Favorite aya diet?

topic posted Mon, October 22, 2007 - 9:31 AM by  Kokopelli
Interested to know what everyone's favorite diet / combo of foods you consume before partaking in aya. Also, do you keep the same diet with different aya ingredients? Maybe even a few good aya safe recipes you might care to post?

    I assume you mean the MAOI diet, not the spiritual dieta, which is another story.
    Here is how it goes for me basically:

    Day 0:
    - plain rice (for breakfast)
    - yogurt (mid day)
    - plain water and apple juice (throughout the day)
    No foods and very little drinking in the ~6 hours before Aya.

    Day 1:
    No special diet, excepting that I don't eat until 3-4 pm. I'm not hungry anyway.

    Eating on day 1 too early would give me a slight headache.

        Other than the Moai diet,

        I eat whilst journeying'

        Rice, fruit, clean water, nuts berries an fruit juices.

        I can not handle being hungry and the Ceremonies I partake in sometimes take a week before resolution.

        So the first day I eat rice and drink plenty of clean water in the morning.

        Only fruit and water 4 hours before.

        It is easy to purge'

        Small amounts of fruit and juices and water whilst journeying.

        The next lunch time a small piece of chicken with rice and greens followed by a small bowl of fruit and nuts.

        Evening time we take Ceremony again.

        The only meats that I eat jouring the whole week is a little chicken.

        Vitamins and minerals are extreemly important as you require the energy to journey.

        Nothing worse than feeling hungry and nausious whilst trying to focus on the bitter tea'

          lol, you eat chicken *during* ayahuasca ceremonies?!

          The first time I arrived in the community I lived with in Ecuador, I had just finished a huge dinner of salty chicken and french fries. It was my second time eating meat after years of vegetarianism. And I arrived at night, with my totally full stomach, to an offer for an ayahuasca ceremony. They said I could just puke the meal.

          I was somewhat relieved when the ayahuasca drinking was canceled.

          Probably my favorite dieta foods are manioc and boiled green bananas. But outside of south america, rice and vegetables is nice.

            OH, wait, now I get it!

            During the *week* of intense ayahuasca drinking.

            I was trying to picture someone munching on chicken after taking a cup of ayahuasca . . . what a bizarre idea.

              Is it true/necessary you should fast for 2 weeks prior?

                absolutely not. There are certain drugs that should be avoided for that long or longer, but food is fine. Some attention should be given to the maoi safety diet, but even that is often blown out of proportion.

                You can follow the traditional shamanic diet for as long as you'd like, but i wouldn't tell a beginner to do so for more than a day or a few at most. It won't hurt you not to. There's info around here about the shamanic diet-- no salt, sweets, fat ... etc

    My personal pre-aya diet is just about keeping it clean and simple. This isnt a rule, just what works for me.I start about a week or two weeks before depending on what spirit dictates

    No refined Sugar or any kind of swetener. Maybe very minimal fruit.
    No Pork
    Very Minimal salt and oil if any.
    Preferrably organic ingredients
    No sex or sexual release
