Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The healing of mind, body and spirit that Ayurveda offers comes from constantly balancing what we take in and what we expel out. Our food, drink, emotions and environment all form what is know as ahara. Many times, toxins are carried along with ahara and create ama in the body. Ayurveda offers guidance on how to use food as medicine to detoxify the body on a daily basis. In Dr. John Douillard's Gaiam video, he discusses how different foods and rasas (tastes) will help purify the body and remove ama to restore balance. Using an Ayurvedic approach provides life-long tools to keeping our body clear of toxins with a healthy lymphatic system and alkaline body. Enjoy!

Holistic Nutrition


 

Editor’s Note: This is a really great light soup that makes a great lunch when paired with a salad, or for a heartier meal pair a stir-fry of seasonal vegetables.  The miso here is made from chickpeas and although it is just typically used as a flavoring agent, it has quite a nutrient profile.  It contains a substantial amount of protein in a relatively small amount and because it is fermented with a fungus that can produce vitamin B12, it is one of very few vegan sources of that vitamin. It also provides tryptophan, an amino acid essential for the production of serotonin with in the body, diets high in this amino acid have been associated with lower levels of depression...
