Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook: Healthful, Healing Recipes for Life
by Amrita Sondhi
Paperback from Arsenal Pulp Press
Ayurveda is a holistic healing tradition from India whose history is
linked to the development of yoga. It is an ancient system in which physical
and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful
diet based on one's individual constitution.
Ayurveda is about achieving a physical and spiritual balance through
a number of means, including yoga, aromatherapy, and diet. This all-vegetarian
cookbook based on Ayurvedic traditions features delectable and nutritious
recipes that appeal to particular doshas, which are one's personal
constitution based on physical and mental characteristics: fire (pitta),
air (vata), and earth (kapha). (The book includes a dosha
questionnaire so readers can determine their own.) And while the recipes
are authentically Ayurvedic, they feature easy-to-find ingredients and
modern-day cooking methods appropriate for busy schedules.
The book also includes yoga postures, cleansing programs, and information
on aromatherapy, color therapy, and Abhyanga massage. There are also suggested
meat substitutions for non-vegetarians. (Ayurveda is not exclusively vegetarian,
although this book is.)
Written with both converts and beginners in mind, The Modern Ayurvedic
Cookbook is a twenty-first-century approach to a five-thousand-year-old
tradition that will restore your health, energy, and sense of well-being.
