Super Summer Salads22nd of June 2019

Simple Easy Tabbouleh Salad

I love this salad and I always like to eat it warm. Ayurveda has a lot to say about cold food on the digestive system and it is really important to be aware of this. Cool food dampens the Agni, the fire in the belly and can disrupt the digestive system. So even if you eat this at room temperature it's better than coming out of the fridge.

Pears are sattvic as is fennel served with fluffy basmati rice and crunchy walnuts with a zing of feta cheese, it really is great as a summer meal.

Super Benefits of Sprouted Beans

There are lots of different opinions on sprouting beans in the Ayurveda world. Heres my take on it, sprouted beans are a live food, so full of living goodness. Although some say that the ancient texts do not advocate eating bean sprouts because they are a raw food, there are many that do say to include them in your diet. I honestly think that since Ayurveda is over 7000 yrs old we or should I say I can safely say that somethings can be adapted and improved.
