Healthy eating feels like a luxury when you're on the go. The drive-thru can be a tempting option when you are running around town with a hungry belly. Fortunately, there are satisfying and healthy ways to nourish yourself when life gets busy. This month I will be adding some helpful tips on this blog. But let's begin with this tasty smoothie.
Normally in Ayurveda smoothies and cold foods are not recommended for Vata and Kapha types but since we are in the Pitta season it is safe to assume this balancing recipe will be beneficial for all types of doshas.
One of the most important things to remember in making smoothies is not to combine too many ingredients and definitely not to combine the "incompatible foods". These foods include mixing of any kind of fruits with veggies. So stay clear with using one or another and only one or two main ingredients mixed with a good source of fat like coconut oil or almond butter (for the summer is great) or ghee (for all doshas and all seasons).
