How to Cook Divine Ayurvedic Recipes with Divya Alter

Season #2

We are so grateful to have the fabulous Divya Alter back on the podcast today and talk about her creative process in making the most Ayurvedically aligned, delicious and digestible meals. Divya has a successful restaurant in Manhattan, NY that completely changes the restaurant game given the level of intentionality behind it from making food fresh everyday to the high quality oils she uses to cook every dish. We dive into the biggest misconceptions in Ayurvedic cooking and she divulges her accessible and simple tips and tricks for cooking Ayurvedically. Divya is also a best selling cookbook author for "What to Eat for How You Feel" and a culinary educator hosting many cooking classes and courses. In this episode we talk about:
