A healthy diet according to Ayurveda

 Best time for Breakfast

According to the basic principles of Ayurveda, all the biological rhythms of the person most closely associated with the Sun.According to the principles of nutrition according to Ayurveda, the first, a very light Breakfast, to be held from 4 to 6 am. What do you mean "easy"? From the viewpoint of Ayurveda is a glass of water with a few drops of lemon juice and honey. This "food" washes his stomach, washing away with it the traces of yesterday. From 4 to 6 in the morning the human body naturally excretes out toxins. And it is very important at this time to empty the bladder, intestines, brush your teeth and tongue, to take a shower.

Second Breakfast – from 6 am to 10 am.

But again, not heavy. After all this time in the body after activity at dawn, followed by decline. So give yourselves a oatmeal with dried fruit or any other Breakfast cereals, this body is enough. A small caveat: the coarser will be your chosen cereal, the better. Avoid porridges of instant cooking: after treatment there was nothing valuable left.

Main meal

From 10 am to 14 PM: the best time for making a basic food. Ayurveda allows you to dine at your leisure. However, from the point of view of the principles of nutrition according to Ayurveda, this pleasure has its limits: for example, Ayurveda is very complex protesting against the dishes. The more time you spend on cooking food, the longer it is digested.


From 14 to 18 hours, according to the principles of nutrition according to Ayurveda, it is believed to eat. Of course, dinner should be very easy. Best choice — a Cup of hot milk with a little ginger, cardamom and turmeric. It nourishes shukra dhatu — the productive life substance and produces Ojas – life force. At 22 it's time to go to sleep. Every hour of sleep before midnight their productivity is equal to two. So six hours of sleep is enough to rest the body.

Perezhevyvaya food

Power Ayurveda implies a very thorough chewing of food. To chew (or rather, thoroughly mixing the food with saliva) all you need: even a mild oatmeal! Do not eat cold food, the body is forced to heat it first, foolishly squandering the energy, and only then, already "run down" batteries, taken for digestion. Food in Ayurveda is the food freshly prepared meal.

Food according to Ayurveda is very pays great attention to compatibility of products: never mix proteins with carbohydrates etc Remember about the strange selfish: milk and melon that should be eaten only in splendid isolation, not mixing completely with nothing (except spices)
