Ayurvedic Eating Principles

  • Eat calmly, mindfully, and avoid distractions while eating
  • Have gratitude for your food
  • Eat only when you’re hungry
  • Consume fresh, whole foods (try to avoid heated up leftovers)
  • Make lunch the biggest meal of the day
  • Don’t eat right before going to sleep (allow at least three hours between dinner and bedtime)
  • Eat 3 meals a day
  • Don’t snack in between meals to give your digestive system some rest.
  • Eat until you’re satisfied, but not stuffed (don’t overeat)
  • Try to include all tastes in a meal (sour, salty, bitter, sharp, acidic & sweet, ideally in that order)
  • Avoid cold foods and beverages
  • Drink unsweetened herbal teas (e.g. Licorice, Cinnamon, Ginger, or Fennel) between meals
