Hang on: Before you dismiss Ayurveda as this week’s trendy diet, the ancient food philosophy has actually been around for generations. A holistic medicine practice from India, Ayurveda focuses on balance. It’s about getting your body’s energies aligned. When it comes to the dining table, that means fresh, seasonal and local ingredients combined to promote efficient digestion and harbor anti-inflammatory properties. Sounds complicated—you can certainly get nerdy about your doshas—but it’s actually pretty easy to achieve success from the start. Just stock your pantry full of ghee (clarified butter), flavorful spices and organic products, then take a stab at a few of these recipes.
