Fasting Recipes banner


Navratri coincides with the beginning of winter and a change of season. From an Ayurvedic perspective, eating foods like meat, grains, alcohol, onion, garlic etc. attract and absorb negative energies and should be avoided. This is to ease the burden on our bodies during this season when we tend to have low immunity and therefore are more susceptible to fall sick.

So Hindus fast, and eat sattvic food while worshipping goddess Durga for cleansing and purification, not just for the body but also for the mind or the soul. This cleansing process brings about well-being, harmony and perfect balance in our lives.
