How Can This Ayurvedic Food Make You Feel Great?
Sugar increases water retention and weight, provoking Kapha. Sugar is building and causes blood stagnation. Because of stagnant lymph causing inflammation at the cellular level, sugar addictions eventually aggravate Pitta (Kapha blocking Pitta). The mind, exposed to increased sugar, but less oxygen due to sluggish circulation, gets agitated.
Food cravings come from one or more organs starved of energy. In Kapha, this starvation of prana is due to poor circulation not deficiency. To destroy food cravings, increase prana by 1) taking deep breaths, 2) taking a walk, 3) drinking a few sips of warm water, 4) Eating something bitter, 5) Eating ginger or something pungent.

I am trying to add to my personal diet list by swapping sugar for date sugar in a recipe. But there is no list available for me to choose a substitution from. Can you advise please
When subbing date sugar for raw sugar you can use the same amount.

John also directs Joyful Belly's School of Ayurveda , which specializes in digestive tract pathology & Ayurvedic nutrition. John and his wife Natalie recently published Explore Your Hunger: A Guide to Hunger, Appetite & Food.
John's interest in Ayurveda and digestive tract pathology was inspired by a complex digestive disorder acquired from years of international travel, including his public service work in South Asia. John's commitment to the detailed study of digestive disorders reflects his zeal to get down to the roots of the problem. His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion. John's creativity in the kitchen and delight in cooking for others comes from his family oriented upbringing. In addition to his certification in Ayurveda, John holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Harvard University.
John enjoys sharing Ayurveda within the context of his Catholic roots, and finds Ayurveda gives him an opportunity to participate in the healing mission of the Church. Jesus expressed God's love by feeding and healing the sick. That kindness is the fundamental ministry of Ayurveda as well.
