AYURVEDIC COOKING CLASSES
Food is the basis of Ayurveda, the main condition for complete effectiveness, both in the prevention and in the treatment of diseases. This system sees food and its role in everyday life in a unique and integrated way.
Ayurvedic nutrition can contribute to physical, mental and emotional health, pointing to a direct relationship between the factors involved in eating with a state of health or illness. It is commonly said that you are what you eat, but Ayurveda goes beyond and says that you are what you are capable of digesting. So the main point on Ayurvedic cooking is to transform the food that is good for you, the food that you need, into something tasteful using an abundant range of vegetables, fruits, grains, cereals, seeds and oils.
On Ayurvedic cooking classes you will learn about how the spices can be true allies in the kitchen, improving our digestive capacity and bringing different flavours for the food. We will also talk about how the six flavours of life (sweet, sour, pungent, salty, astringent and bitter) are found in food and their power of aligning the five elements in our system. As all in Ayurveda, foods and spices can be used in different ways and according to the person’s digestive power, constitution, age, season and daily habits.
