At Karvaan, food is an essential element. It represents the Fire energy the fuel generator. It is rightly said, that what we eat is what we become.
Today we see the "weight loss industry" booming: restrictive eating, skipped meals, disordered eating, binging as a natural response to starvation common in restricting calories, cutting out entire food groups, usually grains—all measures to lose weight. This is not healthful eating, and this needs to stop.
In general, the food served at Karvaan is natural, healthy and sattvic. The idea is that the sattvic food helps in calming the mind and body. The energy of body is not utilized in digesting heavy food. But the food supports meditation & yoga practice and detoxify your mind and body.
