From the publisher:
Eat your way to increased energy, balanced emotions, and an overall state of calm and relaxation.
In Ayurvedic medicine there are said to be three main energies that affect our mind:
• sattva, the state of contentment and calm;
• rajas, the state of reactivity and excitability; and
• tamas, the dull, slow, and stagnant state of mind.
The good news is that there are direct ways of bringing these states into balance through what we eat. The recipes in this book are simple, seasonal, and delicious, while bringing the traditional foods of Ayurveda into the modern kitchen.Everyday Ayurveda Cooking for a Calm, Clear Mind uncovers the true potential of food to heal not only our bodies, but our minds too.
