Delicious Cooking for Long Life
Dr. Vasant Lad BAM&S, MAScFebruary 26th, 2016
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)Proper diet, exercise, and lifestyle promote balance and lead to a long, healthy life. Ayurveda offers a logical approach for determining a correct diet based upon an individual's constitution. This approach is quite different from the current Western definition of a balanced diet, based on eating proportionately from various food groups. Ayurveda believes that understanding the individual is the key to finding a truly balanced diet. It teaches that agni in the digestive tract is the main gate through which nutrients enter the tissues and then pass along to individual cells, maintaining the life functions. In this intimate weekend seminar with Usha and Vasant Lad, learn how to create wholesome, well-balanced meals that nourish the body, mind and spirit by gaining familiarity with individual and seasonal dietary considerations. Understand factors such as proper food combining and preparation, the best use of oils, herbs and spices, and how cooking and eating can become a spiritual practice in one’s daily life. Through lecture and hands-on demonstrations, learn how to set up an Ayurvedic kitchen and pantry, and prepare and share a delicious Ayurvedic meal as a group.
