Hold the Ice!

Hold the Ice!

Ayurveda is all about your digestive fires and ice is not your friend.

Think of your digestive fires as a bonfire you are going to cook your food on but you poured water on it first and now the heat of the fire needed to cook the food is gone. Yep – same happens when we drink our beverages with ice!

Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper

1 box frozen peas defrosted (or fresh)
½ cup fresh grated parmesan

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add Barley and leeks and cook until it begins to soften about 5 to 7 minutes.

Curried Apple and Celery Soup ~

Curried Apple and Celery Soup ~

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves the following spring soup recipe, so yummy and it’s good for your digestion too!

Curried Apple and Celery Soup Recipe

Ingredients
(4 servings)
2 Stalks Celery, roughly chopped
2 Green Apples, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 cup Milk
1/2-cup Vegetable stock, or water
1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
Salt and Pepper, to taste

To begin making the Apple Celery Soup, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add in the chopped celery root and the apples.

Sprinkle some salt and sauté until the celery and the apple turn a little soft.

Keep the saucepan partially covered so the steam that gets generated helps them to cook faster.

Stir in the remaining ingredients and add it to the blender. If you don’t have a blender that can’t take in heat, then wait for the mixture to cool before you can blend it.

Blend the apple celery soup mixture in the blender until smooth.

Pour the soup back into the saucepan and check for the salt and pepper levels. Adjust to suit your taste.

When you are ready to serve the soup, give the soup a quick boil

Enjoy!

Cilantro Mint Chutney ~

Cilantro Mint Chutney is Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC favorite spring time go to!

Spring is know as Kapha season through the lens of Ayurveda and we need to help ourselves by eating foods that will help lift the fog, dampness and break up mucus.

Cilantro calms our immune sensitivity to pollen. It is hypoallergenic and cools the liver.

Mint refreshes the mind, disperses dullness and lifts the fog. It breaks up mucus and fluid stagnation in the lungs, throat and sinuses. Mint and cilantro are both diuretics with the potential to drain excess water via the urinary tract. Raw onions have a cleansing effect on the liver and a laxative effect in the GI. Wild onions, a common weed, are a great addition to the spring time menu.

On the right path?

On the right path?

Does the path you’re on feel right?

A good indiction that something is “wrong” in your life or the path is not leading you in the “right” direction would be feeling fearful, depressed or pessimistic.

When you’re on the “right” path you will know as you will feel enthusiastic, optimistic or content. Doing what you need to do, being who you really are brings out the best in us all.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to sit with your thoughts, feel them, see them and most importantly “hear” them.

New Moon = New Beginnings

New Moon = New Beginnings

Todays new moon is a gift of new beginnings! It’s a shift to call in what you want to manifest in your life. Activate what you want by calling it into your life.

Here’s a few ways to do just that:

• Clear your Energy to get centered ~ Take a salt bath or space clear your energy with sage, a feather or a flame.
• Set Your Intentions ~ declare to the new moon what your vision is ~ declare it boldly and with courage. Write them down and then speaking them loudly ~ by physically speaking them you symbolize your intention to manifest your goals.
Then:
• Express Gratitude ~ from your heart and your soul believe that this IS granted to you and express gratitude.
• Act ~ Take those steps forward toward your goal daily. You will be surprised by what transpires between now and the next Full Moon ~ a time of manifestation.
