As the nights get darker and colder, taking us into the depths of the Vata or dry season, set into motion from Fall, it can be nice to withdraw into more times of introspection, mindfulness and enjoying what’s right in front of you. It’s also a great time to practice sacred eating.
According to Ayurveda, a calm, quiet atmosphere for eating helps to create food ‘sadhana’. Sadhana is the act of making anything sacred, and so food sadhana is ‘sacred eating’. Especially when you’re stressed, recalibrating, or feeling overwhelmed, food sadhana helps bring your attention back to the present moment.
And, because yummy things make the cold season more bearable, it’s nice to have a delicious breakfast to start off the morning sadhana practice.
And that brings us to these simple yet delicious Sweet Potato Pancakes!
Yes, Sweet Potatoes, an amazing twist on the original that’s perfect for a Fall morning, that’s better than any box mix.
This healthy breakfast is a flourless, gluten-free recipe and is appropriate to balance Vata and Pitta doshas. It’s also suitable for sensitive stomachs when spices like cinnamon and ginger are added.
What’s even better is that they are moist, sweet, and satisfying – especially great to enjoy, snuggled up by a morning fire!
