The Ayurveda Meal Plan
“Without proper nutrition, medicine is of little use…with proper nutrition, medicine is of little need.”
-Charaka Samhita, an ancient classical text on Ayurveda
Real food isn’t made from ingredients, real food is ingredients
OUR MEAL PLANS
Keeping digestion on track is key to health and the Holistic Highway endorses a balanced diet that nurtures not only the body but also the mind, senses and spirit. We strongly believe that food is medicine and this is reflected in our easy and delicious recipes that promote health, well-being and balance. Each meal plan features 5 delicious, healthy meals a week that taste great, are right for you, and leave you energized, healthy and wanting more.
The Holistic Highway also presents a diverse and inspiring collection of seasonal recipes that will lure you into the kitchen and bridge this ancient philosophy and wisdom of healthy cooking to the twenty-first century. While the recipes are created according to traditional Ayurveda principles, they feature easy-to-find ingredients and modern day cooking methods appropriate for busy lifestyles. With seasonal recipes for breakfast, soups, salads, main dishes, treats, and beverages, these seasonal ebooks contain useful tips on customizing recipes to meet individual needs and incorporate flavors adapted for the western palate.
Our meal plans and seasonal ebooks champion the ancient eastern philosophy of eating to nourish, sustain and repair. Based on a love of real food and simple home cooking, the recipes are designed for anyone with a passion for eating well, feeling great and … having dessert at lunchtime!

HOW IT WORKS
What can you expect
1. SHOPPING RESOURCES MADE EASY
Each weeks plans come with a corresponding shopping list so that you know exactly what, and how much, to buy each week. Simply buy the ingredients on the shopping list and you will have everything you need for 5 dinners that week! Every ingredient on your list will be used that week which means no waste (and no more wasted money) and an empty refrigerator at the end of the week.
2. CURATED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU
Each meal not only includes the recipe for that meal, but also a detailed breakdown of why each meal was chosen for you. We break down the benefits of each meal from both an eastern and western perspective so that you know exactly what is in your meal and why it's the ideal meal.
3. ADJUSTABLE FOR EVERY DOSHA
One of the challenges of eating the food that is right for you is that, as social creatures, we rarely eat alone, and therefore need to create meals that the whole family can enjoy. That’s why each recipe comes with instructions on how to make easy tweaks to the recipe so that the meal is right for each dosha at your dinner table. A little dash of this herb for a Pitta, a splash of oil for a Vata… you get the idea. One recipe with basic dinner plate tweaks allows you to prepare custom meals for the whole family with just one recipe!
4. DINNERS FOR 1, 2, 3, 4 AND MORE!
Each recipe is designed as a meal for 2. Eating alone? Simply cut the measurements in half. Feeding a family of four? Double up. Simple, easy, and adjustable.
5. ALL RECIPES ARE SEASONAL
The meals change with the seasons because eating the foods that are in season are tastier, cheaper, and better for you. That’s why we ask where you live so we can provide the meals that are in-season given your location.
6. 30 MINUTES OR LESS
We understand that eating right isn’t easy and that we all live very busy lives. That’s why each meal has been carefully crafted to take about 30 minutes or less to cook. Some may be a little longer, but they are worth it. we promise.
