In Ayurveda food is medicine.
The Digestive Fire God Agni is revered and for good reason, we truly are what we eat. Or more like what we digest.
The secret my friends is that it is not only what we are eating that determines our happy digestion and our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. It is also how we eat, where we eat, with whom we eat, and from where our food comes.
This includes the love of the farmer for the land, the consciousness of the consumer to make good food choices, and the passion of the chef to create intentional, soul-satisfying, nourishing meals.
I happen to know one such mindful and passionate chef who also lucky for me is one of my best friends and soul-sisters on this fragrant journey of life. Myra Kornfeld is a chef, educator, author, and creative alchemist who has just completed and launched into the world her latest and most gorgeous book, co-authored with her husband Stephen Massimilla, a poet, scholar, professor, and painter.
