About Book:

Ayurvedic methods go back thousands of years. You are what you eat is a fact frequently forgotten in the urgency of the modern world. People look for artificial remedies such as antibiotics when causes and cures are so natural, so obvious and so well proven.

Within the Ayurvedic tradition, the food regime is a vital aspect. Wholesome meals are to be eaten calmly, followed by a short period of contemplation. Particularly recommended are energy-giving foods known as 'sattvic', (except root vegetables), whole milk, wheat-based products, rice and vegetable oil. Foods that sap energy, called 'tamasic', should be avoided. These include alcohol, coffee, pickled or cured foods and cheeses.

This book takes you back to the basics. It does not involve complicated recipes or hours of work. Fast food is available here too but in an intensely vital and satisfying form. You can discover the simple pleasure of awareness, and appreciate the properties of the ingredients.
