Better Health through Digestion with an Ayurvedic Diet
Write a review!
Ayurveda harnesses the power of food to heal. Food can make us light or heavy, dry or oily, hot or cold, etc. We call these properties of food digestive effects. Western medicine uses the nutritional effects of food butt ayurveda believes good digestion is the first step to good nutrition. Every recipe, ingredient, and spice on Joyful Belly is keyed by digestive effect.

Cold means that pumpkins have a cooling effect on the body for several hours after digestion. Sweet means that pumpkin has sweet taste.
