When sharing with my Panchakarma clients the art of Ayurvedic nutrition and cooking, they tend to feel overwhelmed. They may feel like they are not able to change their lifestyle to manage it and it may be difficult for their family to be on the same page, enjoying the changes for healthier life. I ensure them Ayurvedic cooking does not have to be difficult and it can be tasty and fun for the whole family. This crepe recipe is a perfect example of an easy way to incorporate Ayurvedic food into your life for the whole family to enjoy.
