Virtual Introduction to Ayurvedic Cooking





Location: Instructor:
  • Lauren Mitchell-Dailey

Meeting Times

  • Thursday 6:15 PM - 8:15 PM


Ayurveda is a 5,000 yr. old practice considered to be one of the oldest forms of preventative medicine and healthcare. Digestion & nutrition are a foundation of this ancient system and it is believed that maintaining a proper dietary balance leads to longevity and disease prevention. Learn about this powerful practice to support the body and mind through each season. We will cook a seasonally inspired Kitchari; an Ayurvedic dish which is said to remove toxins from the body, along with ghee and a cup of digestive tea. This meal can be modified for vegans. All offerings are gluten free. Students can observe or cook along virtually. The teacher will send out a recipe packet and shopping list a week in advance.
