Date With Tahini
5 dates, pitted
1 ½ cups (non-homoganized or raw) cow, almond, or coconut milk warmed up
1 tbsp tahini
¼ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp cinnamon
Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
This shake is perfect for vata types because it warms their delicate body type and calms an overactive mind. Tahini is high in protein and rich in calcium, potassium, Vitamin B and iron. Cinnamon improves circulation, which tends to run low in vata types. And vanilla has a relaxing effect on the mind.
The ancient Indian science of Ayurveda classifies the seasons according to their predominant dosha: Vata, Pitta, or Kapha.
Late fall and winter are mostly Vata, specially in the northern hemisphere. Summer is a Pitta season as the sun is the strongest, the sun is associated with the fire of Pitta Dosha. Early spring is associated with Kapha Dosha, the dampness and heaviness of rain season goes with the damp and heavy qualities of Kapha dosha, Kapha is also present during late parts of our winter as the snow melts.
Each dosha tends to increase during its own season. This is particularly so for people who have the current seasonal dosha as their predominant dosha, i.e., Kapha predominant people tend to accumulate more Kapha in the winter and spring time. By following Ayurvedic winter remedies, we can avoid this accumulation.
