At the basis of Ayurveda diet is the notion that all people are different, but belong to several constitutional types - doshas. In total there are three: kapha, pitta and vata. You can describe them as three different types of energy. At different times they are present in every person, but usually one prevails: it is determined at conception, and can not be changed. Maintaining health according to Ayurveda is preserving the doshas balance inherent from birth. Each of the doshas has its own strengths and weaknesses.
Each product nourishes us, not only because it contains calories. According to Ayurveda, the most valuable thing is the natural energy component that fills it, called prana.
Overexcited vata can be balanced with the help of such tastes as sweet, sour and salty. Their diet should include rice, buckwheat, wheat, meat (except rabbit meat and beef); nuts, dates are also healthy.
Food is the main factor influencing the human body. Ayurveda persistently and quite rightly claims that malnutrition is the cause of many human diseases. According to the Ayurveda concept, food has both positive and negative qualities.
Sweet taste should prevail in our morning meals.
If you want food to bring positive emotions - add brown sugar.
At lunch the food must contain all the six tastes - sweet, sour, salty, bitter, spicy, astringent.
When the food has all the 6 flavors - it completely nourishes the body and the mind.
In the evening, neutral taste should prevail (foods that contains a lot of water, then the taste will be neutral).
You should eat when you are calm and in a good mood.
In order to enrich the food with different tastes and improve its digestion you need to use spices.
Spices should be added in small doses and only those that are suitable for you, and to those products with which they are compatible.
