The Kapha diet

Vata, Pitta and Kapha

We are all trying to learn the best foods to eat, all over again. Well, if we knew we would be much healthier.

Think on all the times we've had a choice about what to eat, what kind of foods do we chose? Why? Are they making us healthier or sicker? Think of all the times you talk about what you do not like and refuse to eat? Think about how little we know about healthy foods and much we know about drugs? Just the reverse, if we spent more time and effort on healthy foods to eat, then drugs would not be in such high demand.

So with that, I would like the share The Kapha diet: Vata, Pitta and Kapha!
