Culinary Argan Oil: A Nutrient-Rich Addition to Your Yogi Lifestyle

Nourishing Your Practice On and Off the Mat 

Embracing a yogic lifestyle goes beyond the confines of the yoga mat; it extends into our daily choices, including what we source and eat. In this blog, we list why culinary argan oil is an ingredient that’s in line with the mindful practices of informed yogis. 

Culinary Argan Oil

Culinary Argan Oil and yoga

The Wild-harvested kernels of the Moroccan argan tree are artisanal roasted in small batches and cold-pressed extracted. It is the most sustainable oil, nothing goes to waste. And no irrigation, fertilizers or tree shakers. Organic certified. Pure as pure can be. Culinary argan oil boasts a distinctive nutty flavor and a rich nutritional profile. Packed with unsaturated fats, vitamin E, and antioxidants.

This liquid gold offers a unique blend of health benefits that align with the holistic principles of yogic living.  Extra-Virgin Culinary Argan oil (EVAO) has a balanced composition of fatty acids, including both monounsaturated (such as oleic acid) and polyunsaturated fats (such as linoleic acid). This balanced profile contributes to its potential health benefits and makes it a versatile oil for culinary use. 

Nutrient-Density for Yogic Nourishment

Informed yogis understand the importance of fueling their bodies with nutrient-dense foods. Culinary argan oil, with its abundance of heart-healthy fats and antioxidants, becomes a valuable addition to a well-balanced and wholesome diet. Try drizzling it over a nutrient-packed quinoa salad with fresh vegetables, nuts, and herbs for a vibrant and satisfying meal that fuels your body and mind.  

Mindful Eating, Mindful Living

Mindful Eating, Living

Yoga teaches us the art of mindfulness, and this extends to our choices at the dining table. Incorporating culinary argan oil into our meals becomes an opportunity to practice mindful eating — savoring each flavor, appreciating the nourishment, and fostering a deeper connection with our food. Create a mindful morning ritual by drizzling argan oil over wholegrain toast or a bowl of Greek yogurt with berries and a sprinkle of granola. 

Anti-Inflammatory Allies

A cornerstone of yogic philosophy involves minimizing inflammation in the body. Culinary argan oil’s potential anti-inflammatory properties, attributed to its antioxidants, may complement the yogi’s journey toward balance and vitality. Whip up a delicious roasted vegetable medley using argan oil as a flavorful and healthful alternative to more traditional vegetable oils. And as we are in the fall, add a dash to hearty soups. A little goes a long way!

Yogis revel in diversity, not only in their practice but also in their culinary choices. Exploring different ingredients, such as culinary argan oil, becomes a delightful venture into the world of flavors and textures, enhancing the joy of nourishing the body while honoring the spirit of exploration. Get creative with a power-packed smoothie by blending fruits, leafy greens, and a teaspoon of argan oil for a nutrient-rich and flavorful twist. And no worries about allergens: the argan fruit is a stone fruit -like dates, p, so no nut allergies. 

Informed yogis recognize that the yoga journey extends far beyond the postures and stretches on the mat. It’s a lifestyle, a conscious choice to nurture the body, mind, and soul. As you embark on your culinary exploration, consider incorporating the golden hues of culinary argan oil into your meals — a flavorful, nutrient-rich addition that resonates with the mindful and health-conscious ethos of yogic living. Let your journey be one of joy, nourishment, and a harmonious union of the yogic spirit with the choices you make, both on and off the mat. 

In our diverse and dynamic city, New York, preferences for yoga can vary widely based on individual preferences, lifestyle, and cultural influences. New York City offers a rich and eclectic yoga scene, with a multitude of options catering to different tastes and needs. More and more we see a cross-over between Yoga and Tai-Chi.

Recently I joined a class where Yoga breathing exercises fluidly matched with Tai Chi posture practices. Call me ignorant, but I’m not hearing major negative remarks on the ‘Hindu’ philosophy of Yoga by religions anymore. But hey, it’s New York. And is corporate yoga a thing of the past? What I do see booming: more and more apps, and virtual classes. And Fitness Fusion at lunchtime is a thing, too. Any how: if you have a balanced, pure, lifestyle philosophy, try our Extra-Virgin Culinary Argan Oil.
