Veggies for your Dosha

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC
shares our favorite Thanksgiving Recipes for your Dosha….

These simple roasted veggie recipes make perfect Thanksgiving side dishes for each dosha. Roasting vegetables brings out the sweetness in veggies and is great for the holiday season. The Vata and Pitta recipes feature sweet veggies, while the kapha recipes features bitter and astringent roasted veggies.

Vata – Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Mashed sweet potatoes are a perfect Thanksgiving dish for Vata. Wash 4 or 5 medium sweet potatoes, prick the skins with a fork a couple times, and roast them at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes, depending on the size. They should be nice and soft. Mash them up with two tablespoons of ghee or for a yummy vegan variation, two tablespoons of coconut, walnut or hazelnut oil. Add the juice of half a small orange, a half a teaspoon each of ginger and cinnamon powder, and a pinch each of salt, powdered clove, nutmeg, and allspice.

Pitta – Roasted Fennel
Fennel is great for pitta types. Start with two whole bunches. Chop off the tops and cut the stalks into bite-sized pieces. Toss with around two tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt, spread on a cookie sheet or in a roasting pan, and roast at 350 for 30 minutes. Place in a bowl, squeeze the juice of a half lemon over it, and give it a good toss. Place the fennel on a platter and dot small pieces of goat cheese over it.

Kapha – Roasted Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts
Kapha types should roast white potatoes and brussel sprouts. Start with around two pounds each of potatoes and sprouts. Wash the veggies well, and cut off the stem end of the brussel sprouts and remove any tough outer leaves. Mince three or four cloves of garlic, and place all of it in a roasting pan. Toss with one tablespoon of sunflower oil, a teaspoon of dried rosemary add a small pinch of salt and a few generous grinds of black pepper. Roast at 400 for 30-40 minutes.

Sore throat? Dry cough?

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC on the common Sore Throat and dry cough through the lens of #Ayurveda:

One of the simplest and most effective remedies for managing a sore throat is gargling. Therefore, consider gargling with:

1 cup of hot water [not too hot that it burns] mixed with
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and
1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Or

THROAT-SOOTHING HERBAL TEA:
Ginger [2 parts]-
Cinnamon [2 parts]
Licorice [3 parts]
Honey (organic)

Honey is a natural home remedy for a dry cough, as it soothes the irritated tissue lining at the back of the throat. Depending on the severity of the cough, you can take a tablespoon of honey one to three times a day.

Commitment: Attend every session and begin a daily meditation practice, even if it’s for just 10 minutes. You can do this!!
Alida will be using a text called The Relaxed Mindby one of her favorite teachers, Dza Kilung Rinpoche. You can find the text online, and it’s helpful to have it, but not necessary.

The first class begins with our posture – aligning body and mind into a relaxed yet upright and dignified posture. Then, step by step, week by week, we will explore the nature of thoughts and develop the awareness to manage that squirrelly mind!

Having the support of a group is essential to beginning a new habit, as is regular practice. We are limiting it to 10 people so that you have individual guidance and support, yet some good company on this new adventure.
