In this 3 hour course, we will explore how food impacts our well being. Using the Ayurvedic Principles of the 6 Tastes and the Ayurvedic Clock, we will learn how spices in a meal and the time it is consumed affects digestion and metabolism. We will sample each flavor and discuss how too much or too little of any of them modifies our experience of health in general. We will also discuss how time of day has influence. 

We will then eat and drink a simple lunch fit for the winter and speak about how the meal has been adjusted to support the qualities present in these months. The combination of this experience, along with discussion, will illuminate how we can review and change our food choices (from diet, to time of day, to spices, and food groups) during other months of the year and stages in our lives.

The workshop will be hands on. You will be provided a handout and recipe preparation. There will be plenty of time as well for questions.
