Updated on:

/

Written by: Tina Caro

Wicca is the religion of nature, of fruitfulness, of life, but not all Wicca sees natural reality in the same way. Let’s learn more about the type of foods Wiccas should eat!

The arch goes from pan-naturalism or ultra-ecological deification to the need to carry out rituals and magical acts “in” nature to those who see nature as an intermediate sphere between the human and the divine, or as a curtain in which manifests the divinity according to the esoteric law of correspondence.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Wiccans usually follow special diets to improve different aspects of their life because everything is related to their spirituality.
  • Certain foods provide certain energies.
  • Wiccans usually look for diets rich in fruits, vegetables, and natural and healthy proteins.

Also, “The whole in the part; the part in the whole”, up to those who conceive nature as a neo-romantic aspect with which one does not necessarily have to interact because many Wicca practitioners have little contact with pure natural environments.

Let’s talk about Wiccan diet

Wiccans must follow special diets to improve aspects of their life because everything is related to their spirituality.

Certain foods provide certain energies. They also perform specific rituals at mealtime.

In some spiritual paths, they prohibit eating meat or certain types of food on certain dates.

They look for diets rich in fruits, vegetables, and natural and healthy proteins.

 

Classification of foods by color

The recommended Wiccans foods for each Sabbath

The Wicca Year Celebration Wheel includes the full calendar and lunar year festivities with the eight solar sabbat feasts and the 13 full moon esbat festivals.

The Sabbaths are Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, and Mabon, linked to equinoxes and solstices and intermediate agrarian feasts.

Thus, events of fruitfulness, hope, harvesting of fruits, brightness and warmth, darkness, rebirth, and naturalist death are recreated and participated.

The most intriguing thing about Wiccans nutrition is that, basically, each Sabbat has the magic of the colors, flavors, fragrances of the month to which it belongs, and often of the season from which it begins.

How not to associate strawberries with Beltane or pumpkin with Samhain?

It is as vital as a magical job to combine the right foods with our celebrations. This means honoring the gods while respecting the magic of change.

As in ancient times, the famous banquets and dances to honor the wheel of the year can be reproduced on your tables with small tricks by true priestesses of the moon.

Below are foods suitable for each Sabbath and also some recipes to enrich your celebrations.

Yule

Traditional dishes include foods based on nuts, apples, pears, cider-dipped sweets or cumin, onions, carrots, potatoes, and pork in all its forms.

Suitable drinks are hot punch, hibiscus tea or ginger, mead.

Imbolc

The traditional courses almost exclusively include dishes based on milk and dairy products.

Not to forget the cream made with milk and eggs.

Spicy and full-bodied foods in honor of the Sun are also ideal.

Curry and all dishes based on peppers, onions, leeks, shallots, garlic or chives.

Spicy wines and dishes containing raisins are also traditional, all foods that symbolize the Sun.

Bread is the special guest of this Sabbat. But let’s not forget the blackberries, all the berries, all types of cereals, and the products that mature in summer.

Beer and roasted lamb are a perfect combination.

Mabon

The traditional courses include the fruits of the second harvest, so cereals predominate, especially wheat.

Apples are a specialty in this festival also in the form of cider.
