Kitcharee for Digestive Health
Kitcharee is a traditional rice and mung dal soup or stew in Ayurvedic cooking most often used as an easy to digest meal during cleanses. The base of rice and mung dal is not only gentle on the GI tract, it is nourishing and offers a complete protein. Explore how easy, satisfying and fun it is to make kitcharee with your favourite seasonal ingredients.
Mung Bean Sprouts
The light and bitter taste of sprouts are ideal for helping to relieve the toxicity of heavy stagnation and the excess of oily heat. Making your own sprouts is easy, cost-effective and convenient – giving you lots of options for a fresh burst of flavor and the vitality of natural purification.
Churnas (spice mixes) help to balance a meal and aid with digestion. Only a light sprinkling is needed to add a healthy bit of zest to a meal. Churnas can be placed on the table for use as desired or can be used to flavor rice or grain dishes, the base for kitcharee and dals, seasoning for homemade French fries and scrambled eggs. Churnas make a wonderful gift…
Sunshine Milk can be served on its own or with quickbreads (muffins, loafs etc) for a snack or light meal.
Lassi (pronounced “LAH-see”) is fresh yogurt blended with room-temperature water. Yogurt by itself is heavy and can clog the channels of the digestive and elimination systems (especially if taken cold or mixed with fruit).
Herb and Ginger Yogurt Dressing
Yogurt is a super-food, high in calcium and protein that taken in moderation provides natural probiotics to help sustain the sound flora and fauna of your digestive tract. And rather than the more intense qualities of other ferments, it has a more gentle, slightly cooling and nourishing quality, ideal to help alleviate toxic heat in the liver and small intestine.
