Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old medical philosophy and practice, evolved from the idea that we all are made up of different types of energy or doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. To stay balanced and healthy, it is essential that we learn how to eat for our body type and choose foods that are energetically suitable for our constitution.
This Ayurvedic Food List intends to make this goal easier for you. The PDF document, curated by dosha, outlines the general list of foods you should favor or limit. Please note I use the word “limit” rather than “avoid”. I believe that in order to create a balanced lifestyle, we should not take a restrictive eating approach as this can lead to increased cravings and disinhibition, overeating, and binge-eating.
Instead, I invite you to download this PDF. Have it handy as it can support you in taking intuitive decisions. However, I want you to first listen to your body.
Choosing foods full of Prana is also key. This can be achieved by consuming fresh, organic, and wholesome foods. And by cooking more at home, with care and love.
