Ayurveda is India's scientific teaching for a healthy life. It is the collective, traditional Indian knowledge over thousands of years about the mechanism of human life in its holistic dimension, how to achieve and maintain perfect health and inner harmony and how to live continuously and harmoniously with nature.
Ayurveda asserts that every root is a medicine so there is no good or bad food and provides a logical approach to designing balanced foods for optimal nutrition by formulating food groups that work in harmony, induce proper digestion and promote maximum absorption of essential nutrients.
There is a famous quote “We are what we eat” but Ayurveda says, “We are not just what we eat, we are what we digest and assimilate.” Ayurveda cooking is a rational way to prepare food keeping in mind the dietary needs of the individual based on their body constitution that is their prakriti.
Ayurveda recommends us to eat sattvic (pure and fresh) foods avoiding rajasic (fiery) and tamasic (spoiled) foods. Sattvic foods are fresh and light and help to clear the mind. Ayurvedic food habits help us to regularize absorption, assimilation and elimination.
