Ayurvedic Food Preparation For Optimal Nourishment

While keeping up with today’s fast-paced world, we often struggle to make healthy dietary and nutritional choices. We look for quick food fixes that we can quickly ‘grab and go’ that help us save time on cooking so that we can utilize it towards other aspects of life. This has lead to a rise in prepackaged foods like pre-made breakfasts that are ready with boiled water or pre-made meals that are easily microwavable. 

If you are health conscious, then you would typically choose easy to make foods like protein shakes, fruit and vegetable smoothies, energy bars which promise us ‘maximum nutrition’ with ‘minimum time and effort’. And if trying to curb or shrink your growing waistline you would often consider ‘healthier options’ like fat free foods, and air fried recipes.
 But, Are fruit and veggie smoothies really ‘healthy’? Are energy bars the way to go for boosting energy? Are air-fried foods ‘healthier’ than fried foods? To answer the above questions and take the mystery out of ‘healthy cooking,’ Dr. Manjiri Nadkarni will talk about “Unlocking the Ayurvedic Secrets of Ahara Samkara or Ayurvedic Food Preparation for Optimal Nourishment!” She will discuss different food preparation practices employed traditionally in Ayurveda vs. in today’s modern world like soaking, sprouting, boiling, baking, grilling, pressure cooking, air frying, churning, blending, juicing, grinding etc. affect food from a qualitative and nutrient density perspective, and how they impact your health.
