Balance Your Chakras With Food

By Zain Saraswati Jamal

balance_your_chakras_with_food_imageWe all go through moments when we feel lazy, unconfident, unsuccessful, fatigued, depressed, anxious, frustrated, emotional, burnt out, and so on, but what if there was a way to overcome these feelings in a natural way, free of addictive tendencies, pharmaceuticals, or therapy so that we could get back to our awesome, motivated, rockin’ selves?

We have all heard about the benefits of eating the rainbow, right? Well this philosophy based on Ayurveda takes it to another level. It’s all about eating foods of certain colors that help to realign us emotionally. If you are into CHAKRAS, you will understand even more how certain colors encourage healing within your body.


Here’s how it works:

RED for ENERY (Root Chakra) - If you are feeling run down, fatigued, burnt out, lazy or lethargic, red foods such as tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries and beets will help to boost your energy levels and body temperature.

ORANGE for CONFIDENCE & SELF-WORTH (Creativity Chakra) - If you are low on confidence, doubting yourself, or feeling unworthy of love, get yourself some oranges and do it fast! Things like mandarins, mangos, carrots, squash, pumpkin, and yams will all make a big impact on your feelings.

YELLOW for JOY (Solar Plexus Chakra) - If you are feeling depressed, sad, or emotional, hook yourself up with some banana soft serve, sweet corn on the cob, some fresh pineapple, or some yellow peppers and watch how your mood changes. Yellow is a natural mood enhancer, so skip the prozac or the bottle of red and make yourself something bright!

GREEN for REJUVENATION (Heart Chakra) - Feeling low on vital energy? Are you stressed? Overworked? Experiencing adrenal fatigue, acidity, or toxicity? Then green is the color for you! Throw your favorite organic greens in to a juicer or make a gigantic salad and feel what happens to your feelings of stress. Likely they will melt away due to the live enzymes, oxygen, and chlorophyll.

VIOLET for PEACE (Third-Eye Chakra) - These foods will help to calm your energy and bring you peace if you are feeling frustrated, angry, or unable to forgive. Foods like eggplant, purple kale, concord grapes, purple carrots, and so on will help to bring you peace and calm! Whip up a fresh smoothie with your favorite purple foods!

WHITE for STRENGTH (Crown Chakra) - Things like mushrooms, garlic, ginger, onion, lychees, coconut, and other tropical fruits help to give you strength and power. If you are feeling defeated or down on yourself then enjoy some white foods and experience a surge in your own inner strength.
