Know Your Ayurvedic Body Type
Ayurveda classifies the human body into 3 categories or types depending on the kind of energies or doshas which are proportionately strongest in them. These include Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Vata represents the Air & Space elements, Pitta represents the Fire & Water elements and Kapha represents the Water & Earth elements. An Ayurvedic Body is one that works in perfect equilibrium with all forces of nature. Once the body is healthy and balanced from the inside, the same reflects on the outside as well. And this is why, Ayurveda stresses on knowing your body type well so that you can work towards maintaining it well. Factors such as stress, unhealthy eating habits and insufficient lifestyle, all contribute in creating imbalances in our body. Such imbalances disturbs the natural processes of the body, leading to unwanted accumulation of toxins (ama).

The Ultimate Cleanser
My friends who follow Ayurveda already know balancing your agni (the sacred fire within) leads to optimal health and prevents ama which is harmful, particularly digested food from accumulating in your body and producing toxins
Kitchari (kich-a-ree) has been the traditional Ayurvedic cleansing food since as far back as 1350. So unlike whatever new fad diet you might have tried; Kitchari has been proven for over 700 years.
Here are some reasons why kitchari is an amazing cleansing food:
- Kitchari has all the amino acids needed to form a complete protein leading to balanced energy and mental clarity during the cleanse.
- Kitchari is easy to digest giving the digestive system a break and time to recover.
- Kitchari gently removes toxic build up from the intestines and helps to facilitate their removal completely from the body.
Although kitchari is ideal for cleansing, it is delicious and healthy for you.
There is no reason why you should wait to try it!

My search for better health has now led me to follow an Eastern discipline for eating. At this moment in my life, I’m immersed in the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. I have discovered new health and vitality while practicing this lifestyle. Being a chef, first and foremost, I passionately want to serve those who want to feed the temple of their soul because that is my Dharma.
