Ayurvedic Practices for Food, Cooking, Digestion, and in the Kitchen
Everything works in rhythms. Nature has its own unique rhythm and when we observe nature, we can notice how there is a beautiful balance to all things around us.
When it comes to our food, it’s not just what we eat, but how we eat. According to Ayurveda, we may be eating the most clean, pure, organic food – but if we aren’t digesting it properly, it’s not going to benefit us the way we want it to.

Frequently Asked Questions
I feel like I’m pretty balanced, will I still benefit from this?
You will! The practices and information presented in this will help you elevate your already balanced lifestyle and also help you prevent imbalances that sometimes occur. You’ll learn about why and how certain digestive issues occur and how to avoid them. Ayurveda teaches us that imbalances often begin in the digestive tract, so understanding how this happens will empower you to prevent them from happening. You’ll also be able to provide basic information to your students, clients, friends, and family.
I don’t know anything about Ayurveda, will I still benefit from this?
Totally! We include an introduction to Ayurveda and how it applies to food, cooking, and digestion.
I already have a lot of education in Ayurveda, will I get anything out of this?
Absolutely! It’s always helpful to hear familiar information in different ways, especially if you want to share it with others.
Will this help me with ongoing issues or problems I have with my own health?
We aren’t doctors, so we recommend consulting your doctor before taking on any practices if you have any specific concerns. The content in this will outline ways to find balance through the lens of Ayurveda.
I can’t cook. Can I still take this?
Of course! In fact, Lisa often talks about how she hated cooking until she began studying Ayurveda. It’s so much more than simply cooking.
