Swayambhu denotes "that which is created by its own accord". A manifestation of self!
In the groves of Jageshwar, everything is self-created, life is self-created, so is Shiva.
Cafe Swayambhu is a little haven in the heart of the deodar jungles of Jageshwar that promotes local satvik food, traditional Kumaoni food cooking. It strives to maintain traditional and regional cuisine and supports farming of plants, seeds, and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem.
Food For Soul
Food has an immense effect on the body and temperament. It is scientifically proven that certain foods give one a clearer skin, balanced digestion, and provide more energy to one’s personality. Light, simple and wholesome food as delineated in a Satvic diet is nutritious and leads to a long life free of diseases. Good health leads to a mind at peace and thereby greater clarity of thought.
Fresh fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, gourd, eggplants, bitter gourd, etc. form part of the Sattvic diet. Protein-rich foods like pulses, particularly green grams, sprouts are Sattvic food. Most dry fruits, milk, butter, clarified butter to form part of the Sattvic diet.
The diet is spiced with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon coriander, fennel, cardamom among others. These flavorsome spices are well known for their health-giving properties.
Sattvic régime is an antithesis of the tamasic diet which is heavily dependent on processed food that leads to weight gain, lifestyle diseases and builds fatty acids in the stomach. We at Asian adventures design tours that let you enjoy the benefits of nourishing simple food with yoga and meditation amid nature and a majestic view of the Himalayan mountains.
This revitalizing change can be incorporated into a lifestyle. The positivity with which your life will be imbued will add tremendous benefits to your work and personal life.
