Soul Food

We love Ananda's approach to eating following an Ayurvedic diet based on your Dosha. Learning what your own body loves is a valuable lesson to take away with you. For example Vata body types (air and space) lean towards light and dry food. In order to balance this oily, moist and heavy foods with tones of sweet, sour and salt must be added to the diet. The aim is to revitalize the body through a healthy approach to diet and lifestyle.
