Soul Food

Ananda take an ayurvedic approach to food consumption based on body type. 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.
