What you'll learn in this vegan cooking class:

According to Ayurveda, even the freshest, healthiest, most nutritious ingredients, if improperly combined, can cause digestive problems, toxicity, even allergies. Milk and bananas, for example, are said to be incompatible at the same sitting. This evening we will explore Ayurveda’s approach to food combining, one that takes into account each food’s taste, energy, and post-digestive effect, and also learn how to use spices to strengthen digestion. Divya will share these guidelines in a way that’s easy to understand and to put into practice, so that we can transition to a diet with proper food combinations, which can dramatically improve our digestion, health, overall wellbeing, and our entire experience with food.

Note: A materials fee of $10 for foods payable to instructor (foods include: Ayurvedic chai w/ almond milk, sweet potatoes w/ pecans and raisins, curried broccoli w/ fresh cheese, rice and quinoa pilaf, steamed kale salad, cilantro chutney, etc.).

Food Combining
Reviewed by SARA S. on 11/26/2014
Class started with an amazing meal, and the teacher was a leader in her field. I appreciated the handout she prepared, which noted the entire lecture. The course info was logically presented, and full of examples the whole way thru, to reiterate the points she was teaching us. High level of respect for this teacher.
