Lauki Kheer

You are what you eat and a large part of your temperament and nature depends on the food you consume. Based on this, Ayurveda divides food into satvic, tamasic and rajasic food – basically the good, the bad and the ugly in the ayurvedic food world.
Satvic foods are healing foods that cause clarity of mind and the body. These are basically lacto vegetarian foods with emphasis on their freshness and being naturally sourced. A satvic diet balances out all the elements in our body, keeping you calm, positive and healthy.
