The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook Excerpt :

Ayurveda is a holistic healing tradition from India whose history is linked to the development of yoga. It is an ancient system in which physical and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful diet based on one’s individual constitution. Ayurveda is about achieving a physical and spiritual balance through a number of means, including yoga, aromatherapy, and diet. This all-vegetarian cookbook based on Ayurvedic traditions features delectable and nutritious recipes that appeal to particular doshas, which are one’s personal constitution based on physical and mental characteristics: fire (pitta), air (vata), and earth (kapha). (The book includes a dosha questionnaire so readers can determine their own.) And while the recipes are authentically Ayurvedic, they feature easy-to-find ingredients and modern-day cooking methods appropriate for busy schedules. The book also includes yoga postures, cleansing programs, and information on aromatherapy, color therapy, and Abhyanga massage. There are also suggested meat substitutions for non-vegetarians. (Ayurveda is not exclusively vegetarian, although this book is.) Written with both converts and beginners in mind, The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook is a twenty-first-century approach to a five-thousand-year-old tradition that will restore your health, energy, and sense of well-being.

The Tastes of Ayurveda Excerpt :

Ayurveda, the five thousand-year-old healing tradition from India linked to the development of yoga, is based on the concept that one's physical, mental, and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful diet based on one's individual constitution. In this vegetarian cookbook, Amrita Sondhi, author of The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook (now in its fourth printing), provides new twists on traditional Ayurvedic recipes that are also inspired by the growing popularity of whole grains (quinoa, bulgur, and barley) and raw foods.The Ayurvedic diet is based on the concept of three "doshas": vata (air), pitta (fire), and kapha (earth). Each of us has a primary dosha that we can strive to maintain at a healthy balance, but which can cause problems if excessive. The book includes a questionnaire so readers can determine their own primary dosha and then look for recipes that will help them to maintain or reduce it for optimal health.Recipes include modern interpretations of Indian cuisine (spinach feta and green chili samosas and mango and coconut kulfi), and Ayurvedic spins on vegetarian fare (sprouted barley rainbow pilaf and raw zucchini hummus). The book also includes yoga and breathing exercises that one can easily do at home or at work, full-color recipe photos, and information on sprouting/fermenting techniques and backyard gardening.The Tastes of Ayurveda offers simple and delicious ways to achieve a more healthful and serene life.Amrita Sondhi is a yoga instructor, Ayurvedic cooking teacher, and the owner of Movement, a sustainable fiber clothing line.

  • Genre: Health & Fitness
  • Pages : 256
  • ISBN 10 : 9781631523489

Sacred Delicious Excerpt :

Sacred & Delicious is an award-winning vegetarian cookbook, a primer on Ayurveda (India’s ancient wellness system), and a gorgeous food memoir that celebrates the healing power of food. Author Lisa Mitchell writes inspiring and clear prose about the power of the Ayurvedic system to sustain good health and reverse chronic health problems, recounting her own recovery. The book includes 108 recipes and more than 60 full-page color photos. Most of the dishes include vegan options, and all but two are gluten-free. Only ten of the recipes reflect traditional Indian cooking. The rest demonstrate how to apply the balancing principles of Ayurveda and the creative (yet subtle) use of spices to modern Western cuisines that many Westerners prefer. Mitchell shares the Vedic perspective on why food is sacred and how cooks can bring a sacred intention to their kitchen labors to approach food preparation as spiritual practice. Traditional blessings for food from various cultures are sprinkled throughout the book. In April 2019, Sacred & Delicious won silver medals in two prestigious book industry awards competitions: the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards (in the Body, Mind, Spirit category) and the Nautilus Awards (in the Food, Cooking, and Healthy Eating category). It also won the cookbook category in the Body, Mind, Spirit Book Awards and is a finalist in the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards (to be announced in June).

Ancient wisdom for balancing busy modern lives. Ayurveda is a holistic style of eastern medicine and wisdom that's thousands of years old.

The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen Excerpt :

The Ayurveda Vegan Kitchen offers people the opportunity to follow an Ayuvedic diet without the use animal products. Ayurveda is a holistic healing system developed in ancient India to increase an understanding of the human body, mind, and spirit. It organizes the elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth into three body types, or doshas. Although each person is unique, one of these doshas will predominate their constitution and will need to be balanced on a regular basis. Dairy products are important foods in traditional Ayurveda; however, for every milk-based food that Ayurvedic healers revere, there is an equally effective whole-food, vegan alternative. Following the same nutritional principles as traditional Ayurveda, Talya created over 120 delicious recipes that provide healing flavors and harmony to the mind and spirit. Easy-to-follow symbols on each recipe page show how the unique chemistry of that recipe can be used to balance the body'’s constitution. Since a healthy digestive system is at the core of ayurvedic medicine, these recipes will keep you on track and in good health.
