Kapha Reducing Millet Kichadi. This is a classic recipe that Mother Maya has devised as an energising meal for the Kapha Dosha. She tells us that it is light, reducing and invigorating in nature.
Warm Green Bean & Cumin Salad. This is a simple favourite and great for a quick lunch, I eat a bowl of this alone, but you can serve it on a bed of millet or buckwheat as a savoury lunch bowl. The roasted almonds are delicious on this dish and great for the Kapha diet.

Kapha Reducing Essential Oils by Beverley
Therapeutic Facial Steam for Kapha. Kapha skin is thick, pale and moist, it's cold and soft to touch and it keeps its youthful appearance longer than other types. Kapha is often called the dosha with the moon like face. When Kapha is out of balance skin becomes dull, sluggish and congested with even larger pores that attract dirt and oil creating blackheads and other pus related spots and cysts. Kapha skin visibly has over oily skin that can be thick and greasy.
The Amazing Energy Kale with Chickpeas. Kale is so filled with goodness it's hard to believe. This is what Ayurveda says about Kale. Kale is a blood cleanser and one of the best cancer-fighting vegetables. Rich in vitamin A, C, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, magnesium, iron, sulfur, sodium, potassium, and chlorophyll.
Body Brushing & Oelation is a must . Before your morning shower give your body a dry brush with a soft body brush. Best to use natural bristles if possible. This process will stimulate the bodies lymphatic process and encourage the removal of toxins that will begin to leave the body.
Dry body brushing has many health benefits. Our skin is the body’s largest organ, it absorbs anything you put on and also plays a critical role in eliminating toxins.
Kapha Reducing Soup. All you need to do if you are experiencing some hot Pitta symptoms is to reduce or remove the ingredients below that have a star * next to them.

Symptoms of Kapha Mucus & Another Tea. The higher the Kapha the more likely you will experience extra phlegm the horrid thick mucus as your body responds to the radical changes in the weather.
Kapha Breakfast a bowl of beautiful fresh fruit. Be adventurous with your choice of fruit, but follow these guidelines. Kapha Fruits, what to eat and what not to eat
Spinach and Onions Immune Building Soup.Such a simple soup but absolutely full of really good purifying ingredients. This is one to have to build the immune system with its green irons and anti-bacteria onion family.
Kapha Purifying Ayurveda Super Veg Medley. This recipe has been adapted for this Kapha 5 Day Reducing programme. This is one of my favorites, even though I say this, I love all the soups that I make, if I don't like them, I do not include them.
Ayurveda Buckwheat Pancake with Fruit or Veg. I love to use different flours when cooking, I have chosen buckwheat for this recipe. On the Kapha Reducing Diet make sure you follow the Kapha adapted ingredients.
Pomegranate and Bulgar Bowl. This is a favourite dish of mine, it's so light and yet filling. And really simple to make. You could make this at work for lunch all you need is a kettle and all the other ingredients can be prepared beforehand.
Pomegranate, Roasted Almonds and Grilled Peaches. This is a simply gorgeous dish and not one that you would expect to eat for Kapha, but its a treat and my take on the ingredients. If you are willing to understand the flavours and the way that you can change the constitution of food sources we can use in minor ways some foods that we would otherwise eat. So enjoy this and keep your plate portions smallish, this will serve 2 or three and a lovely sweet
Further Kapha Reducing Info & Tea with Cloves & Fenugreek. Let's clear something up, Kapha constitution is made up of the elements of Water & Earth and this means that when we add TOO much water particularly cold water we can add to the Kapha problems.
