”We aren’t necessarily what we eat but what we digest and absorb”.⠀
Ayurveda generally does not encourage too many raw or cold foods. Raw foods are harder to digest for the body in comparison to cooked food. Sure, we might lose some vitamins, minerals and enzymes whilst cooking, but if we can't digest what we are eating, it won't nourish us. ⠀
Can't do without your smoothie or salad? Have it between 11 am-2 pm when your digestion is the strongest. Avoid having it more than twice a week, early morning or in the evening when your digestion is the weakest.
