Build Strength & Boost EnergyHazelnuts are heavy and oily in nature, providing nutritious protein and fat to support tissue growth. Coconut oil is an energy boosting fat source as its medium chain triglycerides are easily digested, absorbed and converted straight into energy instead of stored as fat.
Calm the NervesThe optional addition of ashwagandha in this recipe is particularly supportive for Vata types or those experiencing frayed nerves. It is an adaptogenic herb which supports the adrenals and allows the body to better manage stress. It is generally indicated in conditions of low body weight, weakness and hyperactivity.
