ayurvedic perspective

Oats have a slimy quality helping expectoration in Kapha when combined with spices. The slimy quality also helps soften the GI tract in Vata.

Be careful with granola bars! Dry oats in any form absorbs moisture from the GI tract, aggravating Vata if there is a lack of adequate secretions from the intestines. Remedy by alternate sips of water and chewing well.

buying & preparation
Steel cut oats give the best flavor but take over 40 minutes to cook. Rolled oats are a nice compromise but stay away from instant oats. I find they lack prana and taste like paper, making me suspicious that the vitamins have degraded.

As Kapha-Pitta can i eat oat porridge cooked in yogurt with black pepper and ginger? thanks...

Basic staple in traditional karelian cooking balances and soothes my sensitive and volatile vata-pitta constitution while having great nutritional value and sophisticated smooth taste. I eat oat porridge with ayurvedic spices for breakfast almost daily. Recommended for people with sensitive stomach.

Kindly illustrate all Ayurvedic Properties ( like Rasa, Veerya, Vipaak etc.) of oats / oatmeal.
- Chandrakant, 01-05-16 (Reply)
Oats have a sweet rasa, a cooling virya and a sweet vipak. Cooked oats are heavy and gooey whereas dry oats are dry and rough.
