Contrary to what you might think, eating Ayurvedic diet doesn’t mean eating only legumes, rice and vegetables. Basic Ayurveda diet principles can be applied to any cuisine, be it Mediterranean, Asian, European, or whichever one you prefer.
“What we eat affects our emotions and can create a predisposition for both psychological and physical disorders. Just as wrong emotion can upset our digestion, so wrong digestion can upset our emotions.
- Dr.David Frawley, Ayurvedic Healing
“You are what you eat” is a saying that you have probably heard before. It holds true not only on the physical but also on the psychological level. When you mostly eat hamburger and french fries, well, you probably feel like hamburger and french fries (not a very nice feeling).
So how to eat healthy?
The most important principle in the Ayurvedic Diet is that your food is fresh (without pesticides, additives and other chemicals), seasonal, and as often as possible local. Fresh doesn’t, however, mean raw. The best are freshly cooked, whole meals. What is good for one person might not be good for others. As per Ayurveda, we should eat based on our constitution. We check your constitution and suggest you diet plan and chart for the healthy ayurvedic living.
