Food

The food at Kare is designed as a healing diet that gladdens the heart and nourishes the body.

According to Charaka and Sushruta, fathers of Ayurvedic medicine and surgery, "the entire world seeks food; it is the life source of all beings; clarity, longevity, intelligence, happiness, contentment, strength and knowledge are all rooted in food".

The body needs different types of nutrients that perform various functions. The body gets these nutrients from the vast variety of foods available according to age, sex, physical activity, physiological conditioning, and one's constitution. Ayurveda recommends food that is "Saatvic" in nature. "Saatvic" food is vegetarian, has a light sweet taste, with mild flavors of spice and is easy to digest. It consists of fruits and vegetables, and mainly focuses on freshly prepared and properly cooked food, consumed at the right time, and in the right quantity. A balanced diet includes all the six tastes - sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent.

At Kare, the diet is customized as per individual body constitution keeping in mind, the principles of contradictory food combinations (Virudha Aahar), and the order of tastes in the meal. They use only the purest ingredients recommended by Ayurveda - rock sugar / jaggery, rock salt and cow's ghee. The foundation of food prepared at Kare is based on the fundamental principle of Ayurveda.

Things to do (optional)

Kare has an extensive library, indoor games, and an outdoor walking track. Nature lovers can trek up the hill to see the Ganesha temple, and experience the breathtaking view at the top. They can also meet the village inhabitants, who have been living there for centuries.
