Ayurveda is a holistic healing system developed in ancient India to increase an understanding of the human body, mind, and spirit. It organizes the elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth into three body types or doshas, and even though each person is unique, one of these doshas will predominate their constitution and will need to be balanced on a regular basis. Dairy products are important foods in traditional Ayurveda; however, for every milk-based food that ayurvedic healers revere, there is an equally effective whole-food, vegan alternative. The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen follows the same nutritional principles as traditional Ayurveda and is an exceptional educational resource for people who wish to practice an ayurvedic diet without the use of animal products. Over 120 delicious recipes provide healing flavours and harmony to the mind and spirit. Notations on each recipe page show how the unique chemistry of that recipe can be used to balance the body’s constitution.
