AYURVEDA and HOW TO EAT FOR YOUR DOSHA

AYURVEDA,  which comes from the ancient Vedic texts, is indeed a 5,000-year-old medical philosophy and practice.

Furthermore, there are three Doshas in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Consequently, Ayurveda proposes that we each have a dominant dosha that’s unwavering from birth, and ideally an equal balance between the other two. When the doshas are balanced, we are healthy; therefore if unbalanced, we develop the disease.

Of course, we have here 6 Ayurveda recipes and How to Eat for your Dosha.

Dosha: Vata (Air and Space)

Vatas tend to be more spacey, anxious, with active minds. They also speak quickly and are likely to have joints that crack. Vata influences the movement of thoughts, feelings, prana flows, nerve impulses, and fluids in the body.

Below are 2 recipes for Vata:

Ayurveda smoked aubergine soup and makai paneer ki burjhi

Smoked Aubergine Soup The smoky eggplant and bright lime juice balance each other perfectly in this simple, warming soup yet so tasty.

Makai Paneer Ki Burjhi   A very versatile and unique sauteed Indian cheese dish and this can be best for breakfast, lunch or dinner.


Dosha: Pitta (Fire and Little Water)

Pittas literally have more fire in them than other types. They have better appetites and better digestion. They can withstand the cold better, as they are hotter-headed. Since Pittas have strong and efficient digestion, they can generally eat just about everything.

Below are 2 recipes for Pitta:

Ayurveda dal shorba and vegetable curry

 

Dal Shorba Very comforting soup and is perfect on a chilly fall afternoon. Split red lentils, which don’t need soaking, but be sure to read the directions on the package.

Vegetable Curry This vegetable curry has incredible flavor because of the spices, and it comes together in about 30 minutes. Serve over rice or with naan to soak up the juices.


Dosha: Kapha (Earth and Water)

Kaphas tend to have heavier, earthier bodies than other types, and tend to store watery substances like fluids and fat more readily. They are naturally calm and attached.

Below are 2 Recipes for Kapha:

Brown rice khichdi and lemon coriander soup 1

Brown Rice Khichdi These brown rice and lentils pack a serious nutritional punch and the addition of veggies, spices, ginger and cilantro make this so healthy that the whole family will happily chow down on.

Lemon Coriander Soup This bright, healthy and clean soup makes a perfect mid-day snack or light meal and great for everyone.
