Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse Cooking Class

  • Haven's Kitchen 109 West 17th Street (map)

In this two-part series that is a cooking class and informational lessons, Noël Graupner will teach students on the fundamentals of an Ayurvedic diet, so that they can lead a happier and more mindful relationship with food. The second class of the series will be an Ayurvedic-based detox in time for the changing seasons. As an alternative to ascetic juice cleanses, I will walk students through recipes that are satisfying to the palate and our bodies.

Ayurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear channels and rid the body of accumulated toxins. Spring is an especially important time of the year when nature re-awakes and provides us with all the food tools we need to rid the body of excess fats and heavy proteins. Familiarize yourself with these cleansing foods and how to incorporate them into a day's worth of delicious Ayurvedic dishes and beverages.
