Did you know what you eat can benefit more than just your body?
The Doctors welcome chef Radhi Devlukia who shares how ayurvedic cooking can help the mind and soul in addition to your body. She explains one aspect of this type of cooking is using the power of scents.
"Everything we allow into our senses is somehow processed or digested by our body," chef Radhi says, explaining when something like lavender is incorporated into food it can calm the body and when citrus is used in meals it can energize you. She encourages viewers to be conscious of how the spices and ingredients we use can affect and change our moods.
Radhi shows us how to prepare Kitchari, a staple in Indian cooking. She uses the cumin, coriander, and fennel in the dish, which she calls her "introductory spices" and suggests trying these 3 if cooking with spices is new to you. She also notes these spices can help with digestion.
