    The Perfect Late Summer Ayurveda Meal, According To Your Dosha

    The Ayurveda Experience August 16, 2017

    Say you were at an imaginary scrumptious yet simple late summer Ayurveda buffet in the middle of an August day. It’s hot outside, yet the rains can be chilly. You’re a Vata. How do you lay out your plate of food?

    It’s hot; you’re sweating profusely. You’ve got a Pitta constitution. What do you choose to put on your plate? It’s hot. You’re a Kapha who only eats two meals a day. That plate of food is precious. What do you put on it?

    The buffet includes dal (legumes/protein), rice (carbs), subji (spiced veggies), condiments and a salad bar. It being an Indian establishment, you have the chance to come back for a wholesome rice pudding or mango custard if you like. You want to keep your doshas balanced. What would you choose?

    A healthy Ayurvedic meal includes all six tastes of sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent.

     

    Balanced Vata Plate

    The balanced Vata plate could look like this: 20% dal, 30% rice, 20% subji, 5% cooked cilantro chutney, 10% spiced yogurt raita. The last 15% is invested on the Indian rice pudding.

    Healing tastes for Vata: sweet 40% (including carbs), sour 15%, salty 15%, pungent 15%, bitter 10 %, astringent 5%
