To unlock your Third Eye chakra, there are several effective techniques. The first is healthy living, intuitive, and mindful eating is governed by the Third Eye chakra. So, start by eating healthy because what we eat will be your fuel for the day.
Balance Your Third Eye Chakra With These Ingredients
Cocoa: Dark chocolate helps with mental clarity and triggers the release of serotonin (the feel-good hormone). The flavonoids in cocoa have been shown to improve blood flow to the brain and the magnesium in cocoa helps relieve stress and promote relaxation.
Indigo foods: Grapes, blackberries, blueberries, eggplant, purple cabbage, and purple sweet potato.
Foods rich in Omega 3: Salmon, tofu, walnuts, flax seeds, and chia seeds all contain high levels of Omega 3 which are great for boosting brain power and balancing the third eye chakra.

Ginger & Garlic Tofu
A classic that is so simple yet full of so much flavor. This tofu treat can be eaten on its own or with lots of green vegetables and a bed of jasmine rice. Also, you’ll want to write down the ingredients for the marinade because once you try this, you’ll want to put it on everything!
Prep time: 15 minutes
Wait Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 20 minutes
- 1 block of firm tofu, cut into 1/2 in thick slices
- 2 tbsp. canola oil
- 2 tbsp. tablespoon soy sauce
- ¼ cup sesame oil
- 2 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- Press your tofu in order to remove the moisture.
- Once pressed, place the tofu and all the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Mix well.
- Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
- If you are planning on making rice or any accompaniments, this is the perfect time to get those started. We recommend broccoli and bok choi as being the perfect pairings for this dish.
- Once the tofu is done marinating heat your canola oil in a pan and fry the tofu for 5 minutes on each side. Flip when golden brown.
- Serve the tofu on rice with steamed vegetables.
Tofu Tip: When cooking tofu, ensure that you are not overcrowding the pan - you’ll want to give it space and leave it undisturbed for around 4-5 minutes to get the perfect golden brown look and texture.
