Eat at regular meal times

In Ayurveda, it is suggested that we eat 3 meals a day and avoid snacking. The timing of the meals is important and can vary from individual to individual. Eating meals with time in between them, allows our digestive system to follow its natural process; food digests in the stomach and then moves to the intestine. While the intestine does its thing, our stomach gets to rest and reset before the next meal. Roughly, meal times should be:

  • Breakfast 8-9AM
  • Lunch 12-1PM
  • Dinner 5-7PM
