Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of health and healing based in the principle that each human being is unique, and has a distinct individual constitution, genetic inheritance, and predisposition to certain ailments. This is the first Ayurvedic Cooking book that allows you to easily implement Ayurvedic principles in your cooking and improve your health without devoting long hours of study to the subject or breaking your budget. Learn how to cure insomnia and indigestion, even out mood swings, and much more, just by making food choices based on your Ayurvedic constitution. The recipes include familiar favorites - such as baked apples, chicken burgers, and potato salad - making it a practical, easy-to-use addition to your kitchen and home.
