Ayurveda recipes from Birstein

What distinguishes the Ayurvedic cuisine?

In Ayurveda, food is both therapy and pleasure. Three lovingly prepared meals a day from fresh ingredients ensure physical and mental well-being. It is important that the menus are balanced in flavors (sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bitter and astringent). In addition, they should fit the time of day and season and, of course, take into account the individual needs of one's constitution Vata, Pitta, Kapha.

And yet: Ayurvedic cooking can be quite simple. The most important thing is to start, for example with one of the delicious recipes we present here. Enjoy it!

Ayurvedic recipes for every season

From an Ayurvedic point of view, autumn is a season dominated by Vata and Pitta. The rising autumn winds intensify the digestive fire (agni) and strain the physical strength and immunity (bala). With foods and spices dominated by sweet and tart flavors, the stabilizing earth element can now be nourished and the doshas brought into balance.
