Maharishi University of Management’s Distance Education program offers an Ayurvedic Cooking course. Maharishi University of Management’s “Ayurvedic Cooking for Health and Enjoyment” online course explores the joys and benefits of cooking using principles of Maharishi Ayurveda. Just like in the campus-dining hall, all featured meals are vegetarian.
Ayurveda is a holistic system of health and healing. Many people translate the word literally as “knowledge of life.” The goal of Ayurveda is to create health and balance in the mind as well as the body. This is accomplished through preventative medicine, a balanced daily routine, and a nourishing diet. “Ayurvedic Cooking for Health and Enjoyment” focuses on the diet portion of the system of Ayurvedic living. The online course helps you find balance of mind and body through a tasty and satisfying diet.
As the Ayurvedic proverb states, “When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need.”
The 10 lesson series is offered in a cooking show format, similar to what you might see on The Food Network, but with more than just recipe instruction.
This course covers:
- how to use all six tastes to curb cravings
- how to adjust your cooking for seasonal changes
- how to improve digestion with food and spices
Each lesson includes step-by-step video instructions, recipes, and explanations of the health and well-being benefits of each meal. Over 35 dishes are featured, including, breakfast food, soups, salads, main dishes, international recipes, and desserts. Additionally, students hear Ayurvedic experts and chefs discuss their favorite ingredients, cooking techniques, and recipes for a complete vegetarian diet.
