Changes in the Nature of Yogi Food

Dear Friends of Yogi Food;

After considerable deliberation, I have decided that Yogi Food will not be necessarily vegan anymore. I am experimenting with conscious omnivorism as I really believe it is what my body needs to heal from what ails me. I no longer eat a vegan diet , and although the principles of ahimsa are dear to me, I can no longer promote one.

This is not to say that most of the forthcoming recipes will contain animal products; they will not. But I want to approach this blog, the aim of which is not only to provide recipes but to share information and promote healthy eating and awareness, from a different, more holistic angle. This includes more discussion of a variety of dietary paradigms and practices, and how they fit in to a yogic lifestyle. I will also include new types of recipes, which may include animal foods such as ghee, butter, honey, or eggs. As always, all ingredients are organic, superlatively healthful, and consciously chosen.

So I hope my readers will enjoy the new Yogi Food, and if any true vegans out there no longer wish to subscribe, I’m sorry to see you go, and wish you the best.



about the author…

Lia Leilah is a world-traveling vegan chef and dedicated practitioner and teacher of Ashtanga yoga. Her passions include learning and teaching about nutrition, feeding people delicious healthy food, chanting in strange languages, and standing on her hands. Oh yes, and raw chocolate!

Lia is known for laying out rainbow-like buffets for hordes of hungry yogis at international yoga retreats. Diners are often stunned by the things she can do with a vegetable! Inspired by the idea of sharing the ultimate, guilt-free, culinary pleasures with as many friends as possible, Lia began hand-crafting gourmet raw chocolate. She opened her own small business, ELIXIA, in 2010.  Incorporating superfoods and  alchemical substances such as monoatomic gold, rose otto, and Ormus-rich green powders, ELIXIA raw chocolates have acquired something of a cult following.

This spring will find Lia in Portland OR, teaching Ashtanga yoga at the Shakti House, making magickal chocolate, slinging ink,and of course, creating Yogi Food!
