Forget cooling off! Calm down and get cozy instead!

 When Autumn meets Winter

Ayurveda and Spices: Coriander

 Coriander is a delicious spice with many healing benefits. It makes a great household remedy for pitta disorders, in particular those which affect the digestive or urinary systems. Those with a pitta nature or imbalance tend to have overheated digestion, such as heartburn and acid indigestion, and most digestive spices are too heating for pitta. But not coriander!

Ayurveda and Spices: Ginger, “The Universal Medicine”

 Many herbalists would say that if you only keep one medicinal herb on hand, it should be ginger. Ginger is considered “the universal medicine” because it offers benefits for everyone and most every disease, especially vata disorders. 

Ayurveda and Spices: The Amazing Turmeric

 Are you including turmeric in your daily diet? If not, you certainly should be! Turmeric has a long list of health benefits. It targets all tissues and many bodily systems including the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and female reproductive systems.

Ayurvedic Recipes: Chocolate Chia Pudding

 Chocolate Chia Pudding is as tasty as it is nourishing! Be sure and make it about 11 hours before serving so the chia seeds have time to expand.

Ayurvedic Recipe: Immune-Boosting Ginger & Turmeric Tea

 This is a great tea for helping to prevent colds. Ginger is warming, and both ginger and turmeric have anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is a natural antibiotic. The lemon juice cleanses toxins, purifies the blood, and increases digestive fire (agni). Plus it’s delicious!
