What Does ‘Ayurvedic’ Mean?
Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life. Based on the idea that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in a person's consciousness, Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.
Ayurveda can have positive effects when used as a complementary therapy in combination with standard, conventional medical care.
Unlike many other diets, the Ayurvedic diet provides personalized recommendations about which foods to eat and avoid based on your body type. It’s also popular because it’s not only said to promote better health for your body but also your mind.
The Ayurvedic diet encourages eating whole foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. The diet minimizes processed foods, which often lack fiber and important vitamins and minerals. Moreover, given that the Ayurvedic diet emphasizes nutrient-rich whole foods, it might boost weight loss.
What Are Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats are made by soaking rolled oats in liquid overnight. This method of preparing oats keeps the integrity of the oat intact, helping to avoid that gummy texture that cooked versions sometimes take on.
They’re simple to prepare (no cooking required!) and packed with nutrition. And since they’re made with uncooked oats, they’re a great source of resistant starch — a type of fiber that feeds our beneficial gut bacteria!
What Is Golden Milk?
Golden milk, or turmeric milk, originally comes from India. Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries and has anti-inflammatory properties and antimicrobial effects, thanks to the main active ingredient in turmeric, which is curcumin.
