About the Book

In an era where a great variety of cuisines are just a restaurant away, cuisines are just a restaurant away, how do we choose what to eat?

Food products labelled ‘healthy’ one day are abruptly dismissed as ‘lethal’ the very next, while crash diets and celebrity regimens are trashed by nutritionists.

So what is the ideal balanced diet for your body? How do you know if you are eating your way to well-being or ill health? The answer, quite simply, lies within.

In the Yogic tradition food is alive, with a prana of its own. The quality of what you consume influences your body and mind. This book bring together a wealth of recipes-ranging from refreshing juices salads to complete meals of grains, cereals and curries to tasty desserts-that have been perfected in the kitchen of the Isha Yoga Centre. These positive-pranic dishes have been enjoyed by millions of visitors for over twenty years, and are proof that healthy eating can be tasty too.

Sadhguru’s insights into digestion, nourishment, classification of foods and much else are woven into the fabric of the book. Photographs and testimonials offer a glimpse into daily life at the Isha Yoga Centre, a space designed for inner transformation.

A Taste of Well-Being is as much a discovery of the potential that lies within us as it is of the joy we can derive from the simple act of eating.
