Written by John Immel,
Tuesday, April 20th @ 4pm ET / 1pm PTPeanuts are known as "Kalaya" in Ayurveda. Health benefits of Peanuts were explained in ayurvedic texts somewhere around the 14th century. Peanut is thought to be a nut; however, it belongs to the family of legumes in relation to soy, lentils, and beans. Ayurveda Acharyas have grouped them under beans.
A wide variety of products are made from peanut, and they include peanut flour, peanut oil, peanut butter and peanut protein to be used as ingredients in foods such as cakes, snacks, desserts, sauces, and confectionery.
Ayurveda can explain the medicinal benefits of peanuts, as well as the drawbacks, such as why peanut allergies are so common.
John Immel, founder of Joyful Belly, will explore the use of Peanuts in cooking and medicine. On the call, he will present the results of a food study from the Joyful Belly Food Lab. In the study, 34 students from the Mastering Ayurvedic Digestion and Nutrition course experimented with peanuts for 3 days. Come with your questions about Ayurveda! John will be available after the presentation for a live Q&A.
