Learn about Ayurveda and how to eat.

There is much more to Ayurveda but here are a few simple steps.


  1. Preparing Ayurveda Meals

    • 1
      Determine your Ayurveda type. The three body types or doshas are Vata (space and air), Pitta (fire and water), and Kapha (water and earth). Although you can find ways to know what your dosha is, you should consult an Ayurveda expert.

      Explore Ayurveda's wellness potential in your diet. Try a refreshing and healthy Rosehips Lassi, a blended yogurt, rosehips and cardamom drink. Recipe link below.
    • Balance Vata's airy, dryness with cooked foods such as soups or puddings. If you are Vata and feel worried or have dry skin, cook in ghee or drizzle olive oil over your food. These will weigh you down from the ill effects of Vata.
    • 4
      Enjoy cooling foods to balance Pitta, which when extreme, includes symptoms of irritability and insomnia. Juicy fruits, milk shakes and rice cakes are some of the foods that help restore balance to the Pitta dosha.
    • 5
      Harmonize Kapha's heaviness and lack of motivation with steamed foods and very little oils. Warming, pungent foods bring relief to Kapha extremes. Eat carrots, bitter greens, apples and other similar foods for balance.
