AYURVEDA + FOOD
FOOD AS MEDICINE
To me, education around nutrition means freedom. Aren’t we sick and tired of being sick and tired? The time to reclaim our health and wellness is now. Educate yourself through resources and personal experiences. We are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to do so—let’s embrace it. Don’t make the same mistake over and over, then wonder: “Why me?”
An Ayurvedic approach to food is one based on intuition, whole foods, and diversification. Ayurvedic nutrition covers various foundational principles such as food sourcing, seasonal properties, and specific physiological and pathological considerations.
Nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all solution. What is ideal for my genealogical makeup is certainly not going to be the same as what works best for you. So, get curious. Ask questions and try everything. Do not be so quick to believe everything you read. Empower yourself to look further, research deeper and inquire for yourself. If you are yearning for guidance and mentorship, be wary of those that claim to know more about your body than you do. The one thing I can promise: No one knows more about your body than you do.
I keep this close to my heart. Whether drinking a glass of lemon water before diving into your morning coffee, or taking an hour out of your day to do a restorative yoga practice, wellness comes in a plethora of shapes and sizes.
