What does Ayurveda say about meat?

Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to health and considers diet to be an important aspect of overall well-being. While Ayurveda does not strictly prohibit the consumption of meat, it offers guidelines based on individual constitution (dosha), health conditions, and the quality of the meat. Generally, Ayurveda suggests that lean, freshly cooked, and properly spiced meats may be easier to digest and less likely to create imbalance. However, it also emphasizes a plant-based diet for its potential to promote balance and reduce harm to animals and the environment.
