Cookies the Ayurvedic Way

Hi there! You doing ok this week?

It's holiday baking time and I'm sharing three cookie recipes that include some ayurvedic, ojas-building goodness.

You might be saying, "eating cookies isn't very ayurvedic of you, Julie" but actually, it is if done thoughtfully.

Here's how you can feel better about your indulgence:

  1. TASTE- the sweet taste pacifies vata dosha which tends to be high this time of year. In moderation, having some cookies made with high quality sweeteners like raw, organic sugar, maple syrup, honey or other natural sweetener that has not been processed is a great way to enjoy your treat.

  2. TIME-by eating cookies or sweets between the hours of 10am and 2pm (pitta time of day) ensures you have the most digestive fire to burn those calories. No gobbling cookies after dinner or late in the evening where those calories will contribute to weight gain.

  3. 80/20- The ayurvedic rule of 80/20 means 80% of the time do the best you can to follow ayurvedic protocols for optimal health, and 20% of the time be flexible.

Give these a try this season and post your results and reviews @clevelandayurveda.
