Our divine recipy of the month.
See what is fresh and seasonal in our kitchen
Spiritual wisdom has always suggested that the best food for your mood is fresh carrying life-force (pranic )food.
Seasonal ingredients carry the most pranic & nutritional value for your immunity as you move through any season. As the Ayurvedic proverb goes “...when diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When the diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”
The body has an intelligence of its own which is cultured when we eat the foods which are correct for the season and for your own constitutional bio elemental type. If you are curious to know more about your type take my dosha quiz or let's connect for a free discovery session and Ayurvedic health coaching.
