Reviving the Ancient Ethos
Our ancient Indian dietary philosophies have reassured us that, ‘what we eat is what we are’. The concept is based on the Ayurvedic principle of ‘Prakriti’ – the science of how the body reacts with food, internally and externally. It is the right combination of food tropology i.e. the art of right food combinations. Swasthya Cuisine invokes these time- honoured principles of responsible eating through an ideal combination of foods and fluids that have been selected to enhance both internal and external well-being.
