Ayurveda, an ancient holistic science of healing, offers a logical approach for determining correct diet based upon the element comprising an individual’s constitution: vata, pitta and kapha. The approach is quite different from the contemporary view of balanced diet, based on eating from various food groups. Each food substance has a specific taste. The moment a substance touches the tongue, the first experience is the taste. Taste is a very important quality and energy that has a direct effect in bodily doshas.

The ancient Vedic culture approached food with great reverence. The handling of each food item completely reflects its vital power and taste. Approach each food item with a respect for the universal intelligence. The natural grain of each vegetable will tell you how it is to be cleaned and cut.
