Cooking, the yogi way
Since yoga plays such a major roll in my life, I’m looking for ways to implement the yoga values and bring the yoga awareness into other fields; How to expand the yoga way of thinking outside the practice hours.
For me, yoga means balance. Balance between the right and the left sides of the body; The front and the back, the upper and lower parts, external and internal. It is a balance between flexibility and strength. A balance between body and mind and so on… In order to bring all of that to my cooking (which powerfully effects our body and wellbeing just like yoga does), I’m looking for that balance in food as well. Balance between cooked and raw foods. Balance between hot and cold. Different tastes, spices, consistencies and textures. Strong flavoured food that is uplifting and mild tasting food that soothes and relaxes the stomach.
Working with the natural cycle of the year and adjusting the cooking to the changing seasons. Just like in my yoga practice I look for verity, try new things, explore and expand. And again, as in yoga, it all must make sense. It must be practical and available for everybody to apply and incorporate in their own life. All good things come in simple forms (even if sometimes it doesn’t look like it from the first glance) and so are my recipes – simple to make and easy to digest.
