Ayurvedic Six Tastes Bowl (dairy free + gluten free + paleo + vegan)

Updated: Mar 1, 2022

With all of these clean, healing ingredients combined, you can call this one "medicine in a bowl".

Ayurvedic 'Six Tastes': In Ayurveda, there are six tastes that can be found in our diet: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Pungent (spicy), Bitter, Astringent. Our taste buds do much more than simply identify tastes. They also unlock the nutritional value of foods and kick-start the digestion process.

kale has so many health benefits and is packed with vitamins and minerals that help strengthen the immune system and have anti-inflammatory benefits.

butternut squash is an excellent source of vitamin A, which helps to support ocular health and vision.

lentils are heart-healthy and can reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, support the digestive health, and help to manage blood sugar levels.

natural sea salt is full of necessary nutrients and trace minerals that play an essential role in many of our body's vital functions, including nerve function and mental health.

olive oil is mainly comprised of monounsaturated fat called oleic acid that has been linked with reducing inflammation and having a beneficial effect on genes linked to cancer.
