  • How do you eat? Ayurveda’s ancient science teaches us that how you eat is more important than what you eat.

Here are some healthy eating practices:

Keep a regular eating schedule with at least 3-6 hours between meals without snacking to allow digestion to complete and Agni to kindle.

Eat mindfully, in a sattvic environment with no phone, computer or TV. Eat in silence or with those you love with light and positive conversation.

Eat with a calm mind and heart. Pray, say a mantra and bless the meal and all the hands that brought it to you.

Use your senses; look, feel, smell your food before you eat.

When you’re cooking, take in the aromas and sounds but avoid eating while you’re cooking - tasting food begins digestion and will inhibit digestion of the actual meal itself.

Chew well and slowly and wait for the burp - a small burp means you’re done which is about 75 % full.

Before you move on to your next activity, take a few breaths, acknowledge how you feel and walk away feeling satisfied. Perhaps take a short walk in nature.

Creating a relationship with our food supports health and wellness and prevents dis-ease - body, mind, spirit. 🙏🏻 Try these out and let me know how you feel!!

  • Fall is officially here - even though it doesn’t feel like it quite yet in Dallas! We are ready and welcome the Fall with open arms! 🍂
.
As the leaves start to fall and the air becomes cool and dry, so does our body. The Vata dosha brings the qualities of air and ether (space)
.
Ayurveda is a science that thrives on prevention and during the airy Vata season, I like to make sure my daily dinacharya, or daily practices include using my Neti Pot and Nasya oil!
.
@barakaneti Neti Pot and Neti salt are my favorite to use! They hand make all their pots in small batches and are absolutely beautiful! Their salt is super fine and infused with essential oils to prevent cold and flu symptoms. Their quality salt is specialize with a specific type of iodine salt so you can remove nasal gunk without any burning sensations or pain
.
After Neti Pot, I recommend applying Nasya oil in each nostril to protect and lubricate your nasal passages. Our Nasya oil is a must for every day use even if you are not doing Neti. It’s also a great practice to support keeping our mind calm. Just apply a drop of Nasya oil into each nostril to protect you against pollens, pollutants, viruses and stress! A must have for this upcoming season!! 🍁

  • Do you embrace the qualities of the Pitta Dosha?
.
The Pitta Dosha holds the energy of the fire 🔥 and water 💦 elements and while its principal quality is heat, it is also light, slightly oily, sharp, and unstable
.
Pitta is the force responsible for the strength of our intellect and governs the digestion, absorption, assimilation and metabolism of any sensory impression
.
If you have a primarily Pitta constitution, you’re more courageous, ambitious, goal-oriented, productive, and a natural leader with good public speaking skills, you are naturally friendly and a go-getter
.
When the qualities of pitta rise in excess, they are prone to acne, loose stools, inflammation, anger, sharpness, resentment, criticism, and jealousy
.
If Pitta predominates in your constitution or during the pitta season, you will find benefit with cooler foods, spending more time in nature, not over-scheduling yourself, going to bed by 10pm (no working late) and taking time to appreciate the joys of life!

  • I have been feeling all the vibes from this full harvest moon! And, I’m not just talking about today. I mean, I’ve been FEELING the feels for weeks.

Unexplainable emotions, unintentional reflecting in ways I’ve never experienced. I’ve just been going with it - keeping my distance from media & friends, pulling back and (trying) to sit still, releasing attachment to why and what - that’s so hard for this pitta type-a gal!

Yesterday, I had a 45 min drive and there it came! I literally cried the entire way. I don’t know why and I don’t care.

What I do know from my astrology sisters, is that this new harvest moon in Pisces ♓️ is full of abundant, flowing, feminine, and emotional energy! And GUESS what!? I AM Pisces!

This is the last major luminary of the summer season, so there
  • With school back in session and the weather cooling down, our bodies start feeling the change - in a positive way! 👏🏻 but sometimes the excess heat of the summer leaves us feeling sharp, overworked and burnt out and then before you know it, the holidays will be around the corner! ❤️ We all can use support through healthy practices such as right diet, exercise, yoga, meditation, breathing techniques and herbs to keep our mind calm, clear and peaceful! 🌱
I’ve been using herbs as medicine for years and my love for herbs has led me to create this formula
🌱
After taking this tincture for a few days, I am happy to say, I have felt the effects much faster than the usual churna or powdered formulas I’ve made
🌱
Adaptogens are a mixture of healing herbs that work together to counteract the effects of stress in the body. The herbs are infused in vodka and get into our blood stream faster, giving you an immediate adjustment on your mood and mental well-being
🌱
Our tinctures are infused in small batches to ensure you get the most out of each organic herb. Stop by the office or comment below to get yours!
🌱
Tag a friend you think will benefit from this tincture and help guide them into a more natural, holistic way of living!

  • When I first began studying Ayurveda, I would sit at the kitchen table every Sunday and plan what my boyfriend (now husband) would eat for the week.

At that time, the cookbooks were very traditional and I often found it difficult to find some of the more traditional spices.

The benefits of meal planning are many and you certainly don’t have to eat a diet of only traditional Indian food to live an ayurvedic lifestyle (although, these are my favorite)! Because I knew the importance of using spices to heal my body, I learned to play with the core spices of cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger, saffron and fennel and omitted spices I didn’t have.

Taking time over the weekend to plan meals, shop, prep and cook ahead can make your upcoming week a lot easier. It’s a practice of self-care that shouldn’t be dismissed or left to a restaurant. It will give you more control over knowing what ingredients you’re putting into your body, limits portion sizes, your food will go further, you’ll get more for your money, and you’ll be healthier!

Here’s one of my favorite easy, breezy recipes Roasted Beet, Quinoa, and arugula salad!
