Lavender Tea Bread ~

Lavender is calming and great way to reduce stress this holiday season. Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves to make Lavender Tea Bread to share with our friends and family.

Lavender Tea Bread
(makes one 8-inch loaf)

3/4 – 1 cup coconut sugar
5 tbl butter
1 1/2 tsp organic lavender leaves, lightly crushed with a mortar & pestle
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tbl flax seeds
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
1 cup yogurt, plain
2 tbl confectioners’ sugar (to dust top)
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind (garnish on top)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch loaf pan and line the bottom with wax paper (or parchment paper). All ingredients should be at room temperature prior to preparation.

In a 3-qt mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Stir in the crushed lavender and vanilla. Add the eggs; beat well with an electric whisk (or hand blender). In a 2-qt mixing bowl, whisk together the pastry flour, almond flour, flax seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Gently gold 1/3 of the flour mixture into the sugar cream mixture. Fold in half the yogurt. Repeat the alternating pattern of flour and yogurt until all the ingredients are blended together.

Transfer the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until done, about 45 min. Test for doneness after 40 min. The bread is done when a sudden toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the bread starts to separate from the edges of the pan. Cool in the pan for 20 min. on a wire rack; then turn out onto the rack to cool completely.

Enjoy and share with your friends!

Fresh Whole Foods ~

Fresh Whole Foods ~

Though the lens of Ayurveda one must eat food that is from the earth. Fresh whole foods…not processed foods with additives and preservatives with refined flours, and sugars. Fresh whole foods are from the earth and our bodies know how to work with them as “food is medicine”.

Next time you are buying and cooking your food keep this in mind: how does it feel, smell, look, taste and sound, yes sound.

When we eat mindfully we have turned our food into medicine for our bodies and our minds.

Remember to chew your food well as it activates enzymes that break down hard to digest foods. In Ayurveda we say: “you are not what you eat but what you digest”.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages to get creative on your next shopping trip as well as in the kitchen – your health will thank you.

Beans ~

Beans ~

Got Beans?

Beans tend to be hard, heavy, rough, dry and cooling through the lens of Ayurveda. They are best suited for balancing pitta and kapha, however they are very hard to digest for vata and/or those new to incorporating beans into their diet.

Vata: Best to eat in soup due to the added moisture and warmth.

If you choose to use dry beans vs pre-cooked canned beans you must pre-soak overnight and cook for a minimum of 1 hour.

Share with us your favorite dish using beans…

Blooming Lotus ~

Blooming Lotus ~

Without the mud the lotus would not bloom….

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to start your daily meditation practice or deepen your current practice.

Meditation is an essential tool for bringing a person’s mind back into balance and should be incorporated into everyone’s health regimen. There are varying types of #meditation available depending on a person’s prakruti (your base point) and depending on if a person’s mind is in a state of rajas, tamas, or sattva. For example, a kapha mind should be kept busy. Conversely, a vata mind should be quieted and kept still. A pitta mind should be calmed. So an appropriate meditation technique should be chosen based on a person’s manasa prakruti and what state it is in.

Your life will open up to new experiences as the lotus flower below opens to greet each new day.

Sounds daunting – but it does not have to be. Contact us for a consultation to determine your prakruti and state of mind at: info@ayurvedawellnesshealing.com

Forgiveness = wellbeing

Forgiveness = wellbeing

Forgiveness is about your overall well being.  Hanging onto being right is like a growing cancer.  Being right gets heavier as time goes on, weighing you down more and more.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to find it in you to say: “I forgive you (insert name)” and “I love you (insert name)”.  Do it a few times and day and watch and feel yourself become light, happy and joyful.
