What is Ayurveda Cooking?
Ayurvedic Cooking tells everything about ‘What to eat?’, ‘How to eat?’ and ‘How to Cook?’ Ayurveda explains the nourishment techniques, correct food combination, food alternatives, time for eating, oil usage and way of cooking in detail. Also as of Ayurveda, food is distributed in three sections – normal (organic), royal and gloomy.
The first one (organic or normal) section contains a list of food items that are light, pure and full of life energy. This type of food combination helps body remain cool and besides maintains a sense of balance between the mind and brain. On the contrary end, consuming royal or gloomy food on a larger scale can create a nature of imbalance in the body which is much harmful for health.
Part of Sunlight and air with food:
The Ayurvedic cooking science explains that the cooked food should have a touch of sunlight and air. As well the food cooked in a temperature above 118 degree centigrade may well lose its nutritive ability; all its nutrients can die at this temperature. For instance, a pressure cooker’s internal initial temperature is nearly about 120 degree. Again, for baking food items, the temperature is constantly between 140 – 180 degree centigrade.
