What is Sattvic diet?

Bhagvad Gita guidelines on Diet & Gunas

There is a lot of interest on the impact sattvic bhojan can have on our wellness and well-being. Rightly so, as the food we eat influences our thought processes and nature and vice versa. The Chhāndogya Upaniṣhad emphasises on eating sattvic bhojan since eating such foods purifies the mind and becomes part of our pure consciousness. “āhāra śhuddhau sattva śhuddhiḥ” (7.26.2) People with pure minds prefer pure, sattvic bhojan.

Bhagavad Gita 17.7 mention importance of diet

Krishna explains Arjuna- The food preference is mainly of three types; the same is true for the sacrifice, austerity, and charity they are inclined toward. Now pay attention about their distinctions.
