Leafy Greens ~

Leafy Greens ~

It is leafy green season so lets take a look through the lens of Ayurveda the best way to prepare for our digestion…

The preferred Ayurvedic method for cooking vegetables is to sauté them in ghee or steam in a little water. Adding salt at the beginning reduces the cooking time. Excess raw vegetables are not advised as they are heavy and hard to digest! Raw food is better in Summer, or at lunch time when digestion is strongest.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves dark green leafy vegetables cooked using the following method:

Toast 2 tbsp. sesame seeds until slightly golden.
Stir fry 4 cups chopped green leafy vegetables with 2 chopped garlic cloves
1 tsp.chopped ginger.
Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and salt if desired.
Serve and enjoy!

Cheese and Food Combining ~

Cheese and Food Combining ~

Cheese and Food Combining…

Our digestive system was not designed to handle non-stop large, heavy, complex meals. The western eating habits place continual stress on the digestive system with inadequate “down-time” for the system to recuperate. When we over eat, eat too heavy or snack in-between meals we overwork the system causeing log-jams downstream resulting in undigested food that putrefies and ferments, leading to gas, bloating and potential accumulation of “ama” (toxins) from food and unprocessed emotions.

Though the lens of Ayurveda – food combining plays a big part in our digestion.

Cheese, which is cold, heavy and mucus forming, is best eaten alone or with vegetables. Many of the western serving methods (i.e., cheese and crackers; cheese and apples; macaroni and cheese, cheese with sandwiches, cheese pizza, etc.) are very difficult to digest.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves cheese sprinkled with a bit of black pepper.

June brings in a summer diet.

When planning a meal think of what you will find at your local farmers market. This will help to keep you balanced and aide in your digestion.

What is Kitchari?

What is Kitchari?

So, what’s kitchari and what does it have to do with Ayurveda and, more importantly, you?

kitchari

Kitchari is a traditional Ayurvedic dish that’s known to assist in detoxing the body and balancing all three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Kitchari provides awesome nutrients while cleansing the toxins out of the body. It’s a great way to cleanse the body and soul in a gentle way.

Kitchari is made with mung beans, Basmati rice, seasonal vegetables, ghee and spices. The mung beans are known for their ability to remove toxins, specifically pesticides and insecticides, from the body. Mung beans are also a great source of protein and provide a source of good carbohydrates and fiber. It’s also a great dish for those having digestive problems and recovering from illness. There’s many versions of Kitchari out there from simple to more elaborate.

Spring Allergies

Spring Allergies

 

Spring is upon us with it’s warmth, sunshine and pollen!

One way to get a jump on spring allergies…Nasya Oil.

The nose is the direct route to the brain and also the doorway to consciousness. It is the entrance for prana, the life force, which comes into the body through the breath. Healthy uncongested breathing is important to ensure proper flow of prana throughout the head and body. When an excess of bodily fluids accumulates in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas, it is best eliminated through the nose. Administration of herbally infused oil, or nasya, helps facilitate this cleansing process. Nasya Oil soothes and protects the nasal passage while nourishing the tissues.

Nasya is especially helpful on days that are cold, dry, or windy, or when the air is dusty or full of pollen. Great for air travel where recycled air drys out the sinus passages.

Daily nasal lubrication helps to:
• release tension in the head
• relieve accumulated stress
• improve quality of voice
• strengthen vision
• promote mental clarity

Classically, nasya oil is part of a daily routine for this very reason.
Adding this to your daily routine takes no more than a minute and is as simple as placing three to five drops of the oil in each nostril every morning. You will experience an immediate heightened sense of clarity and freshness.
