Healing Your Relationship With Food: The Ayurveda Answer
By Meena Puri

Meena Puri’s book, “Healing Your Relationship With Food:  The Ayurveda Answer”  was inspired by the daily struggles of many Americans who seek answers in fad diets, miracle foods and quick fixes. Their pursuit of the ultimate solution often times results in the opposite affect of weight gain, poor digestion and mental health challenges. She explains why people could become anxious, worried and frustrated, then eventually give up … all because they are not solving the right problem.

Meena explains in detail how challenges like guilt, shame and emotional hunger combined with people’s disconnection from natural food sources creates the perfect storm for this dysfunctional relationship. Add to that a society that promotes overconsumption, addiction and lack of personal responsibility, all resulting in more illness and disease. Top it off with the emotional stress and pressures of the holidays where people give themselves permission to overindulge even more.

An Inspiring and wisdom filled nutrition book that cuts through all the fad diets and our conditioning around food with practical and common sense tools along with delicious and easy to make Ayurvedic recipes to not only balance but to add aroma, color and joy back in your kitchen.  Food is a medium through which we can heal our life and this book can get you started on that path with ease.

Healing Your Relationship with Food introduces the reader to The Ayurveda Answer– a methodology that has been practiced for thousands of years in India and is now spreading rapidly around the world.  Her book not only addresses the challenges of unhealthy eating but also helps the reader:

  • Realign with the positive aspects of eating.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of true nature of food.
  • Simplify food choices to optimize their health.
  • Bring joy back into meal planning and preparation.
  • With simple recipes to improve their relationship with food.

She teaches people how to trust their own body’s wisdom to make food an ally in creating long-lasting health, regardless of their background or beliefs. Healing Your Relationship with Food – The Ayurveda Answer invites the reader to take a more holistic look at their eating. Meena explains how the elements of nature and the different body types influence the relationship with food. Then goes on to explain how to use the time of day and seasons of the year to make effective lifestyle adjustments.

“I am so glad to have found Susan for my book project.  More than the editing work, she supported my ideas and my vision throughout the whole writing process and encouraged me every step of the way.  it’s through her questioning and discerning that shaped my book into what it is. She is thorough and diligent in her work and I really appreciated that.  I have more books coming up and I would not go anywhere else to get them edited.  Thank you Susan!”
