Discover How Eating Certain Tastes Balances Your Body’s Health?

The Action of the Six Tastes on the Ayurveda Body Types
Ayurvedic nutrition literally rests on the tip of your tongue. It is believed the sense of taste is a natural guide-map towards proper nutrition. For ages, humans relied upon taste to discover healthy food in nature and avoid toxicity. Our tastebuds do more than identify tastes; they unlock foods nutritional value and provide the initial spark to the digestive process. It has been said that certain taste groups tend to keep each body type in balance. This interactive cooking class explores the six taste groups and pairs them with recipes. This fun evening is a tasty treat as you not only learn about taste group benefits but will enjoy the end results of your cooking demonstration. Interactive-Cooking demonstration with ShirleyAnn.
