Breakfast Ideas

Ayurveda believes that understanding the individual is the key to finding a truly balanced diet.

It places emphasis on making sure each dish is cooked and spiced in a way to achieve maximum digestibility, as well as superb taste and food value.

Breakfast Time

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.

Breakfast Ideas

Spicy Porridge

  • 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.

Cooked Muesli

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.

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.
