According to Ayurveda, the ancient Indian wellness practice for a good life, whole and fresh sattvic foods offer both energy and balance through subtle flavors. Yogendra breaks down sattvic cooking for millennials, describing the fine art of calibrating the six rasas or flavors to suit individual body types, as well as different seasons. Fruits, vegetables, sprouted grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, honey, and jaggery all fall into the sattvic foods category, but sattvic eating is really all about moderation. Mitahara (Sanskrit for sweet or pleasant foods) and foods that are sautéed or fried in healthy oils are not taboo, if you know how to use them correctly. If you’re looking for a handful of easy sattvic recipes to try out, along with nutritional information, this is the book to pick up.
