While technically not yogurt, how would milk alternative "yogurts" be classified? Would you be able to combine those with other things more readily?
What would the Ayurvedic assessment of Greek yogurt?
Greek yogurt is so similar to regular yogurt, we haven't really made a different determination. Thanks!
Would adding small amounts of honey, cardomon, cinnamon & tumeric (after making the yogurt) be helpful for V3P3K2 digestion?
Always loved yogurt for breakfast, snacks and even dessert with berries...I find it calms me and makes me happy :D...It must be the Vata in me;). Heavy? I don't really find it to be that for me... It's one of the foods I digest so easily...

His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion.

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.
