“A Seasonal Conversation Over Food”
In this three-hour course, we will explore how food impacts our well-being. We will learn how healthy tissue metabolizes to form Ojas (the immune support of the body), and how the use of a Seasonal Ayurvedic Diet promotes its formation.
Using the Ayurvedic Principles of the Six Tastes and Dosha, we will learn how spices in a meal affect digestion and metabolism. We will sample each flavor and discuss how too much or too little of any of them alters health and diet in general.
We will then enjoy a simple lunch fit for the spring and discuss how the meal has been adjusted to support the qualities present in the spring months. The combination of this experience, along with discussion, will illuminate how we can review and change our food choices (from diet and time of day to spices and food groups) during other months of the year and stages in our lives.
This class will be held Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.Click here for more registration information.
