The book has 108 recipes for every season, tips to adjust recipes to each dosha, a 5-step guide to Ayurvedic eating, 4 seasonal 7-day meal plans, an overview of Ayurveda principles, and graphs and quizzes to help you learn more about yourself, Ayurvedically speaking.
All the recipes are original, almost all with 5 ingredients or less, plus 4 hand-crafted, seasonal spice blends to make cooking easy. With photographs from the amazingly talented Hélène Dujardin, the book is inviting, clear and beautiful!
