Delectable spice blends for Ayurvedic balance, health & well-being
Bina Mehta is a certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant and teacher of Indian cooking classes in Fort Collins, Colorado. Bina grew up in the exuberant city of Mumbai, India, where many traditions weave together into a rich cultural tapestry. Since moving to the United States over thirty years ago, Bina has been dedicated to sharing Indian culture’s respect and adoration for food and vibrant living.
The story of Bina’s spice blends began when her students asked for pre-blended spices they could use at home. To fulfill their requests, Bina drew inspiration from formal Ayurveda study, family-rooted experiences and insights gathered from teaching Indian cooking. Bina personally performs the roasting for individual ingredients, discerning readiness when the aroma is just right and the flavor is at its maximum.
Recommended for beginners and culinary connoisseurs alike, Bina Mehta Spice Blends elevate daily meals. They are a time-saving treat for families and professionals with limited time to cook. People who adore authentic Indian cuisine, but do not wish to stock the multiple spices necessary, use Bina’s blends for making Indian curries, lentils, and more!
Supportive nourishment for daily meals
Ayurveda identifies six flavors in food and links them to the five elements of Hindu philosophy: earth, water, fire, air and ether. The flavors are traditionally used as guides in determining the effects of foods on health. Proper nourishment ensures a balance of the five elements within the body. If a person’s diet and daily routine become unbalanced, illness can result until balance is restored.
Bina’s blends include all six flavors needed to fully satisfy the palate, balance the elements and maintain a strong digestive fire. According to Ayurveda, spices are a very effective way to get intense, bright flavors into your diet. Many of the spices Bina uses in her blends have been shown to benefit digestion and the immune system.
Bina Mehta Spice Blends are pure and all-natural, made without preservatives, dairy, gluten, MSG or other additives. They are roasted, ground, blended and packaged in Fort Collins, Colorado.
