Stargazing ~

Stargazing ~

How often do you look up at the night sky?

One Vedic text declares that the entire universe is contained inside ones heart.

Feeling down? Try looking up at the night sky tonight…when looking at the stars it re-connects us with the universe.

Looking up is uplifting, as it raises ones sternum and chin, allowing the rib cage to open and our lungs to expand. This is so key as most of us look down at computers, electronic gadgets, our feet while we walk, and reading.

So give it a try tonight, step away from the TV, your phone or anything else that can wait…and let stargazing ignite hope, dreams and a sense of wonder.

Black Pepper

Black Pepper

Black Pepper = heat

Through the lens of Ayurveda, the heating and pungent properties of black pepper work to help metabolize food as it is digested in our system. The stimulating quality is also used to clear congestion in the respiratory system as well as other processes.

Choose organically grown black pepper associated with a fair trade cooperative is highly preferable to conventional pepper.

Black Pepper Aids Digestion through the lens of Ayurveda in rekindling agni, (digestive fire)

Black Pepper is an Antioxidant and helps in cold and flu remedies. Black pepper and honey is a traditional Ayurvedic approach to respiratory congestion, helping to expectorate and dry up mucus membranes (Frawley, 1986). In Western herbalism, it is used in antiseptic cold and flu preventatives like fire cider.

Pepper has cleansing and antioxidant properties, and helps to transport the benefits of any other herbs to the different parts of the body.

Black pepper is a warming spice and has a pungent taste. It is terrific for pacifying Kapha, and just a little bit helps pacify Vata. Black pepper should be used in moderation as it does increase Pitta.

Almond Milk Chai ~

Almond Milk Chai ~

Almond Milk Chai…one of Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC favorites!

Sweet & hearty, almond milk chai is a rich and decadent treat on any winter’s eve. Aromatic spices bring cheer to the season. Serve at a holiday party as a healthy alternative to eggnog or hot cocoa.

Restore Peace & Tranquility

Almond milk’s cool, heavy sweetness creates a sensation of stability and calm as it nourishes your nervous system. After a night of insomnia, its liver nourishing qualities provide relief from lingering sleep deprived jitters. This almond drink is a great substitute to kick your coffee habit and replenish your adrenals. If the stress of the day leaves you feeling wiped – this drink is liquid comfort food that will help you decompress.

Soothes Your Digestive Tract

The creamy nature of almond milk, ghee and maple syrup soothes your digestive tract when you are inflamed. Almond milk’s cooling nature is a traditional remedy for ulcers and gastritis. Its demulcent, coating properties can also soothe a dry, irritated throat. For those suffering from lactose intolerance, a warm mug of almond chai is an excellent substitute that won’t cause digestive upset.

ingredients
1 c Almond Milk
1/4 tsp Cardamom
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Ghee
1/4 inch Ginger (Fresh)
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
2 pinch Nutmeg

Preparation:
Bring almond milk to a simmer, uncovered. Watch closely as milk starts to heat up, as almond milk overflows the pot if it boils. As soon as almond milk starts to simmer, remove from heat and add spices. Brew for 3-5 minutes and serve.

For a fresher, tastier result, make your own almond milk from scratch using this recipe.

Enjoy!!
