Food is one important tool to prevent or cure disease and maintain sound health. Ayurveda gives much importance to food and nutrition. Ayurveda recommends personalizing one’s diet primarily based on body type (constitution - prakruti), and then by making the best choices about food intake, which are
based on body type. The goal of Ayurveda is to strengthen one’s digestive system by ingesting balanced foods and eliminating waste effectively and efficiently. Thus, Ayurveda recommends a proper diet on a daily and seasonal basis, along with proper eating habits, so that the body is brought to a healthy balance.
Ayurveda Cookbook is a divine blend of traditional Indian knowledge of Ayurveda (Ayurveda is a 5000+ year old Vedic Indian science that focuses on maintaining a natural well-being of a person through mind, body and consciousness) and traditional vegetarian Indian recipes based on Ayurveda.
A harmonious balance between the mind, body, and consciousness can be attained through mindful dietary habits.

This book contains a plethora of simple, easy to cook, home cooked vegetarian recipes that will enable the readers to apply their knowledge in the kitchen.
