What is the difference between an Ayurveda share and Traditional Share?
Muddy Feet Farm offers both Ayurveda and Traditional CSA shares.
The Ayurveda CSA Share is put together using Ayurvedic principles. The notion we are what we eat is taken a step further with Ayurveda, because we consider the effect the qualities of the food we eat have on the mind and body. Simply put, we take on the qualities of the food we eat. In the Ayurveda share we offer vegetables with sattvic qualities, qualities of balance and harmony. Onions and potatoes, by their nature, are tamasic, meaning they exhibit dull, inert, and lethargic qualities. Tomatoes and peppers are rajasic , meaning they create overactivity in the mind and restlessness. Garlic exhibits both rajasic and tamasic qualities. As a general rule, the Ayurveda share does not include any vegetables from the nightshade family (potatoes, peppers, tomatoes).
The nightshade family (potatoes, peppers, tomatoes) contain alkaloids, which cause inflammation in the joints and body. For this reason, we do not grow most nightshades. Whether you choose an Ayurveda or Traditional CSA share, we recommend eating the nightshade vegetables in moderation and part of a balanced diet. For those who experience joint stiffness, pain, or inflammatory dis-ease we recommend staying away from the nightshade family completely.
The Traditional CSA Share offers a variety of vegetables including those from the nightshade family (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers), onions and garlic (when available). The vegetables are grown using our standard of growing high quality, nourishing vegetables.
