Warming Oat, Chocolate and Banana Breakfast

One common combination that can challenge our digestive capabilities is yogurt and fruit. This pairing can impair the digestive fire and create ama. Ayurveda tells us that mixing yoghurt with fruit is challenging to our digestive system and should really be eaten separately, of course, we now have the advantage of non-dairy yoghurt which is less problematic.

Spelt and Herb Flatbread

You can just eat them on their own as the masala mix and fresh herbs make this recipe. Spelt is pungent, heating, light and dry, so it has an effect on all doshas, its great for Kapha, ok for Pitta and ok for Vata in smaller quantities.

Roasted Red Pepper & Cauli Bowl

I made this today from a bunch of leftovers, Ayurveda sees leftovers as detrimental to our digestive system, but I think that with our fridges, life is less problematic, regarding this. What Ayurveda refers to is cooked leftovers, there is very little life left in the food and if we reheat there are fewer enzymes and more opportunity for bacteria.

Really Healthy Pizza

Lots of people like pizzas but they are not very healthy, this one has more than enough of great ingredients to make it healthy and easy on the waistline. Using a selection of different flours/grains gives it extra nutrition. You can make the pizza topping to suit your taste, but remember to go easy on the cheese as this defeats the object of eating healthy, so a little feta goes a long way for taste.

Light Millet Porridge for Breakfast

Millets energetics are sweet, astringent, dry, light and hot, so it's not really a good idea to eat this during hot mid summer days. But when I was staying in a log cabin in the high of summer the mornings were really cold, I welcomed this now and again. eat it wisely.

Tofu & Veg Muffin/Bun/Toast Filling/Spread

There is such a lot of controversy about tofu, I'm going to do a full bog on it soon. But for the time being tofu energetics are considered to be dry, cold and heavy with an astringent taste. So taking this into account its fine for Vata and Pitta but not for Kapha.

Easy No Flour, Flour Mix

When I posted my healthy pizza on FaceBook lots of people asked me about the pizza base. This is what I use for lots of recipes, I use an egg that comes from a free-range farm, but I'm sure that vegans will have their favourite substitute.

Pesto Made with Spinach

The benefits of spinach are many. I really like using different leaves for making pesto, this one uses the abundant spinach leaves that are full of great benefits. I personally love this as a spread on toasted sourdough bread and topped with avocado and cherry tomatoes.
