|Home | Learn Ayurveda | Meal Times|
The morning is the best time for prayer and spiritual practice. An austere meal complements developing spiritual awareness. Vata people should include simple proteins such as 10 almonds with their breakfast. Eat the biggest meal of the day at lunchtime when agni is strongest. Finally, by 3pm our organs are as tired as we feel after a long day's work. Dinner should include gentle foods only. Kapha should never eat heavy foods after sunset. Generally, eat early enough to ensure food will completely digest before sleep. Baby the digestive tract after 8pm. Overnight, undigested food becomes stagnant blood provoking Kapha and mucous.
When I wake up in the morning I cook all three meals at the same time. First, I start a soup. Next, I start a pot of rice. Next, I cook my oatmeal or fry an egg for breakfast. The rest of my day is kitchen free. This method of cooking is fast, easy, and healthy.
