MODULE 3: Food and Ayurveda


Welcome to the third module of this course dedicated to Food, spices, herbs and drinks in Ayurveda.

As we have seen in the previous modules, our physical body, Annamaya Kosha, is made of food. It is obvious that the most direct way to treat the body is through food that balances the Doshic tendencies. And even though food is only a part of the treatment, you can get a high level of mastery of your mind and body with making smart food choices only. Also a pure, sattvic, and balanced menu does not only increase the health of your body, but also develops mental purity, clarity and emotional balance.

What Will I Learn?

  • The classes of this module will help you better understand how food influences your state of health and balance and mostly what are the concrete changes that you can bring to your meals to better match your dosha.
  • The PDF transcripts of the classes will provide you with the list of food items per category for each type of constitution: VATA, PITTA, KAPHA and the mixed types. Download yours, the one that corresponds to your type and start inspiring from it.
  • Get the spices that are good for you. Start eliminating from your menu the items that seem to be aggravating and start playing with the recipes.

After experiencing for several years now the changes in my body and health thanks to these cooking recommandations, I have been really happy to hear these recommandations for all types.

Thank you for offering a deeper understanding of the ways to treat our body with the right balanced food. All this is a way, or the way, to honor life.
