The author Myra, decided to compile a book to show that Ayurvedic principles are universal. They can apply anywhere in the world – to all kinds of cuisines, environments and ingredients.
Ayurveda as the science of living is holistic in nature. It considers us as a part of the world around us. Ayurveda offers us the simple idea that we thrive when we connect to the natural flow of life force, or prana. And this applies no matter where you are on the planet.
A holistic approach to life requires an understanding that everything affects everything else. What this means when it comes to food, is that a balance of the qualities present in what we eat will bring balance into us. Likewise, an imbalance of the qualities in what we eat will create imbalance in our bodies and minds. Food is either our poison or our best medicine.
The book offers 108 simple recipes to inspire to prepare food that is medicinal and healing. With these recipes, inspired from global cuisines, you can prepare legumes in an interesting, easy to digest manner that brings nourishment to your body and a smile to your face.
