Healthy Cooking is about guiding principles rather than rules:

  • Food should be light, easy to digest and assimilate
  • Heavier food is OK in Winter but in Summer it must be lighter
  • Use spices intelligently to balance the doshas
  • Cooked food is considered easier to digest than raw
  • Certain foods do not go well with others eg: Milk does not go well with sour fruits or banana, yoghurt and banana are also incompatible.
  • Different sorts of food are required at different times eg: pregnancy and post illness
  • Ideal foods are ‘tridoshic’, balancing all three doshas eg: green mung dhal and coriander
