Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows most spices enhance digestion,
and that’s one of the reasons spices are revered in Ayurvedic cuisine. Not only do they help enhance digestion, but they also help remove accumulated ama (toxins), so they are valuable additions to your daily diet.
Turmeric, cumin, coriander, fennel, mint, black pepper, dried powdered ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne are among the Ayurvedic spices that enhance digestion and metabolism, cleanse ama (toxins) from the body and help prevent digestive distress such as gas and bloating.
One of our favorite breakfast recipes using a few of the above spices…
Nutty Quick Oats
1 cup quick oats, unsalted
1 tablespoon raisins, unsweetened
1 tablespoon dried, fruit-sweetened cranberries, chopped
1 tablespoon coconut, shredded, unsweetened
2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1 1/2 cups water, boiled
1 teaspoon raw honey
3 tablespoons plain yogurt, unsweetened (optional)
In a serving bowl combine the Oates, raisins, cranberries, coconut, almonds, cinnamon and cardamom. Add the boiling water to desired consistency and stir; let sit for 1 minute. The oats will absorb the water and become a thick porridge consistency. Adjust the water until you achieve the consistency you desire. *Top with the yogurt and honey (optional)
