In Ayurveda there are six tastes and one of them is the sweet taste. Sweet foods are eaten in the largest quantity and include dairy, grains, legumes, starchy vegetables, fruits, and sugar. The sweet taste in these foods nourishes the body, invigorates the mind, relieves hunger, and improves the immune system. In addition to this it can inspire emotions of happiness, contentment, calmness, cheerfulness, love and satisfaction.
This is probably why so many of us crave sweet things, but that craving can turn towards foods high in refined sugar. These foods are powerful drugs and many of our health goals cannot be realized until we have a balanced relationship with sugar.
In this book you will learn how sugar affects your mood and what you can do to let go of it.
