While meditation can work any time with anyone in most any state of being, it doesn’t hurt to power your body with plant-based foods that will invoke a feeling of calm over us, especially for for those of us who are a little type-A and have trouble calming ourselves for meditative purposes from time to time (I am looking in the mirror on this one). Consider this list as a duel purpose one — you can think of eating these foods specifically to get your body in a more constant state of calm, or, you can think of this as a primer for those working their way into meditation and need a little boost to calm the body. These foods will help in both respects. Either way you eat it, you’ll be munching your way to a more zenned-out you!
