The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen 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. Vegan Ayurvedic Cooking 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 flavors and harmony to the mind and spirit. Easy-to-follow symbols show how the unique chemistry of each recipe can be used to balance the body’s constitution.
