Food is energy which gives life. Our nutritional needs and digestion are affected daily by natural rhythms and changes, which we all experience. Therefore, it is important to consume food compatible with our constitution, as well as according to the weather and our environment. Ayurveda teaches about the importance of conscious eating and gratitude. In order to have a healthy body and mind, it is essential to eat food which is fresh, ecologically grown and delicious. When we eat with love, this helps to satisfy all our senses. The process of digestion begins with the saliva in our mouth, which then stimulates our senses.
You will gain knowledge and understanding about best food combinations for different types and constitutions, how to mix food for improved digestion and performance, how and when to eat, and how the seasonal changes in nature influence your eating habits.
