The Chopra Center Cookbook includes 30 days of delicious and balanced meal plans and more than 200 easy-to-make, sumptuous recipes for entr´e es, soups, stews, quick meals, breakfast dishes, snacks, and desserts that take the guesswork out of choosing food that is good for the body. The Chopra Center Cookbook is rooted in both cutting-edge nutritional science and the world’s most ancient health system, Ayurveda, of which yoga is a close relative. Ayurveda recommends that we all partake of the six tastes of life–sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent–and the recipes in this book are balanced to appeal to all six tastes for optimal digestion and enjoyment. The recipes–quite low-fat and yet rich with marvelous spices and herbs to add amazing flavor–favor fresh vegetables and fruits and a wide variety of grains and beans; some also include the option of adding fresh fish and chicken, should you so desire.
Remarkably insightful and incredibly appetizing, The Chopra Center Cookbook teaches us how to eat in healthy ways so the need for nutrition and the need for enjoyment are both satisfied.
