Nice and simple and tasty recipies. I wish I have a blender to make those juices.
The True Joy of Eating
Food is life giving away its own life to make your life. If only you were aware that so many lives are giving up their own lives to sustain your own, you would eat with enormous gratitude.
If you eat with that kind of gratitude, you will naturally eat only to the extent that it is necessary. The food will behave in a completely different way in your system; the way you treat it is the way it treats you.
The one who eats with joy will need much less food and will get better nourishment than the other person.
in some way something that is not him is willing to become a part of him. This is what you call love.
This beautiful process of constant demonstration of the oneness of existence is happening at your mealtime every day.
Food, eating, is a demonstration of the oneness of existence.
Something that was a plant, something that was a seed, something that was an animal, a fish or a bird, just merging and becoming a human being, is clear demonstration of the oneness of existence.
A Taste of Isha
What is now referred to as the ‘slow food movement’ was just the way of the world.
what is the correct, balanced diet for our bodies in the long run? How is one supposed to differentiate between good foods and bad foods?
‘When it comes to food, don’t ask anyone. You must learn to ask the body and listen to it. You should eat what your body is most happy with.’
Food is alive, with a quality and prana (life energy) of its own. When consumed, the quality of the food influences the qualities of our body and mind.
'You are what you eat'
If we pay sufficient attention, we will effortlessly know from within what we need to eat and how much.
We will not need to seek external sources of information.
what is merely a daily intake of food can be transformed into a beautiful process of nourishment and union.
You are transforming mud into human nature, and if you are willing, you can transform this mud into Divine nature within yourself.
the food itself is God. All other gods you have known only in your mind. In real experience, the air that you breathe, the earth that you walk upon, and the food that you eat are the gods who are sustaining you every moment.
Juices and Teas
Ayurveda advises against drinking ice-cold drinks as they hinder digestion.
Lemon Mint Juice
- 2 lemons
- 14–16 mint leaves, fresh
- Honey / palm sugar / sugar to taste
- Blend the lemon juice and the mint leaves together in a blender.
- Add the honey (or other sweetener) along with 4 cups of water.
- Blend it well together. Strain the juice.
- Pour the juice into glasses and serve chilled.
Rolling the lemons on a hard surface before cutting will ensure maximum juice yield.
Blending the mint leaves whole allows for more fl avour to be released into the juice.
