The final day of the ayurvedic wellness challenge went well and I am feelin’ good!
After a long run, breakfast started out like this:
7:30 a.m. (Breakfast):
-2 pieced of Udi’s gluten-free Cinnamon Raisin bread topped with Earth Balance butter.
- 1 apple
-1 cup of CCF (Cumin, Coriander, Fennel seed) tea.
At 10:30, I had an orange for a quick snack.
Around 12:00, I had lunch.
- 1 iced, unsweetened green tea (have you realized that these are my favorite?)
- Brown rice with carrots, sugar snap peas, pea shoots, mushrooms and broccoli.
It was a chilly day here in Pittsburgh so, by the time dinner rolled around, we were in the mood for something toasty.
7:00 p.m. (Dinner)
I let this cook in the crock pot all day and it was so wonderful to come home to. The perfect end to a chilly day.
Glasses of water= 8
The ayurvedic wellness plan/eating for my pitta dosha was really a great experience. As I mentioned, it really wasn’t about finding a healthy eating plan. For me, it was about exploring the foods that work well with my body type (pitta) and eliminating the one’s that do not. In this, I have a hope for a more balanced body/immune system and, hopefully, a result of that more balanced body will be stronger hair.
Just because I am done sharing my every day eating plan with you all, it does not mean that I am going to stop eating for my body/dosha type. I will continue to incorporate things that are settling for my body and will share them with you along the way.
A few things I wanted to look into in the next week:
–Rose Essential Oil: proven to be a calming oil for the Pitta Dosha, I can’t wait to bring some of this lovely scent into my house! I was searching around for some information about the other benefits of rose essential oil and was surprised to find a slew of goodness surrounding it. Read more about rose oil benefits here.
–Aloe Vera Juice: proven to reduce digestive inflammation for those of the Pitta Dosha. Read more about this excellent juice here.
Have a wonderful Thursday. Check in soon for some chat about a few new things I am looking into and some hair updates.
Peace and love.
