Using Timeless Knowledge Today
Ayurveda is derived from the ancient Sanskrit: ayu, âœlife,â and veda, âœknowledge.â As a science, Ayurveda includes all of life: the mind, the body, behavior, and the environment. Although it has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years, Ayurvedic concepts are as practical for us today as in ages past. By following simple, time-tested Ayurvedic principles in cooking and eating, both good health and a comfortable sense of well-being naturally result.
Ayurvedic food is not exotic or unusualunless you want it to be. It simply consists of any delicious food, properly cooked, with full knowledge of its effects on the health and satisfaction of the eater. Even though Ayurveda has such a long Indian history that does not mean you should only eat Indian food to be healthy. For Americans who follow a vegetarian diet or are aiming in that direction, Ayurveda includes nearly all the kinds of foods we usually enjoy in our contemporary American vegetarian cuisine. Becoming an Ayurvedic cook might only be a matter of adjusting some of your favorite recipes by increasing or decreasing certain seasonings and other ingredients to suit your individual needs at particular times of the year. Ayurveda works well everywhere. No matter the country, the same basic principles of cooking for life apply.
