Cooked spiced grains provide a truly nourishing and grounding start to the day, especially for Vata and Pitta.
Kapha may not have an appetite for breakfast until mid morning.
- 2/3 cup oats (or grain suited to your constitution)
- 2 cups water
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ cup raisins
- 1 cardamom pod
- ¼ tsp cinnamon, nutmeg or clove
- 1/8 tsp ginger
Put all ingredients in saucepan. Once it has come to the boil reduce and cook on low heat until oats are done. Can be served with ghee, coconut oil or honey. A great start to a cold morning.
Dry fry ½ cup of natural muesli in 2 tsp ghee for 2-3 minutes. Add a little cinnamon and water and cover pot; let it cook for few mins in the water until it has slightly mushy porridge like consistency. This can be eaten alongside stewed fruit.
Stew chopped and peeled apples and pears, some raisins and figs in a little water. Add a few pinches of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and ginger and cook until fruit is soft.
