Ayurvedic Cooking for Optimal Health
Ayurveda encompasses the healing of body, mind and spirit through diet, lifestyle (including yoga and meditation), medicinal Ayurvedic herbs, and rejuvenating Ayurvedic therapies. Ayurvedic nutrition shows that food combining and proper cooking methods can make a vital contribution to continuous good health, as proper digestion is one of the basic principles to optimum health.
Ayurveda can provide great insight about which foods will suit and balance you according to your constitution, dosha imbalance, and season. Ayurvedic cuisine is unique for its emphasis on making sure each dish is cooked and spiced so as to achieve maximum digestibility to avoid the formation of toxins (which is a result of improperly digested food).
Learn to prepare and cook foods properly and avoid combinations that will create toxins in your body.
Learn to choose a suitable diet to bring balance, harmony and health into your life, based on Ayurvedic principles and your body type.

Learn the basic Ayurvedic concepts of Rasa (taste), Virya (action), Vipak (post digestive effect) and Prabhav (specific action) as applied to foods and spices.
