What kind of food we should eat for healthy life!

When the food goes into the body, it becomes mineral substances. All the food which we are 
taking should have a taste. Whenever we have food, we should check whether food has all 
6 tastes together for a long and healthy life. In Tamil, we call it as “Arusuvai”. It means 
six tastes.

Ok, Are we having six tastes in our daily life? Definitely No. All six tastes will be available 
only in the feast or party. But, Ayurvedic recommend to have all six tastes in our regular diet for a healthy life. 

Six tastes are Astringent, Sour, Salt, bitter, Sweet, Spicy. Astringent needed for blood 
production. Sour taste needed for producing saturated fat. Salt is required for our bone 
strength. Bitter taste is important for our nerve system. Sweet needed for healthy 
flesh/muscles. Spicy required for production of our Saliva. 

Hence, all 6 tastes provides six types of mineral substances to our body. These six tastes 
must come from our food. So, we need to check whether our food has these 6 tastes.

For Example: We are having Rice cake/Idli/Dosa in the morning. Are we having 
Astringent? No. Sour - Yes we have. During fermentation sour taste is getting added in the 
batter. Salt - Yes we have. Bitter - No. Sweet taste, Yes we do have. All rice items are 
carbohydrate and it has sweet in it. Spicy - yes we do have. All our 
chutneys are spice. Hence, we don’t have astringent and bitter taste in the morning diet. We 
should have all six tastes in our food. We might take food once a day or five times a day. It 
does not matter. Whenever you have food, these 6 tastes should be there. So what we can 
have for the astringent and bitter?

For the astringent, we can have any banana flower recipe or little bit fenugreek seed 
powder. We can make this powder with spice and salt and store it. For bitter taste, we can have little bit honey. Don’t beget shock. Actually 
when you taste you will feel sweet taste from the honey. But when it goes inside the body 
and becoming metabolism, actually it will be a bitter taste. That’s why this 
is very good medicine. So, we have to check these six tastes in our diet properly.

At max, we should have Living food. That means, we have to eat more 
fruits. Example, we are picking matured raw mango or banana and storing in the 
home. After 3 to 4 day it still becomes fruit and getting ready for us to eat. So, 
all fruits are live until we are consuming. 

In our diet top priority is given to fruits. Then, the food that gave life. All sprouted 
grains. Example: Until green gram stored in a tin nothing will happen. But if 
you soak overnight and keep it in wet cloth for a day, it will become sprouted 
grain. These are the food that gave life. 

The third category is deadly food. This is our regular food. When we cook or boil all 
vegetables like brinjal, ladies finger, potato are become deadly food. 

The fourth category is killed food. All meat comes in this category. So, we should 
consider food in the order Living food, The food that gave life, deadly food, killed food. we 
should try to avoid the fourth category until unless required. 

Try to use banana leaf for eating food instead of plastic or paper plate. Because while eating 
hot food in the banana leaf, you will get Chlorophyll from it. It is very good for our health as 
it has many essential substances for our body. 

Have the water which is stored in the Brass, Copper, Bronze pots and energized by 
sunlight. Taking water from plastic bottle is not good for health.

Try to take two soups per day. This will make you hungry and active. 

Eat at least one fruit daily. Don’t consider banana only as fruit and take daily. We 
have different fruits available in the market like apple, orange, grapes, guava, papaya, 
water melon etc. Daily take one type of fruit. Make it this as a habit. 

Also try to have 5 different color vegetables in your daily diet.
Spend time for your food and give respect for the food. Then this food will definitely make 
your long life and healthy life.

Why we need to eat Food?

The human body composed of many different types of cells that together 
create tissues and subsequently organ systems. They ensure homeostasis and the viability of 
the human body.

If the human body biologically not acting, we say He/She is dead. It applicable for all 
animals as well. So, For biological function of our body, we need to consume food.

When do we need to eat food?

We should eat food whenever we get hungry. Somebody used to say that they are eating on 
time. But, its a wrong habit. Its a best practice that taking food when we get hungry. This 
will make sure to keep us healthy. For example, all animals and birds will eat food only when they get hungry. All other time, they will sleep. Also, avoiding food when you get 
hungry will lead to unhealthy and make you ulcer kind of diseases.

In Ayurvedic medicine, Hungry is defined as Fire. The reason is while we get hungry our 
stomach will slightly start burn. That means it expects food.

How to eat food?

While we get hungry, we should not kill the hungry completely. That means we should not 
eat food 100% to fill stomach. We have to eat only 75%. You can split into 50% of solid food. 
25% of Liquid food and 25% empty. While cooking also we do the same in a pan. We don’t 
cover the pan completely. In the bottom we add solid food like rice on top of that water and 
leave some space on top to cook. Our body also should be like that. The reason behind of 
eating 75% only and leaving 25% is to get hungry again properly.  

Example: Consider fire, you should not completely off the fire, you have to keep some 
portion to make the lighting again. The same will be applicable while talking about hungry.
