All work no play makes an immune-deficient body.

In Ayurveda, Ojas is our protection, our immunity from disease.

Try a few of these tips from Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC to build up your Ojas…or contact us for a private consultation…

Building your Physical Ojas:

• Eat Seasonally. If we eat what is offered by nature seasonally and without much processing, our ojas will tend to be strong. We will then naturally crave that which is attuned to our constitution (Body type/Dosha).
• Move your breath through your body for 20 minutes upon arising.
• Cleanse or Detox in the Fall and Spring. Ama (undigested foods and experiences that store in our bodies) When Ama is less, ojas is more.
• Eat 2-3 meals a day. Allowing proper time for complete digestion enables ojas to be formed. Eating too frequently creates ama.
• Sip hot water throughout the day. Sipping hot water will clear your channels of ama and refresh the space.

 

Building Ojas in the Mind Body:

• Meditate Daily. Allowing time and space for the digestion of mental impressions clears the confusion and mental ama (toxins).
• Self-massage with warm oil (sesame) before showering will help to nurture your nerves, which enables ojas to spread throughout you.
• Create space for down time. The feeling of shared joy, laughter and feeling alive, boosts ojas. Make time each day for a dose.

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.

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!
