The 6 Tastes

As long as we keep balance in tastes we will be well.

Food becomes medicine by balancing the 6 tastes in cooking using kitchen herbs.  

As long as food is prepared and consumed in the right ways and quantities, eaten at the right time and in the right season for your Prakruti (unchanging constitution) and current imbalances (Vikriti), food will be medicine. 

We have 21 meals each week - making as many of these medicine is the goal, and if not medicine, at least neutral, rather than poison.
