The "Ayurvedic Nutrition & Cooking", a book by Dr. Sunanda Ranade is a timely gift for all the lovers of Ayurveda. Now-a-days, Ayurveda is becoming widespread and has been accepted all over the world. Everyone would like to understand this ancient science and try to introduce it into his daily practices. Food is an essential requirement in life and one can attain good health by following a proper, natural diet. Most health problems develop due to the wrong eating habits and cooking methods. The chemistry and physics of different food materials is now well known to the world, but it is not understood how the body transforms the food into substances like cholesterol. Cholesterol is understood as a substance in the body and also in different food materials. But the conversion process is not yet understood by modern science. Only through Ayurveda can one understand the constitution of the body and of every material in the world, not only as a physical substance, but through the process of interaction. Dr. Sunanda Ranade's book contains a great deal of material to explain the Ayurvedic constitution of an individual and the process by which the food is converted into energy. It also explains how sickness or imbalance is developed through the wrong diet and suggests remedies to restore the balance. In the recipe section, some of the preparations indicate the increase, decrease or balance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The individual can understand the constitution of his own body and select recipes to maintain the balance of his health. The information contained in this book will be particularly useful in foreign countries since many people are looking for holistic healing methods and a natural cure through Ayurvedic diet and food preparations. This book by Dr. Sunanda Ranade is a very valuable contribution towards Ayurvedic literature.
