If you’re following an Ayurveda diet or any dosha reducing diet whether for vata, pitta or kapha dosha, you’ve asked yourself this question: What foods can I eat?

It gets confusing with all the dosha reducing charts of yes’s and no’s. And then, if you’re following two charts for two out-of-balance doshas, then you’re really juggling a lot of information.

To help end the confusion and get you on track with your Ayurveda diet minus the headache and worry, keep reading. We’ve got a great suggestion.

Certain foods are tri-doshic. That is, when taken in reasonable amounts, they do not imbalance the doshas.

We’ve laid out a photo-tour of tri-doshic foods which generally speaking are safe for any Ayurveda diet. They include fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, herbs and spices.
