Ayurveda Eating Guidelines

  • Do not drink iced or cold water especially during meals;  only have small amounts of room-temperature water or warm water or tea with a meal.

  • Only fill 3/4 of your stomach; one half with food, one quarter with liquid, and leave one quarter empty. This allows space for movement of the enzymes which aids in digestion.

  • Generally, it is easier to digest cooked, warm, soupy meals than cold, dry and solid foods.  Warmth stimulates the digestive tract.

  • It is best to wait to eat when the previous meal has been well digested so wait at least 3 hours.

  • Try to eat at fixed times but only if hungry.
  • Do not to eat between meals especially nuts, crackers chips and other dry foods. except fruits and juices. 
  • Don't have fruits with meals with the exemption of lemon or lime or small amounts of dried fruits.
  • Fruits and juices between meals is OK when a little hungry but not right before or right after a meal.

  • Add ginger or black pepper to meals, or sip ginger water after meals to aid digestion.

  • Avoid processed foods and foods cooked in a microwave. They are depleted of nutrition and produce toxins in the body.

  • Avoid excessive intake of caffeine as it can create toxins and inflammation; try to stick with herbal teas.

  • Use spices which promote health, such as cumin, coriander, fennel, saffron, black pepper, turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, mustard seeds, nutmeg, all fresh herbs, onions, ginger, and garlic.
