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.
organic chicken is an excellent source of protein, a necessary nutrient that plays a vital role in the healthy production of bones, blood, cartilage, skin and muscles.

8 bone in/skin on organic chicken thighs
4 small parsnips (peeled and rough chopped)
5 sprigs of thyme
1 lemon (thinly sliced into rounds)
12oz bag organic petite carrots (roughly chopped)
