In this 3 hour course, we will explore how food affects us. Using the Ayurvedic Principles of the 6 Tastes, we will learn how spices in a meal effect digestion and flavor.
Together we will learn about the palate through the Ayurvedic Lens. This includes a deep discussion of the 6 flavors of life. We will sample each flavor and discuss how too much or too little flavor impacts health and diet in general. We will then eat and drink a simple lunch fit for the winter and speak about how the meal has been adjusted to support the qualities present in these months. The combination of this experience, along with discussion, will illuminate how we can review and change our food choices (from diet, to time of day, to spices, and food groups) during other months of the year and stages in our lives.
The workshop will be hands on. You will be provided a handout and recipe preparation. There will be plenty of time as well for questions.
