About Diets on Joyful BellyAyurvedic diets use dosha, guna, and taste to describe the types of foods that are healthy and unhealthy for a person. Newcomers to ayurveda have a hard time keeping track of all these qualities. And sometimes even advanced practitioners would like some fresh new recipes to introduce variety in their diet. Joyful Belly diets make searching for recipes, ingredients and spices easy because we can match food to your diet using technology.
