Quoted from ChloeIf SWAMI doesn't list a food, you can consider it neutral. BUT if there are toxic ingredients in any
product, eat that product as randomly as you would any toxic food. Most commercial soy yogurt
would likely contain gums and ingredients most of us shouldn't consume.
Typebase lists "yogurt" as dairy yogurt....so judging by that, I'm going to assume that any non dairy yogurt that contains ingredients that are beneficial for you, would be okay to consume. LIke if you
made your own soy yogurt from approved soy milk ingredients, it should be fine.
Soy cheese, if listed as beneficial for you, treat it as such. It's not the same as soy yogurt.
I'm not quite sure what you're asking about chamomile tea as far as "infusion" is concerned. Do
you want to know if you can buy chamomile in any other form other than tea? Or do you want
to know if it's okay to consume it? It is sold in tinctures which would be concentrates of chamomile...usually alcohol is added. You might want to google to see what is available.....but
if you want to know if you can consume a tincture, again, only if all ingredients are okay for you.
What exactly would you like to know about the herbs sage, thyme and artichoke? If any of these
herbs are listed as beneficial or neutral in any form, they should be okay to consume....or are you
looking for infusions of these herbs? Again, you might want to google if this question has to do
with locating products rather than whether you can consume these products.
Just to reiterate.....you're allowed to consider any food, or herb neutral in any form, if it's not listed on your SWAMI
thank you so much
the soy yogurt is made only with soy so i'm quite sure about it and i'm happy that i can consume it thanks to your suggestion even though it is not in any swami's list food.
now: about chamomile my question was concerning the infusion.
usually at bedtime i make an infusion with dried sage leaves or thyme or chamomile flowers, sometimes even fennel seeds: no alcohol, no sugar whatsoever.
so: thyme, fennel and sage are among "Spices" list as beneficial----they are not even listed in "Beverages" list.......!?! i was wondering why ??) ::)seeing that chamomile tea is there (and it is among the neutral ones, as carrot juice, milk soy ..etc).
so, at the end of the day ;D, may i consume those spices (beneficial or neutral ones) as infusion even though they are in another list than "beverages"?
thank you again and again :)
...may i consume those spices (beneficial or neutral ones) as infusion even though they are in another list than "beverages"?
thank you so much, your replies helped me a lot. :)
if i may, please, another thing:
swami says "portion size: nuts,seeds: half cup;"
how much is half cup? a tea cup? a coffee cup?(italian coffee, i mean espresso).. ::)
thank you in advance
