The Ayurvedic Diet to Improve Your Health and Well Being
1. The fresher food, the better the food:
It is time to change say no to longer resort to the ready made, package foods which are loaded with preservatives. Left overs are not going to get you what you need. In Ayurveda, you will not find any left overs. Food starts going stale just barely for a few hours after it is prepared and there will not be amount of refrigeration is going to change that food. So why should we keep tamasi food in the fridge, much less feed it to your body days later? Instead, it is time to eat our food as medicine and eat it as fresh as possible. Consider eating and apple at peak freshness, if am not wrong the taste of will be good. And there will be a lot of chances after you eat it you feel great it will be a kind refresh to your mind and body. But what will you feel after eating an apple which is soft and wilted? that might not be so tasty as the fresh one which you had.
2. Ayurveda is not exclusively a vegetarian thing:
The philosophy of Ayurveda is really not a vegetarian philosophy. It is an ancient text which provide detailed ways and means of preparing meats. And most practitioners will advise to use meat as garnish. From a general health point of view, animal foods are becoming increasingly toxic as we continue to industrialize food production, so you have to be really careful about where and how you buy your meats.
3. Eating the Ayurvedic way doesn’t mean eating only Indian cuisine:
Despite the general consensus, Ayurvedic cooking does not have to exclusively yield Indian food as long as it is prepared with Ayurvedic principles. It can fit into just about any cuisine.
4. Ghee aids weight loss and lowers cholesterol:
Many of us will think that Ghee will bring on the weight. But Ghee is vital to feed and build the dhaatus and pacify the vata and pita doshas. This ancient recipe is known to be an cure for nervous system disorder. In many Indian households they used to store Ghee in a very large vats and pass it down from the one generation to the other.
5. Eating ginger before your meal fuels up your digestive fire & enables you to keep your weight in check:
If we eat a little slice of ginger just before 15 minutes of have our meals it will fuel our digestive fire. Just not that if we take it with rock salt it will reduce vata, or if we take it with rock chandy and it will reduce pitta and with the honey it will reduce kapha.
