ayurvedic cooking

private cooking instruction

Preparing food is a beautiful way to express love and gratitude, and cooking with consciousness can powerfully nourish and heal as well.

Though we live in a world of constant change, the foods and seasonings we choose to consume can have a direct balancing effect on our mental and physical states.

Ayurvedic cooking doesn't have to be limited to Indian cooking. Many different cuisines from around the world can be prepared according to Ayurvedic principles to promote health and well-being for ourselves and our loved ones.

 

How? Divya Alter says it simply, "Because you will be applying the ancient principles of selecting high-quality ingredients and preparing them in ways that are compatible for your type of digestion."
