scams like this but as you can see in my profile, I have earned money every month from here and I get paid every time (same day!) Rest assured and keep blogging. All the best.

    I heard something else that is interesting about energy in plant food. It decreases with time. Which means that if your veggies are imported, you will have less of that energy. This is one of the reasons we feel better if we eat according to the seasons and eat locally. Of course that would mean that several people would die of hunger if they waited until the snow melts, so importing is a must, especially Canada and Russia and the northern European countries! But it is better to avoid it as much as possible. I don't know if making preserves in glass jars helps keep the energy in, though. I voted. Please come read my article, What is a Superfood?, and vote if you enjoyed reading it.

      You are absolutely right Anita. I always insist on fresh vegetables. Of course if there is no option and nothing grows in some regions for a lot of months, they need to resort to preservation. For example, in the state of Rajasthan, which is mostly desert, most of the dishes are based on gram flour. There are other ways of increasing life energy and breath is one of the sources. Saving more for later... Thanks for reading :) I am right over to yours..

        Yes, I have heard that plants start losing their nutrients (energy, I presume, in other words) from the moment they are harvested, picked and pulled out of the ground and even more so once you cut them! Sp obviously it is best to eat fruit and veg as fresh as possible, grow your own if you can, which is something I am aspiring to.

    I've heard the whole energy thing before, but from another source... I'm trying to remember where. Edgar Cayce, perhaps. Anyways, I agree, and I voted! Come check out my new piece about GMOs - for you, actually, because you mentioned that you want to read more about soy.
