Written by John Immel,
To provide stable nutrition throughout the day, Vata should make sure to include protein in their morning meal. An ideal breakfast for Vata is oatmeal cooked with a 1/4c of chopped, skinned almonds. Kapha can skip breakfast altogether if not hungry. Pitta people should eat a heavier meal that can hold them until lunch, including wheat, milk, and a Pitta pacifying protein such as almonds or sunflower seed. An ideal Kapha breakfast is a grapefruit with honey.

Hello ~ What about Pitta ~ what is a great breakfast for a Pitta person? Thank you so much, Emily
Coffee is not generally not recommended in Ayurveda, especially for Vata and Pitta types. In terms of Vata, coffee is depleting and a diuretic and Vata is already very light and dry. Coffee also taxes the adrenals and overstimulates the nervous system which both aggravate Vata.
