Thanks for a great session! I really enjoyed the afternoon, the desserts are delicious and it was a joy to meet you!
Now I'm salivating!!! Oh, nooo ... how will I be able to sleep ;)

INDIKAAP believes food holds energy that nurtures, heals and transforms. We create delicious Ayurvedic and vegan food and bottled products. We offer Ayurvedic cooking classes and workshops.

Food is an allegory. It is the concrete manifestation of lifetimes of experience, knowledge cultural heritage and adaptation. It is our story retold through our senses of smell, taste, touch and sight. It feeds our bodies and our spirits. At INDIKAAP we cook with this awareness of the greater importance food plays in our lives. We use food to engage, excite, integrate and transform, each delicious mouthful at a time.

This weekend I had the privilege of hosting a wonderful group of people who experienced my Introduction to Ayurvedic Nutrition & Cooking Class

During this intimate experience everyone learned:

🌱 What Ayurveda is and is not
🌱 How to use this ancient science and wisdom to improve and maintain their health
🌱 A deeper understanding of who they are by understanding their dosha
🌱 How to create a personal menu and learn how to use what they eat to restore balance in their bodies

They got to share in a tridoshic meal that we cooked together and were able to take home recipes cards and dosha teas 👩🏽‍🍳👨🏿‍🍳

A very big thank you to all of the beautiful people who attended.

I would love to see you at the next one 🤗

How do the Doshas fit into your life? 🌱

Our Doshas are like a framework we can use to look at our lives to recognise and rectify imbalance ⚖️

When a Dosha is balanced we experience the best of that combination of the elements associated with it, and when it is out of balance we begin to experience extremes in nature.

Are you feeling an imbalance in your life?

Have you tried our Ayurvedic bowls yet? 🌱

At INDIKAAP, we use Ayurveda in a bowl to address an imbalance experienced by an access of one of the doshas:

☺️ The Mood Bowl: looks at providing your body what it needs to support hormonal balance and thereby balances our mood.

🔥 The Grounding Bowl: contains ingredients that are Ayurvedically ‘sweet and heavy’ in nature. This means it is rich in protein & healthy fats making it highly nutritive and filling. The spices in the bowl, are warming in nature and stimulate Agni, our digestive fire.

🤸🏻‍♂️ The Energy Bowl: contains light food that can be easily digested by the body, providing it with a burst of energy and increases circulation. Vegetables are lightly steamed in the bowl as close to serving as possible, ensuring that it remains nutrient dense, yet not raw.

Which bowl is your body in need of?

It is very difficult to balance all 7 doshas with just one bowl. Vata & Pitta have qualities that are opposite in nature, hence what balances one, aggravates the other. A bowl would need to be completely sattvic in nature to do this, which limits your choice of ingredients and flavours.

Pop in to our pod at Makers Landing to give them a try. We are open every Wed, Thurs & Sunday from 9am - 5pm and Fri & Sat from 9am - 9pm

This Valentine’s Day, instead of skirting the mundane and superficial, what if you gave each other the gifts of a healthy libido, vitality, virility, and fertility 🌙

The food we eat is digested by our body and nourishes the 5 bodily tissues in stages of refinement 🍴

The most refined or vital essence of complete digestion is called Ojas. It is the receptacle of life force and is experienced as good health and vibrancy. A healthy libido is one of the indicators of Ojas 🔥

We build Ojas by making healthy food and lifestyle choices. It is depleted by excessive sex, illness, and stress. Knowing this subtle balance between too much and too little is your gift to each other
and what makes love a doing word 🤍

Here are a few foods you can eat to increase Ojas:

🔥 Soaked and peeled almonds
🔥 Shatavari
🔥 Ashwagandha
🔥 Dates
🔥 Avocados

Why not celebrate your love by attending an Ayurvedic cooking class or buying Ayurvedic food products to enjoy together?

Pop over to our website to book our upcoming workshop or order some of our delicious products.

I am not a religious person, but one of the celebrations on the Hindu calendar that I always celebrate is Basant Panchami.

Hindus all over the world and Ayurvedic practitioners alike, celebrate this day as it honours Sri Saraswati the source of Ayurveda. In India, it also heralds the coming of Spring 🌱

✨ Traditions on the day:

Hindus celebrate by visiting the temple, offering prasad, and placing their children’s books and learning materials at home alters to receive the blessing of the goddess 🙏🏽

Yellow is the most loved colour of the goddess. Homes are adorned with yellow cloth and flowers, people wear yellow clothes and eat sweetmeats that are coloured yellow 💛

✨ What can you do to celebrate?

🟡 Recognise the indelible affect education and the arts have had on your life.
🟡 Show gratitude to your teachers, in all the forms they take.
🟡 Pay tribute to inspired artists of all art forms.

May you all be bestowed with knowledge and wisdom. Have a blessed Basant Panchami 🕉️

What causes one of us to have a meal and feel tired and bloated, while another, eating the same food feels calmed and happy?

How is it that one person can have a cup of coffee anytime while another must stop any caffeine by 5pm to get a good night’s sleep?

More interesting and complex is why of all the people living in the same house, eating the same food, following a similar routine, one gets chronic diabetes.

Ayurveda sees illness and wellness as a result of:

🌱 Our attitudes towards food and lifestyle and our resultant choices
🌱 Our stage in life
🌱 Our genealogy
🌱 Our environment.

Join us for a workshop and cooking class introducing the fundamental concepts of the health science Ayurveda. We will explore how these concepts are used in nutrition and cooking to heal, restore and maintain good health. You will learn to cook a simple meal for your dosha that you can quickly whip up any day of the week.

I just wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who has joined the Seasonal Ayurvedic Cleanse Course this week.

Throughout the last 7 days we have learnt to restore balance in our bodies:

⭐ By moving lymph to irradicate toxins from your body easily
⭐ A simple way to keep our digestive tracks clean
⭐ We have experienced the benefits of eating with natural rhythms and how this positively affects our metabolism and reduces cravings
⭐ We have learnt how to unlock the healing benefits of the powerful herbs Ashwaghanda and Triphala
⭐ We have experienced the physiological effects of meditation and how this is used as a tool to balance the body

Thank you again for letting me be a part of your Ayurvedic journey 🌱
