The Art of Ayurvedic Nutrition offers deep practical know-how and tangible steps to empower you to better understand and experience yourself and the food that nourishes you.
“This is the book equivalent of the aphorism, ‘give a man a fish and he can eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he can eat for a lifetime.’ While there are many books that outline principles of Ayurveda and then proceed to provide a list of recipes, this book helps us apply the principles to our own thought process and understanding so well that we can tailor our own recipes to whatever ingredients we have on hand, in whatever climate or state of being we find ourselves, and prepare and eat food in ways that promote optimal health. I love this book." —Dr. Claudia Welch, DOM, author of Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life: Achieving Optimal Health and Wellness Through Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, and Western Science
"I'm so glad I found this book. It's a great read and I recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about Ayurveda and nutrition. The explanations are clear and concise, easy to understand and grasp the concepts. The suggestions for balancing your dosha are easy to implement and the recipes work well. I tried the coconut curry which was a triumph with my South Indian partner. I'm an Ayurvedic Practitioner and found this book useful to help my patients understand the Ayurvedic fundamentals and healing concepts. Highly recommendable and great value for money." —Dean Flexen, Ayurvedic practitioner, Naturveda UK
