The color Gold ~

The color Gold ~

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows the effects color can play into our wellbeing.

Through the lens of Ayurveda “The color gold is made up primarily of fire, water and earth but also has a little ether and air. Gold is warm, slightly moist, heavy and stabilizing.

In the mind, the color gold promotes stability and can be beneficial as part of a complete plan to manage anxiety and bi-polar tendencies. It accomplishes this without any sedative side effects. In fact, the colorgold is energizing in a manner that promotes endurance rather than a quick high. It uplifts the spirit and helps to transform consciousness, as it promotes greater awareness. In the body, the color gold supports all immune functions. It helps prevent disease and is useful in the management of autoimmune disease.

As you can see from the description, gold is neither very balancing nor very disturbing to any one dosha. It is safe to use by everyone. This makes gold a tridoshic color.” ~ Excerpt from “Healing Your Life, Lessons on the Path of Ayurveda,” by Dr. Marc Halpe

Incorporating gold into your life can be as easy as being in the warmth of the sun, eating honey, wearing gold jewelry, or gold clothing – how about some gold pillows on your furniture?

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…

Spaghetti Squash ~

Spaghetti Squash ~

Don’t you just love Spaghetti Squash?

It’s that big yellow thing in the produce aisle that you quizzically look at and think – “what is that” and “how do you cook it”?

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC has a favorite spaghetti squash dish and it’s so easy to make.

Prep Time: 1 hr.
Servings: 2 – 4

Ingredients:
1 lg. spaghetti squash
1/2 cup water, plus more as needed

Preheat oven to 375. Pour the water into a 13×9 inch glass baking dish. Cut the ends off the squash and discard. Cut the squash in 1/2 lengthwise. Remove the seeds. Place each 1/2 cut-side down in the prepared pan. Bake for 45 min., or until the squash is fork-tender, adding another 1/2 cup water if necessary to prevent the squash from burning. Let cool for 5 to 10 min. The flesh will break into spaghetti-like strands as you scrape it out with a fork.

Serve with Olive Oil, salt and pepper or top with Pesto Chutney – so yummy!
