The Ayurveda Diet

Be mindful about what you eat and your body will thank you. That's the guiding principle of the Ayurveda diet. As a holistic practice, Ayurveda strikes a healthy balance between mind, body, and spirit. It’s a philosophy that Chef Alec Hurley brings to the table to deeply nourish your body.

Why Ayurveda Is Good For You

A diet based on Ayurvedic nutrition and food can help:

  • Promote mindfulness
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Aid in weight loss
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Lower your cholesterol
  • Cleanse the body of toxins

Everyone Has A ‘Dosha’

What’s a dosha? According to the principles of Ayurveda, there are elements in the universe (air, water, space, fire, and earth) that form three doshas. A dosha refers to the body's energy and is believed to be tied to specific physiological functions. An Ayurveda diet focuses on wholesome foods that promote a person's health for their dominant dosha, as well as a balance among all three.
