10 Principles of Ayurveda Nutrition. Part 3.

8. Trust your intuition.
Though ayurvedic texts contain the detailed lists of products corresponding to any properties and tastes, remember, this knowledge is present in you initially. If you are in balance, if you live in harmony with nature, you will want just the kind of food, your body needs most of all at the moment. If you are attracted to food, because of which you feel physical or emotional discomfort, it means that the balance is disturbed. The easiest way to get it back is to begin using all six tastes again. And once you will notice that you like useful food no less, and thus the balance is restored. When there is a doubt in the choice, just remember what food you prefer when you are fine.

9. Have a meal in a good spirit.
Calm and steady meal guarantees its normal absorption and good spirit for the whole day. Consumed food absorbs the energy of our thoughts, that’s why think only about good at the table. If you can not stop the flow of negative thoughts and emotions, then do not eat for some time, because food will not go for the good now.

10. Do not hurry.
This is very simple but important rule of eating. To eat slowly even more important than to pay attention to what you eat. Favorable food, not chewed properly, is not useful. But if you have to eat not very nutritious food because of any external circumstances and you eat it slowly and your digestive system is in good condition, then your body will still benefit from the food. Thus, according to Ayurveda, the self-adjusting system of your organism works.
