If you were to receive no other information or guidelines regarding food intake, your instructions for eating the Ayurveda way would be very simple:

Eat natural food in small amounts.

This is the fundamental nature of eating in a way that helps the body to balance itself and ward off the onset of illness and disease. Today, however, it's far more common to eat large amounts of packaged, processed, manipulated food products that are only a shy derivative of their original form. This series of pages has been included on the site to help you build on this basic idea and to eat the Ayurveda way.
