Everyone of the holistic healing processes work on the concept of energy. According to physics, even solid things are nothing but energy. If you read or watch the movie of The Secret, you will clearly know what I am talking about here. The entire universe is nothing but energy.
Anyways, leaving the spiritual perception aside, here is some practical information. We all make recipes and often mix ingredients together without any fixed protocols. We just try and see how it goes, and it usually goes well.
Ayurveda obviously does not only emphasize on the taste of a dish but also how successful it is in its purpose. The purpose is to provide you with positive energy that helps us to carry on throughout the day.
Is your food giving you the energy that you need? How do you feel after taking a meal? For once, just move your attention from the tongue and try to catch up on how you feel otherwise. Motivated or dull? Enthusiastic or lethargic? That is something to ponder on.
What I learned recently is the types of energies our vegetables carry. All vegetables that grow above the ground carry positive energy. All vegetables that grow below the ground carry neutral energy. There are certain exceptions to this. Eggplant/brinjal and mushrooms carry negative energy in spite of growing above the ground. Tomato is another exception that carries neutral energy. Onion and garlic are two other vegetables that are known to have negative energies.
Now, it is not that we need to give up all those with negative energies but we can mix them accordingly. For example, adding an onion to lot of green vegetables is better than adding it to potato (which is neutral). We can keep this information in mind while mixing ingredients.
