Full Moon organic Ghee

t’s that time again and YES we did make our FULL MOON GHEE! (Auspicious Ghee)

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC Organic Ghee! Was made on the full moon and ready to pick up or be shipped, while supplies last!

Everything around us has an effect on something within us. The frequency of the moon affects the mind and influences our feelings, emotions, and desires. The practice of making Ghee on a full moon is considered auspicious because the moon is thought to influence “Soma” the source of nourishment, nectar, and bliss. Soma is a Sanskrit term which is derived from the root word “su” which means to energize, stimulate, expand and grow.

Think of Ghee as liquefied sunlight!

Ghee is the most refined end product of milk and one should consider using in place of butter. Because the milk solids have been removed, it has a higher smoking point than butter.

Through the lens of #Ayurveda here are a few benefits of incorporating Ghee into your diet:

Lactose Friendly
Dosen’t spoil easily
Promotes flexibility
Rich in vitamins
Healthy digestive tract
Lowers Cholesterol
Higher smoking point
Weight loss

 

Spring allergies

Ayurveda Wellness Healing post on allergies last week focused on the Kapha reducing diet to control allergies – today let’s focus on what we can add to our diets to help with the spring allergies that came out in full force this weekend in the Northeast…

1. Baked, Broiled or grilled foods, and hot spices. These foods increase warmth, light, and dry qualities

2. Fruits like cherries, berries, and pomegranate.

Here are couple of herbal tea recipes to help jump-start your spring:

Ginger tea
1 glass warm water
1 T honey
1⁄2 T fresh lime or lemon
1/8 t fresh grated ginger.
Mix well and enjoy this great morning beverage.

Cinnamon Ginger tea
1 glass water
1 stick of cinnamon
3-4 cloves
1⁄4 T fresh grated ginger
1 T honey
Boil all ingredients for 2-3 minutes; then add 1T honey and enjoy.

Kitchari

Kitchari

So, what’s kitchari and what does it have to do with Ayurveda and, more importantly, you?

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.

One bag of Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC  kitchari makes 6 servings!

*Flat shipping rate of $5…whether you purchase 1 bag or 6!
