How Can Broiled Grapefruit with Cinnamon Make You Feel Great?
This internal debate is usually very different for a Kapha person. Desserts are generally sweet, cool and heavy - exactly the opposite of what supports a Kapha type! They tend to crave desserts more than others and struggle to resist the sweet temptation. However, Kapha's are most prone to post indulgent side effects including congestion, excess mucus, a dull feeling in the head and sluggish digestion. They are often left asking themselves - is it worth it?
A Light DessertThis 'Broiled Grapefruit' dessert will satisfy any sweet tooth without the usual side effects. Fresh and juicy, this fruit is sour and bitter to taste. The sourness adds a digestive element to the dessert, stimulating the release of gastric juices and promoting efficient fat metabolism. The bitter taste adds a purifying element to the dish, as it stimulates the flow of bile, cleansing any congestion in the liver and gall bladder. After eating this, you'll feel satisfied but not stuffed.
Decongest MucusCloves, cinnamon and honey combined are powerful decongestants which draw out excess mucus leaving your nasal passages and sinuses clear. This combination warms the blood on a cold day, stimulates circulation and also kick starts a sluggish Kapha stomach. Never cook or heat honey. This changes its clearing properties to clogging, and can become a toxic substance. Enjoy this treat guilt free and sip with ginger tea for a light and refreshing end to your evening.
