Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - FOOD JASMINE HEMSLEY -

You could eas­ily go ahead and cre­ate any of the dishes in my new cook­book (such as the taster se­lec­tion on these pages) and en­joy de­li­cious Ayurveda-in­spired food with­out delv­ing deeper into the an­cient holis­tic health­care prin­ci­ples at the root of them. But if you do want to ex­plore, I look for­ward to help­ing and sup­port­ing you. I en­coun­tered Ayurveda in 2001 and it’s been fun­da­men­tal to my life ever since.

Ayurveda is a 360-de­gree ap­proach, so it’s re­as­sur­ing to know that not ev­ery­thing is about get­ting the food right – and that when you can’t, there are so many other ways to bring bal­ance to your life. From rou­tines to rit­u­als, med­i­ta­tion to yoga, in­ten­tion-set­ting and even putting the world to rights with pos­i­tive thoughts be­fore bed, we can help look after our men­tal, spir­i­tual and emo­tional health and find our way to a nat­u­ral equilib­rium.

There is a wealth of in­for­ma­tion from 5,000 years of Ayurveda and my book cer­tainly can’t hold a frac­tion of it! In it I share a taster of the life­style knowl­edge of Ayurveda – tech­niques that can be­come your ev­ery­day tools and ex­am­ples of what, in time, can be­come in­tu­itive knowl­edge.

For more de­tails and masses of info, please go to my web­site (jas­mine­hem­s­ There you’ll find ar­ti­cles, shop­ping lists, meal plans, tech­niques and tips for the recipes, as well as rec­om­mended med­i­ta­tion teach­ers, re­treats and prod­ucts to help you on your Ayurvedic journey.

Sign up for all the lat­est re­leases in­clud­ing my up-and-com­ing Liv­ing La Vida ’Veda monthly news­let­ter, which will in­tro­duce you to ways of in­te­grat­ing Ayurveda into your life.
