Drinks to cool down Pitta

According to Ayurveda, ice-cold foods and beverages disrupt the digestive power called Agni. Agni or digestive fire can be compared to burning logs. If we dump cold water over burning logs the fire goes out.

The same goes for our digestive process. If we ingest ice- cold foods and drinks then our digestive fires become weak. The body begins to work harder to digest and absorb nutrients and pitta or the metabolism gets out of balance. Irritability, intolerance, loose bowel, aggressive behavior or heart burn are all indications that pitta has become out of balance. Ice-cold drinks are a quick fix to cool off and a challenging habit to break. The ancient knowledge of Ayurveda provides simple solutions to maintain balance during the hot summer without causing side-effects.

Living cooking recipe Fennel- roasted eggplant.

This recipe is sensual, easy and fast. It is good for pittas, pitta-vattas, pitta-kapha, kapha-vattas, and kapha-pittas. Enjoy it !
