The wisdom of Ayurvedic nutrition rests in your taste buds. Taste, or rasa in Sanskrit, is the keys to understanding Ayurvedic nutrition. According to Ayurveda, the sense of taste is a natural guide towards proper nutrition. For ages, humans relied largely upon taste to discover healthy foods and avoid toxic ones.
Our taste buds do much more than simply identify tastes; they unlock the nutritive value of foods and provide the initial spark to the entire digestive process.
