Annam Brahma

January 28, 2011

…In Sanskrit translates as, Food is Divine.

Divine, in case you forgot, translates as, Godlike.

What a concept: the preparation and the consumption of food can be or best yet should be godly. Well isn’t that Kosher?

It is said, “you are what you eat.”

It is written – You are created in the image and in the likeness of God.

So it makes sense, at least to me, that there should be a vibrational-match between what you eat, how you eat it and who you are.

Indian cooking, which I have been super smitten with, for the last several months and can’t seem to get enough of, follows the ancient system of Ayurvedic medicine. Is my body trying to tell me something? Uh…DUH…yeah, always!!!

Ayurvedic medicine is a traditionally holistic approach to medicine native to India that pays careful attention to the selection and blending of spices and herbs to help our bodies become finely tuned, both physically as well as spiritually.

Indian food is the cuisine of the Buddha – pay attention to your cravings.

If you find yourself heavy handed with the black pepper, it’s worth knowing black pepper is said to give energy.

Got a hankering for curry? Well, turmeric or curry is said to have antiseptic qualities, both internal and external. I wouldn’t go rubbin’ Lamb Rogan Josh on a rash, but you get the idea.

Usually by todays date our New Year’s gusto for eating better (we always say we’re gonna eat better – you said it too) “appears” to have gone by the way of Sandusky. Or did it? Maybe your body’s infinite wisdom knew by now you really did need those two Almond Joys you scarfed down in a flash. After all, almonds are said to be heart healthy and so is Joy.
