"Ayurvedic Cooking for Gut Health ~ why cooking in a clay is a step closer to happier gut"'

Thanks to our guest, Salila, a fourth-generation Ayurvedic healer, for sharing profound knowledge and insightful intuitive wisdom!  Salila emphasizes the power of Ayurvedic healing through simple ingredients like Kitchari to nourish and heal weak guts. It's about transforming from chronic tiredness to vitality, from "I'll sleep when I'm dead" to valuing rest, from feeling unwell to embodying strength as a force of good, and from food uncertainties to embracing Gut instinct trust.


Cooking in clay pots makes  grains, legumes, and veggies easier to digest. The slow, steady heat allows for better hydration and cooking, reducing anti-nutrients like lectins and making food more gut-friendly.

Clay pots have excellent heat retention properties, which means they can cook food evenly at lower temperatures. This slow and even cooking helps preserve  nutritional value of meals including fiber and probiotics that are beneficial for the gut.

Clay pots are made from natural materials and do not contain harmful chemicals or glazes that can leach into our food. This means that food cooked in clay pots is less likely to be contaminated with toxins that might negatively impact gut health."
