Ayurveda 101 : How To Eat
a four-class series
There is really no such thing as ‘Ayurvedic Food’. For any food, taken as a single ingredient or a meal, to be considered truly ‘Ayurvedic’, the constitution and current state of the individual eating must be known, as well as the properties of the dish, so that the food is in alignment with the needs of the individual. In this way, ‘Ayurvedic food’ is unique to each person, at each meal every day, and comprises foods that will help create a balanced, relaxed, and clear state of body and mind. In this way, the Ayurvedic sciences consider content and context of food to be of equal measure.
Join Ayurvedic Nutritionist Noël Graupner this January for a series on the Ayurvedic approach to understanding digestion, taste, seasonal and daily eating, and food rituals, to build a comprehensive premise to not just what you eat, but how, when, and most importantly, why.

January 31 | Class Three: Eating Schedule / 7-9PM
Eating seasonally is a requisite component of food sadhana practice. The Ayurvedic sciences teach that Mother Nature is ‘serving’ exactly what our bodies need to antidote the physical challenges of the environment, mandating seasonal eating practices to promote health of the body, mind, and spirit. Likewise, time of day informs the energetic demands on the human organism. In this class, we will discuss the concepts of Ritucharya (seasonal schedule) and Dinacharya (daily conduct) to examine how both environment and time inform what type of foods and in what quantities to eat when, further reinforcing the Six Tastes Theory.
