Customize According To Your Dosha
Vata – This is a great one for you. Warming spices and grounding seeds suit you well. For the spice of your choice, choose vata-soothing spices like: allspice, anise, basil, black pepper, caraway, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, ginger, mustard, oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, saffron, savory, tarragon, thyme, or turmeric. Dates should not be too drying for you, as they are well-blended with liquids. Blend this for longer in the Vitamix for a warm dip. Make sure to serve with carrots, beets, rutabaga, and parsnips to increase grounding energy.
Pitta – You will love this one. Be careful with the heat from the habanero…it may be too much. If so, reduce or omit. For the spice of your choice, choose pitta-soothing spices like basil, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, fresh ginger, parsley, saffron, tarragon, or turmeric. Enjoy with cooling cucumber, cabbage, bell peppers, and lettuces.
Kapha – This one rocks for you! It’s heating and stimulating. Enjoy with lots of veggies. Increase the spices, garlic, and onions to take it up a notch. For the spice of your choice, choose kapha-calming spices like: allspice, anise, basil, black pepper, caraway, cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin, dill fennel, fenugreek, ginger, hing, mustard, oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, saffron, savory, tarragon, thyme, or turmeric. You may want to reduce the hemp seeds to 1 tbsp to lower the fat content, if weight management is a concern.
