Sattvic foods and type O. I am getting into Yoga and they recommend eating Sattvic foods - these are spiritually pure foods. One strongly recommended food choice is dairy from "happy cows." This is not on my SWAMI. What to do?

Maybe I should find "happy cow" milk first....  

But anyway, anybody a yogi dude here? How would you modify a pro-meat, low dairy O explorer diet to be more sattvic?

You could try making your own mozzarella cheese from happy cow milk.  That would probably rate as a neutral, at best.  But at least you could say, "Yes, I consume dairy from Happy Cows," to appease whomever.

Myself, I'd never drink milk.

Hmmm, now that I think of it, I wonder if the recommendation might have originated as "We do not recommend dairy from any cows that are not happy."  But in translation, it might've gotten recast as you heard it.

Another thought, since cows produce dairy, you could eat the cow....  Hmm, maybe not.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I would stick with BTD/GTD/SWAMI foods and not venture into any "one size fits all" dietary advice.

I don't know enough about sattvic foods to know if you can retain the spirit of it by carefully sourcing foods, even while you continue to use BTD for food choices and portion recommendations.

Surely dairy is dairy..whether happy cows or not  

While I really like ayurveda as it does consider that each 'dosha' is different, with differing constitutions and nutritional needs, it certainly is nowhere near as "personalised" as SWAMI. However it has been a useful and interesting tool for me to dip into over the years, and as a Kapha dosha foods like wheat and dairy are not for my type,there is a small overlap with BTD. But as Lola pointed out ,it is likely to be more suited to B types I think For my type ayurveda says that soya is beneficial but that beef isn't for instance...contradictory to BTD/GTD/SWAMI...so make up your own mind.

Not a yogi dude myself. One thought:

Ghee is very Sattvic, so that would be great to emphasize (I think most types get it as a superfood, right?)  Most fruits and veggies are Sattvic in quality, especially those that grow at ground level and up (carrying more sun energy and earth energy).  The thing is, a purely Sattvic diet is really geared more toward those who can somewhat withdraw and live a quiet, contemplative life.  Functioning in the mundane world really requires a nice mix of Sattvic and Rajasic...more spices/earthy foods.  Rajasic food is also good for more physically demanding sports/exercise and the like.  

I don't know, I think there are elements of this included in the diets as they are, w/the strong emphasis on veggies for most everyone, and of course the ghee.

As far as the dairy...I just use rice milk if I want to do an Ayurvedic-type spiced milk, using the spices I get as SF like turmeric, cinnamon, etc.  Rice/beans and nuts would all qualify as Sun or Ground foods and thus Sattvic...so there you have it!

I'll bet my goat milk kefir is sattvic! Who knew I loved goat milk kefir? I do. I don't know how well it fits my type, but I bet it's fair enough.

I find this all very silly. Even happy cows have some bad days and nobody is going to achieve a "purity factor" to the 100th degree living on planet earth with today's kinds of stresses and strains. Yes, keep you wallet closed unless those yogi's are willing to share their food with you.....or.....come on over to the D'adamo genoharmonics Gang thread if you've been SWAMI'ed already to make your food algorythms even "happier" without a having to rely on a Yogi.

I tried the sattvic approach, ie vegetarian, and vegan - but all the carbs, starches/sugars caused more harm than helped.
Know your gut, and also your metabolic rate.
many can't extract, absorb the nutrition from a sattvic diet/plant foods.
also milk has lactose, casein and can affect the pancreas, milk lacks fibre.
Include sattvic foods like fresh veggies, a little fruit, nuts, ghee or other healthy fat.
also, it is possible to include yoga/breathing and healthy lifestyle choices which will have a sattvic effect.
