There are so many different kinds of cookbooks out today, everything from The South Beach Diet to Cajun cooking, there are all kinds of foods for every taste. So, what is Ayurvedic cooking all about? Ayurveda helps us to choose and prepare foods that contribute to the health of our body, mind and spirit. It looks at the balance of each individual, and teaches us the best ways to eat for our well-being. It’s about harmony. It’s great to learn to cook Ayurvedically because we are then able to have more choices, and more control over our food habits. I have a few of my favorite recipes in the back of the “What’s Your Dosha, Baby?” book and I am always reading Ayurvedic cookbooks and trying out new dishes. One of my favorite cookbooks is by Dr. Vasant Lad, and his wife Usha. This couple spends time together in the kitchen, and at the table, which is so important in a loving relationship.
