Ayurvedic diet

Your Ayurveda diet

We live in a hectic world where food is no longer used to nourish, but only to satiate. In which food is heavily treated and the original form is hardly recognisable anymore. And in which products from far-away countries are more popular than regional foods. Ayurvedic nutrition is the counterpart to the view of our western world. Deceleration and conscious enjoyment, unprocessed food and local products, perceiving the feeling of satiety again and differentiating between emotional and physical hunger. Your Ayurveda diet: As unique and individual as you are. The diet is adapted to you. To your everyday life, your state of health, your phase of life. Adapted to your goals: Do you want to renew body tissues, relieve diseases and pain or just be happy? Nutrition is the foundation of health for body, mind and spirit. Enjoy it.

With the European Ayurveda cuisine we have transferred the principles of the Indian healing art to the taste of our latitudes and created our own culinary brand. At the European Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof we use fresh organic food from the region. The offer of our European Ayurveda cuisine is meat-free, so that your body is already actively relieved when you eat. We have been recognized as a Vegan Welcome Hotel by the worldwide cooperation Vegan Welcome for our healthy and ethically responsible lifestyle. For our guests, this means that you will be offered a vegan option at every meal.

We are very pleased that our concept of European Ayurveda has received so much recognition regionally and internationally.

If you are currently enjoying a cure with us, your Ayurveda specialist will explain to you exactly what you may enjoy at which meal. For pure moments of pleasure that have a lasting effect.

Your Dosha-appropriate diet

Your Vata diet

This diet will help you can calm your Vata. You should specifically choose foods that are the opposite of Vata, to balance the vata qualities. Make sure to regularly eat warm meals, which are especially liquid, oily and heavy. Feel how your Agni (digestive fire) is strengthened and your sensory organs are invigorated.

Your Pitta diet

Enjoy a Pitta diet if you want to soothe or reduce this dosha. Pitta has the characteristics of hot, liquid, sour, spicy and light. So make sure you create the opposite of this with your diet. Enjoy four small meals a day and go for cool and raw foods. Feel how your body is deacidified and your blood is cleansed.

Your Kapha diet

Kapha appears cool, heavy, stable and oily. Enjoy a Kapha diet if you want to soothe this dosha. Feel free to fast regularly or skip meals. Pay attention to warm and light meals in small portions and with a high vegetable amount. Feel how blockages are released and your metabolism is stimulated. 

Your Tridosha diet

Your doshas are equally balanced. Or you have a family that combines Vata, Pieta and Kapha. Tridosha nutrition encompasses the entire Ayurvedic diet and you may enjoy as you wish. If you like, you can orient yourself seasonally to each of the doshas: Vata in fall and winter, Kapha in spring and summer, and Pitta in summer. Be sure to eat high quality foods and eat a balanced diet. Feel how you stay in balance and your body calmly goes through the seasons.
