All you need to know about Ayurvedic diet and cooking along with easy-to-follow recipes backed by the timeless wisdom of Indian heritage to balance your Vata Dosha... India is well-known for its traditional medical systems, which include Ayurveda, Siddha, and Unani. Ayurveda, which derives from ancient Vedic scriptures, is a 5,000-year-old medical ideology and philosophy based on the idea that we are all made up of different types of energy. It is more than just a medicinal system; it is often regarded as a way of life. Ayurveda contains some miraculous practices for body rejuvenation through diet and nutrition. It is a user-friendly and practical immersive system that helps the person to be self-sufficient and accountable for his/her health. It is a system of empowerment, prosperity, and long life. According to Ayurveda, there are 3 elemental bodily doshas—Vata (space or air, equated with the nervous system), Pitta (fire, equated with enzymes), and Kapha (water, equated with the digestive system) (earth and water, equated with mucus). Psychology is governed by a parallel set of mental doshas such as Satogun, Rajogun, and Tamogun. Each dosha has unique characteristics and roles within the body and mind; the natural predominance of one or more doshas describes a person’s physical constitution (Prakriti) and personality. According to Ayurvedic practice, a significant etiologic aspect of the illness is a mismatch between the bodily and mental doshas. Each has its own special strengths and weaknesses. To align these, the concepts of proper lifestyles, eating behaviors, and daily and seasonal routines practiced in Ayurveda can be implemented with appropriate modification. Ayurveda emphasizes Ahara (diet) and Anna (food) as a means to a decent life, fitness, and well-being and asserts that proper nutrition nourishes the mind, body, and soul. The elimination of toxins from the system and the electrochemical enrichment of the body are the primary goals of Ayurvedic cooking. It is thus both an art and a science when cooking becomes alchemy and food becomes Tantra. With this “Ayurveda Cookbook For Beginners Series,” I provide you the best dietary practices, recipes, and everything you need to balance and heal your doshas alongside enjoying the authentic Indian flavors. This guide’s Ayurvedic cooking techniques tell what to eat and how to eat to help the healing process and assist the body in removing contaminants and maintaining equilibrium. It has a wealth of knowledge on healthy diet, proper food combinations, food quality, food timing, and cooking methods. In this guide, you’ll discover: ✔️An Introduction to Ayurvedic Cooking ✔️Benefits of Ayurvedic Cooking and Diet ✔️Common Misconceptions in Ayurvedic Cooking ✔️Rules to Consider for Ayurvedic Diet ✔️An Introduction to Vata Dosha ✔️Tastes that Pacify Vata ✔️Tips to Set Up Your Ayurvedic Kitchen (utensils, spices, cooking oils, and other stuff) ✔️The Recipes (featuring soups, rice dishes, sabji, curries, raitas, chutneys, sweets, beverages, and special Indian treats) ✔️Food Combining for Doshas ✔️Vata Seasonal Guide (Ritucharya) ✔️Ayurvedic Diet FAQs All the recipes in this cookbook are traditional, time-tested over decades, and are based on Ayurvedic principles. They can aid a yogi's yoga practice by keeping the mind calm and are thus ideal for all yoga practitioners. The beauty is that the recipes are not only sattvic in nature but are also tasty and have that authentic Indian taste! Now don’t bother, claim your copy right away!!
