How Can Banana with Ghee & Cinnamon Make You Feel Great?
Soothing & Comforting
Bananas in sizzling ghee are heavy, hearty and ojas-building. They are ideal for autumn, when your body needs sweet, fatty foods to prepare for winter. As fall approaches, warm sweaters, richer foods, and cozy evenings offer comfort from the cooler temperatures and anxiety of a busy fall schedule.
The pastiness of banana (gooey quality on Joyful Belly) coats and soothes your gut, helping you to relax. Sugar and fats 'sweeten' your digestive tract, bringing comfort and ease. Cinnamon and ginger warm the gut, relaxing muscles that may be tense from the hustle and bustle. Spices help your body assimilate a fall diet rich in sweets and fats while keeping the lungs clear of Kapha mucus.
Feeling persistently hungry but need to take it easy on snacks? Bananas are a healthy way to keep your stomach satisfied for a few hours because they contain complex carbohydrates. This snack is a healthy way to honor and indulge your sweet cravings. The natural sweetness of the bananas and the fats in ghee also make this dish a perfect midday pick-me-up in lieu of harder-to-digest snacks that destroy your appetite and disrupt your digestive routine. You may need easy, nourishing options when your digestion is impaired from too much indulgence. Bananas with ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon is a simple recovery meal to give your digestion a rest.
