Asparagus Risotto ~

Love asparagus?  Here is one of Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC favorite.  Let us know what you think…

Traditonal risotto is made using arborio rice, which is white and glutinous and produces a very creamy rice dish. The trick to making a creamy and tasty brown rice risotto is to use short grain rice and lots of veggie stock.

3/4 cup short grain brown rice
2 cups vegetable or mushroom stock
1 Tbsp each butter (or ghee) and olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried basil
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and chopped
black pepper
grated parmesan or reggiano cheese

In a medium, heavy pot, heat the butter (or ghee) and olive oil.  Add onions, garlic and red pepper flakes, sauteeing until soft. Stir in rice, basil and half the stock. Let simmer covered on medium for 20 minutes, then add remaining stock plus asparagus. Stir well, cover, and let cook until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is creamy (not firm or dry), about another half hour. If needed, cook in another 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of stock to reach the right consistency. Stir in parmesan to taste and grind in some black pepper. Serves 2.

NOTE: Ayurvedically, cheese is not recommended as it is difficult to digest, but it also purports that black pepper helps make it more digestible.

  • We make our own Ghee and it’s for sale – best out there.

FOR INDIVIDUAL DOSHAS
Great for all doshas. Pittas, omit or minimize garlic, dried basil, and red pepper flakes; Kaphas, omit or reduce butter and oil to 1 tsp each.

To Do List ~

To Do List ~

Help! Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I can’t get organized….

So how can we overcome this to make our days productive?

Between the hours of 2pm and 6pm, #VATA energy is at its highest. Vata stimulates elimination, movement, speech, enthusiasm, creativity, breathing and nervous system functioning. Researchers have found that mind-body coordination (dexterity) is at its greatest about 4pm and that muscle strength is at its weakest at this time. This is why in the afternoon it is a good time to do your mental work.

The afternoon is a great time to get through a task list bullet point by bullet point.

So be easy on yourself this holiday season and go slow as now you know you will pick up speed and be your most productive this afternoon

October, Ayurveda Awareness Month

October, Ayurveda Awareness Month

Ayurveda is a natural system of health and wellbeing and the sister-science to yoga. It originated in India thousands of years ago.

As a Complementary and Alternative Medicine Ayurveda can support your health needs in various ways. Ayurveda uses diet, herbal remedies, lifestyle tools and body therapies to establish health in body and mind.

Like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is based on the five elements of nature. They are earth, air, fire, water and ether. According to Ayurveda, these elements are present in our environment around us as well as within us.

Good health is a state of balance of these five elements. Maintaining balance is the key and that involves many things. Your diet, lifestyle, relationships and habitat are all factors which can affect your natural state of balance. If you know your body type you can create a healthy lifestyle and greater well being.

Discover Your Body Type
In Ayurveda the five elements are organized into three fundamental principles called doshas. The three doshas are vata dosha, pitta dosha and kapha dosha. Each of us are composed of some combination of these three doshas.

Doshas govern the various processes of the body and mind. They create your uniqueness. With some knowledge of the doshas you can begin to track your state of health or your level of balance. Maintain a balance of the doshas to maintain health and prevent future illness from occurring.

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.
