Ayurvedic food & lifestyle 2019 trend actually reveals ancient ways

"Ayurvedic recipes contain all the goodness and immune-boosting ingredients you could ever want from your food whilst being extremely tasty to eat."
Chris Davies

The Ayurvedic food & lifestyle 2019 trend currenly being talked about by glossies actually reveals ancient ways of eating and living going back 5000 years and heralds from India.

Trends recently have been more about raw foods and cold juices being the way to go when it comes to looking after ourselves.

"However, Ayurvedic knowledge tell us that we need warm, nourishing food in winter...cooked food stokes our digestive fire" says Chris Davies of Maharishi Ayurveda.

From the Sanskrit word Agni, digestive fire is the energy needed to break down your food, assimilate what's useful and eliminate what's not. Eating cooked food strengthens your Agni. You're reducing digestive stress, absorbing more nutrients and removing unwanted toxins.

Then there is the Ayurveda phenomenon of eating for your bodily type - Dosha.

Understanding your Dosha or constitution increases your chances of success in eating the Ayurvedic way.
There are 3 Doshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha and you need to find which one you best resonate with. Typically, Vata’s are energetic and inspired with ideas. Pitta’s are precise and determined. Kapha’s are loyal, strong, resilient and determined.

Physique determines your Dosha too. Typically, Vata types have sensitive digestion and need to eat at consistent times. Pitta’s are more prone to acid digestion while Kapha types are more susceptible to weight gain.

Chris added: "Ayurvedic recipes contain all the goodness and immune-boosting ingredients you could ever want from your food whilst being extremely tasty to eat."
