The practices of Ayurveda bring balance, which is why the concept of augmenting and extractive foods is a powerful way to guide the way we prepare our meals.
Augmenting foods are those that nourish and ground your body and mind. They build tissue and replenish what is lost. These foods are generally sweeter in taste – things like rice, carrots, pumpkin and avocado. Eating augmenting foods gives us vitality and energy.
