Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest medicine to have existed. Ayurveda recognises 6 tastes: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent.
Meals that incorporate all 6 flavours not only stimulate the digestion properly but support us nutritionally. It can also help reduce cravings or the over-indulgence of certain foods.
The following recipe has 4 ingredients that stimulate all of the 6 ayurvedic tastes. You can make up a small jam jar of the recipe and take a spoonful before a meal, or you could add some to your meals.
Grated ginger (1/4 inch) Lemon juice ( to taste) Himalayan or sea salt (not table salt) Brown sugar/ dark molasses or honey
This should last 4 - 5 days in the fridge.
