AYURVEDIC NUTRITON – BASIC POINTS
Maintaining good digestion is Ayurveda’s key to health and prevention of illness; after all, one can obtain from food only the elements that one can digest out of it.
Ayurveda prescribes some commonsense guidelines for how to promote optimum digestion.
1. Eat in a settled atmosphere:
Never eat when you are upset
Always sit to eat
Do not talk while chewing
Do not work, read, drive, or watch TV while you eat
Stop eating while you still have some room left
2. Eat at roughly the same times every day
Try to have your main meal at midday, followed by a brief rest; digestion is strongest at midday
Allow three to six hours between meals
Eat only if you are hungry
3. Avoid iced beverages and freezing cold items with meals – these interfere with digestion by cooling the digestive ‘fire.’ Sip water, juice or herb tea with meals
4. Avoid evening consumption of cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese and cultured buttermilk
Milk is fine alone, or with sweet-tasting foods such as cereals, sweets, toast and muffins but should be drunk separately from other foods (at least twenty minutes apart).
Note: milk can by made more digestible by boiling it after purchase, even if it is pasteurised.
Use Honey only in its raw form, and do not cook or bake with it. Uncooked honey is considered a rejuvenator, but when cooked or heated beyond lukewarm it is considered to act as a very undesirable toxin.
The best meals are made from fresh ingredients, cooked well, and served warm:
Minimize raw foods
Use delicious recipes
Make the meal beautiful
A happy cook in a pleasant environment prepares the most healthful food!
Try to experience all six ayurvedic tastes at every meal: sweet, sour, salt, bitter, astringent, and pungent. Different people should favor some tastes over others, depending on the time of year and the condition of their body, and their body types.
The six tastes of Ayurveda:
Sweet: oils, sugar, milk, butter, ice cream, wheat, oats, rice
Sour: cheese, yogurt, lemon juice, citrus and sour fruits, vinegar, alcohol, fermented foods
Bitter: leafy greens, lettuce, tonic water, tumeric, fenugreek, eggplant
Astringent: legumes (beans and lentils), pears, apples, potatoes, persimmons, cranberries, pomegranates
Pungent: Cayenne, peppers, ginger, cumin, spicy foods
TASTES TO PACIFY DOSHAS:
VATA: Sweet, sour and salty
PITTA: Bitter, astringent and sweet
KAPHA: Bitter, astringent and Pungent
If you are unsure of your ayurvedic body type, or if you are cooking for a group, the following guidelines are helpful (Be sure to make available a variety of foods with separate tastes):
In cold, dry weather, favour sweet, sour and salty tasting foods
In cool, wet weather, favor bitter, pungent and astringent foods
In hot weather, favor sweet, astringent and bitter tasting foods.
