Description

The Ayurvedic Cookbook gives a fresh new perspective on this ancient art of self-healing. Over 250 taste-tested recipes are specifically designed to balance each constitution, with an emphasis on simplicity, ease and sound nutrition. Recipes range from exotic Indian meals to old American favorites. Amadea Morningstar, M A, a Western trained nutritionist, and Urmila Desai, a superb Indian cook, are both well-versed in a variety of healing traditions.

The Ayurvedic Cookbook includes an in-depth discussion of Ayurvedic nutrition, tridoshic perspectives and ways to make dietary change that last.
