HOW DOES EATING AYURVEDICALLY MAKE YOU FEEL?Eating Ayurvedically makes you feel nourished and energized. Food digests with ease when right for your body type (dosha). Healthy digestion is seen as the cornerstone of well-being in Ayurveda. Healthy digestion generally prevents illness. If you do get sick, a strong digestive fire reduces the severity of illness and increases your resilience. It also improves your mood. Once you begin eating Ayurvedically, you will feel refreshed, vital and strong.

What if it is made with coconut oil, is it still drying?
Sprinkling oil, salt, and spices on popcorn can reduce dryness, improve digestibility, and improve taste! If you tend to get dry, it's also important to sip water while munching on popcorn.
