European Ayurveda Food Table

Nutrition plays a central role in European Ayurveda. It keeps the three bioenergies in balance and can therefore be an important factor for your health, but also a trigger for diseases.

At the European Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof we deal with the nutritional questions of our guests on a daily basis. To help you at home, our experts have prepared a comprehensive European Ayurveda food chart. You can download it quickly and easily at the end of the article.

The digestive fire Agni

In terms of Ayurvedic nutrition, however, there is another important player: the digestive fire Agni. This is directly responsible for food utilisation, energy production and cell renewal. When one of the doshas is imbalanced, digestive power is reduced. This in turn leads to a direct disturbance of the bioenergies. As a general rule you can therefore remember: Eat only when you are really hungry. Most people confuse hunger with appetite, eat out of boredom or frustration. Nowadays, so much is happening on the outside that we have often lost touch with our inner self and thus with our natural feeling of hunger. Therefore, it is enormously important to find our way back to intuitive eating.

With the right Ayurvedic diet you keep your bioenergies in balance.

Suitable foods for Vata

The Vata Dosha coordinates the movements in the body and supports your memory. If it is imbalanced, restlessness, dry skin, stress, mental carousel, digestive problems, hair loss, dissatisfaction, worries and frequent freezing can indicate this. In order to bring your bioenergy back into balance, we recommend that you eat spicy, bitter and tart foods. They should also be easily digestible, nutritious and warming. Therefore, raw vegetables are not recommended. Instead, opt for a steamed, grilled or cooked preparation. This is easier on your digestive organs and warms you from the inside. For breakfast, you should also opt for a warm meal. How about a delicious porridge with baked fruit? Discover more delicious breakfast recipes.

Nutrition tips for Pitta types

Pitta is the dosha of transformation and transformation and supports the digestive fire Agni. If it becomes imbalanced, you will probably be easily irritable, often thirsty, have heartburn and burning eyes. To counteract this, it is important to eat the right food. When it comes to dairy products, go for curd cheese, cream cheese, ghee and unsalted butter. Lupines, chickpeas, black and yellow lentils are also perfect sources of protein. Whole grain products and rice are optimal carbohydrates. By the way, you can season your food with basil, dill, peppermint, parsley, black pepper, caraway and aniseed.

This is how Kapha people eat optimally

Stability, calmness and regeneration are attributed to the Kapha dosha. It helps you to shut down and maintain inner balance. It can become problematic when Kapha gets out of hand. The digestive fire Agni does not burn as hot as usual. Digestive and metabolic problems can be the result. Accordingly, everything that gets Agni going again is good for Kapha. Cork turmeric, thyme, ginger or garlic are spices that help you to bring Kapha into balance. Fresh, dried and bitter fruits are not only very healthy, but also balance the bioenergy. Whole grains, cooked cereals, rice or corn are also beneficial for Kapha.
