The Yoga Kitchen Plan is a soulful journey towards finding your best, most authentic self where a quiet mind and overall sense of calm are the ultimate goal. Through the use of pure, non-stimulating foods, the plan helps the reader reach a state of bliss and tranquility each day.
The book starts by explaining the body’s chakra system and how this is integral to a yogic lifestyle. The core of the book is the simple, 7-day plan which incorporates breathing exercises, meditations, basic yoga practice, daily tasks, and then a selection of recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner that target each of your 7 chakras to take you through a whole week.
The 65 recipes follow a sattvic food model – this means that the food is lacto-vegetarian i.e. fruit, vegetables and dairy predominate while stimulating foods that unsettle the mind are excluded, such as eggs, garlic, onion and caffeine. Examples include Raspberry & Apple Bircher with Pistachio Confetti; Blueberry & Basil Kombucha with Poached Pear & Rhubarb; Fennel, Beetroot & Orange Salad with Whipped Feta; and Grilled Lettuce, Corn & Black Bean Chop Salad.
