Fall Colors

The days are getting shorter and the air cooler and dryer.

Autumn is a time when Agni (digestive fire) has begun cooling off. Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows the importance colors play in balancing the body. According to #Ayurveda, everything in the universe is energetic and gives off a vibration, colors too!

Since #autumn is a cooler season, one can balance this climate by wearing warmer rich hues…like yellows, oranges and reds.

Take a look at the fall colors in nature…to stay in balance one must live in harmony with nature.

Bedtime Routine~

Bedtime Routine~

How’s your sleep? Do you have a bedtime routine that is helping or hurting you from a good nights rest?

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to embrace an Ayurvedic Bedtime Routine by being in bed by 10pm.
To make that happen:

Turn off the TV at least an hour before bed.

Resist online anything—shopping, Twitter, Facebook, news gathering, or working.

Use that extra hour for self-reflection, journaling, restorative yoga, or meditation.

Treat yourself to a foot massage. Rub lavender-scented warm sesame oil on your feet and pull on a pair of old socks.

Put on your favorite deep relaxation CD or yoga nidra CD (earlier in the day) to help you practice resting and to take the edge off the nervous system. Doing yoga nidra too close to bedtime could refresh your energy instead of moving you into deep sleep.

Make yourself some warm milk laced with special sleep-inducing herbs. Pour 4 to 6 ounces of milk (organic) into a saucepan, along with a pinch or two of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and saffron, and a teaspoon of ghee, and simmer for about three minutes. Remove from the heat and let set for a minute or so. Add raw honey to taste—either more than or less than a teaspoon. Bottoms up!

Lights out

Squash Pancakes ~

Looking for something to try for lunch or dinner? Fall is a perfect time of year to eat root veggies. So let’s get creative and bring a breakfast staple into the day

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves Squash Pancakes as they are easy to make help us to stay balanced in the dryness of Fall and Winter.

Squash Pancake
Prep: 20 min
Cooking time: 5 min
Cooking Tip: Cook the pancake on a cast iron pan – it won’t stick.

Ingredients:
1 c rice flour
1/4 c cream of rice
1 medium piece of squash
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c of grated coconut
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 to 1 c of water
2 tbsp of chopped cilantro

Wash the squash and grate it.
In a large mixing bowl mix rice, cream of rice, grated squash, grated coconut, cilantro, salt and 1 tbsp oil. Mix all the ingredients very well. Add water to make a thick batter. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Heat a cast-iron skillet or non-stick frying pan. With your hands, take some batter and place it on the pan. With repeated strokes, using your fingers spread the batter into 3/4 cm thick round pancake. Cook for two minutes. Flip the pancake over and cook for another three minutes.

Serve warm…add some chutney on top or eat as is and add some warm arugula or spinach as a side. Enjoy!

Got Avocado’s?

Got Avocado’s?

Like avocado’s? If not, you should.

Through the lens of #Ayurveda avocado’s are great in the Fall and Winter which is #Vata season…dry and light.

The avocado’s heavy, oily, and cool qualities lubricate the intestines and moisten dry lungs. Eating this nourishing food helps soothe the joints, moisturize dry hair, skin and nails, and enhance libido. Avocado strongly builds ojas (vigor).

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves avocado’s sliced in half, remove the seed, sprinkle with a bit of salt, pepper and turmeric…grab a spoon, dig in and enjoy!

Grapefruit ~

Grapefruit ~

In Ayurveda, the secret of the grapefruit lies in its powerful flavors, sour and bitter. These cleansing tastes stimulate the flow of bile, diluting and flushing it out of the gallbladder and into the small intestine. Stagnant bile tends to collect and thicken in the gall bladder, where the liver stores the bile after producing it, forming problematic sludge and stones. The sludge inhibits the drainage of bile, congesting the liver. Sour and bitter flavors encourage the bile to move and flush toxins out of the liver to the relief of your newly cleansed liver cells.

*Grapefruits are contraindicated for high blood pressure or when using anti-depressants. If you take thyroid medication, please check with your doctor before adding grapefruit to your diet.

Grapefruit with Ginger, Honey and Cardamom

Ingredients
2 pinch Cardamon
2 pinch Ginger (dried)
1 c Grapefruit
1 tsp Honey

Preperation
1. Peel grapefruit
2. Slice in flat circles
3. Mix ginger and cardmom with honey into a spicy paste. Drizzle over the sliced grapefruit. Cardamom is optional.

Enjoy this wonderful recipe for breakfast to help you stay balanced this fall.
