You surely have got scolding from your grandma or mother for all that junk food that you relish (especially if you are an Indian). Go for Ayurvedic food if you want to have a long, healthy life, they say. But what is this Ayurvedic food, you ask. Some would say it’s anything vegetarian; others would refer to it as boiled food and many more believe it has got to do with only fruits and vegetables. Well according to Ayurveda the perfect Ayurvedic meal is that which is easily digestible, provides nourishment to all tissues, does not create ama(toxins) and does not create imbalance in the threedoshas (body humors). Unlike modern nutritional systems, which recommend ‘universally-applicable guidelines’ for all, Ayurveda has always had an individualized approach to nutrition.
