Āyurvedic Oats

Cooking fresh food is one of the most important ways we can nourish ourselves. And what is easier to make than porridge? It is an important teaching in Āyurveda, especially if we are cleansing and vulnerable to imbalances. Left over foods and meals that have been stored for long periods of time loose their 'prana' or life force. They also contribute to the build up of toxins in the body. 

 

Eating locally sourced produce can be one of the best things you can do for your immunity and overall wellbeing.

This is a favourite recipe of mine for breakfast. It is warming and can actually be eaten all year round (if we mix up the spices). This recipe however is specific to this time of the year.

Enjoy!

  • 1 dash turmeric, powder
