When you are thinking about your chakra system you probably aren't considering the types of foods that you consume. Because our chakras are energy vortexes and invisible to most of us one might well imagine that chakras would thrive on energy, prayer, or other such spiritual stuff... you know, those things that we can't see with the human eye. However, the chakras cannot sustain our human body without our help. It is important to feed and nourish the flesh in order to help support and fuel our energy body. Whenever one or more of your chakras is misaligned you might do well to review your diet choices to see if you are not eating or possibly overeating the foods that fuel that particular chakra.

Check out the foods under each of the seven primary chakras in this step-by-step tutorial to help you determine how your current diet might be deficient or over-indulgent. We can do our part in helping bring balance to our chakras by eating a balanced diet.
