Wellness cuisine at Shanti Maurice is based on the 5000 year old medical science of Ayurveda, which talks about the importance of the right food depending on one’s body-type. The goal of Ayurveda is to work with natural biorhythms and specific needs of the body and to bring in nourishing as well as immunity enhancing foods.
Ayurvedic principles divide food into six fundamental categories according to taste: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent. Each ‘taste’ contains nutritional value that the body requires for balanced functioning. A balanced diet therefore should include all six tastes and each meal should include macronutrients like proteins, fats and carbohydrates.
Imbalance in the different ‘tastes’ or nutrients in a diet can lead to imbalance in the body. Each type of food has its unique effect on digestion, metabolism and the formation of tissues, therefore diets in which only certain food groups, nutrients or ‘tastes’ are prominent, can lead to significant imbalance in the physiology.
Every individual has a different lifestyle, body type, genetic background and metabolism. Ayurveda assesses an individual’s body and personality type, and specifies a specific plan for a specific body type and then personalizes it.
The food at Shanti Maurice is based on these principles and can be adapted easily to suit all cuisines. It promises to be an eclectic yet healthy and wholesome combination. A combination that will eventually lead to good health; the natural way
