Summary

"When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need."
Ayurvedic Proverb

Ayurveda is an ancient health care system from India which has been practiced all over India for the last 5000 years. From India this knowledge has travelled to numerous countries like Nepal, China and even to Europe. In times gone by India was the greatest exporter of herbs and spices to many countries around the world. More than 3000 herbs, minerals and animal products are explained in Ayurveda, together with their physical description, pharmacological activities and role in both preventive and curative aspects for all diseases.
The role of herbs and spices in preventive aspects of disease is emphasized in Ayurveda, we all know that prevention is better than cure. As herbs and spices play such a pivotal role in preventing both communicable and non-communicable diseases, their use was fused in Indian cuisine in such a way to ensure that everyone consumes an ample dose of them
daily. Another advantage of using herbs and spices is that it adds to the nutritional value, flavour and aroma of foods and enhances the bioavailability of nutrients and minerals from the food. They also help to prevent and contain unwanted microbial growth.

    Get ready for sleep with over fifty recipes for calming, stress-relieving bedtime drinks.  Moon Milk is a cookbook of fifty-five recipes for calming beverages to drink before bedtime. Relaxing nighttime drinks have often been thought of as a miracle worker for helping you to snooze soundly and deeply. Many of the recipes in this book have adaptogens in the ingredients, such as ginseng, turmeric, or cardamom, to help reduce stress, relieve fatigue, and bring a sense of peace.   While most of these tasty beverages are warm drinks made with nondairy or dairy milks, there are also recipes for cool elixirs, and options to be made using teas and flavored waters. There is a chapter dedicated to drinks using alcohol, but you can add spirits to any of the drinks if you so choose.   The book is divided into five chapters, with the first, Milky Way, focusing on the concept of moon milks, creating nut milks from scratch, adaptogens, garnishes, and infusions. The other four chapters are Starlit Soothers (milks to invite peace and tranquility), Night Owls (milks for late nights), Calming Classics (milks for coziness), and Noddy Toddies (milks with extra spirits).

    Child-friendly recipes that fit into your busy lifestyle and offer healthy—and tasty—alternatives to today’s fast food meals and sugary snacks.   This redesigned and expanded third edition of Diabetes Snacks, Treats, and Easy Eats for Kids offers even more simple, delicious recipes for healthy, well-balanced diets.   Since the book was first published in 2006, the prevalence of diabetes in children has continued to increase. Children under age nineteen have seen a twenty-one percent increase in Type 1 cases, and children ages ten to nineteen have seen a thirty percent increase in cases of Type 2—a disease that used to be considered an adult condition.   But kids will be kids, and when they come home from school, they want a snack that’s simple, satisfying, and occasionally sweet. When it comes to dinner, they usually don’t have the time or the taste for fancy meals. With this in mind, author Barbara Grunes has developed more than 150 recipes for snacks and meals that kids really like and that stay within diabetic guidelines.   Grunes’s goal is to help all kids enjoy food that is good for them—even if they have diabetes. Each recipe includes the nutritional information readers need, whether they count carbs or use the exchange method. With recipes like Pizza Puffs, Spud Pancakes, Chicken Fajitas, Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, and Fruit Turnovers, this book proves that everyone can enjoy familiar and delicious food together. After all, it’s not about “good,” “bad,” or “forbidden” foods—it’s about readers feeding their families sensibly.
