Thank you again for helping to make cooking healthy so easy. I feel the Love and am thrilled with the entire cookbook. It’s a winning combination with easy and delicious recipes. For those not familiar with Ayurveda cooking it helps your body to eat foods which fit your dosha (fire, water or air). Eating foods that balance you help eat less and create a healthier life. Thank you 🙏
So wonderfully easy to understand and use! I started down the Ayurveda path 8 months ago, and have purchased a couple of cookbooks to help me along. However, the cookbooks I have a very complicated to use. Ayruveda Cooking for Beginners is a breath of fresh air! The recipes are very easy to understand, the food is delicious, and makes me want to cook instead of dreading it. I live a very busy lifestyle, and this book helps me stay healthy and save time. Thank you Laura Plumb for giving me something that can actually use!
Laura Plumb’s teaching & also her writing have a way of making you feel like she really cares a lot about helping you understand. She is a gifted teacher so it’s enjoyable to learn from her… and her writing is just as exquisite. I’ll be getting a paperback copy too.
