Anupama Shukla is a bureaucrat by profession. She grew up in a family that observed many guidelines related to a Sattvik lifestyle, but like most teenagers paid scant attention to them. Growing older, she moved from taking her body (and mind) for granted, to becoming increasingly aware of how what we eat shapes who we are. Her other interests include healing through aromatherapy and Bach Flower Remedies. Anupama can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The cover of the book depicts a platter of food served in a traditional leaf plate. Sattvik
is a word from the Vedic philosophy which means pure. Sattvik
food means the food which enables the body to stay in balance. The book is a collection of vegetarian Indian food recipes. The author starts with a note on sattvik
foods and explains why it is important to eat the right food. She gives a introduction on the ayurvedic perspective of food. She also gives information on the effects of the common foods that we regularly consume.
The recipes are simple and easy to cook. I tried a couple of them, and they turned out quite well.
I give “Sattvik Foods of India” 3 stars on a scale of 5.
