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!!

New Moon

New Moon

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start and turning over a new leaf or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the December 18 new moon last four weeks up to the January 16 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from December 18 to the January 1 full moon.

Give this gift to yourself – it’s free but worth millions.

Are you present when you eat?

Are you present when you eat?

When was the last time you pulled out a chair at your table and enjoyed your meal? Can’t recall?

Are you experiencing gas, heartburn or indigestion? Through the lens of Ayurveda it is not so much about what you eat as it is to being mindful (present) when you eat.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing has a few tips to help you get back on track and to view food as medicine…

~ Stop
~ Breath
~ Prepare foods that are in season
~ Use spices to help your digestive fires
~ Set the table
~ Turn off all electronics
~ Eat your heaviest meal between 12 – 2 pm
~ Smile

You are not what you eat but what you digest and that includes your site and hearing.

Living in Harmony with Nature ~

Living in Harmony with Nature ~

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows the importance of living in harmony with nature and it’s cycles…

Ayurveda promotes mental well-being by bringing the body and mind back into balance through following the rhythms of nature. When the body becomes exhausted from living, we don’t have the energy, so we become anxious. “And when we become totally exhausted, we become depressed.”

From an Ayurvedic perspective, depression and anxiety are symptoms of a system that is overtaxed and out of whack. Massage, nasal breathing, meditation, resetting our internal clock, doing yoga, and even eating warm foods can help us get out of that state of chronic imbalance.

Here are simple Ayurvedic practices to help reset your system:

Abhyanga, daily self-massage with oil, calms the nervous system and boosts immunity by removing toxins that have traveled from our organs to the skin. As part of a daily routine, it also helps to lubricate muscles, tissues, and joints. Place oil in your nose and ears to help prevent sore throats, sinus congestion, and allergies.

Nasal breathing while walking or exercising activates a calming vagal response and drives oxygen more efficiently into the lower lobes of the lungs, compared to mouth breathing.

Try to move snack food to meal times and eat three meals a day.

Get to bed before 10:00 pm. The longer you stay up past 10:00 pm, the more wired and exhausted you become.

Eat warm cooked foods slowly and calmly to balance the nervous system.

Do Sun Salutations slowly with deep nasal breathing to open the diaphragm. Just 10 minutes in the morning can have a dramatic impact.

According to Ayurveda, the inability to focus is connected to our energy levels because the mind and body require a certain amount of energy to settle down and focus.

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!
