CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
Warm, Brawny EggsEggs are warming and nourishing, and satisfy a strong appetite while making you feel robust and sturdy. The rich, golden hue of the egg's yolk suggests their creamy warmth, while mighty egg whites are known muscle tonics. Egg whites are popular among bodybuilders for their ability to build muscle and create brawniness in the body. Together, the heating yolk and the burly white create a powerful combination that provide the fire and strength you need to make it through dropping temperatures.
Back to School BreakfastFall brings about a return to responsibility. Kids head back to school, the thrill of summer wraps up, and you may begin to focus in again on your work and perhaps self-reflection. This is the natural tendency of the fall. Animals prepare for the winter by storing food before the time becomes critical. Eating grounding, warming meals like eggs and mushrooms while the season transitions is the best defense you have against the coming cold.
Feed the FlameA morning frittata builds heat and heartiness in your body, so that you have a storehouse of warmth on reserve for windy autumn days. Eggs, rosemary, and pepper heat up circulation, and disperse heat throughout your body so you feel warm to the bone. A pop of red pepper restores a faint red glow to your skin, as it excites the blood and heats up your circulation, making you look healthy throughout the sulky fall.
How to Balance Dense, Rich FoodsHeavy proteins like eggs make this a dense breakfast. Density provides nourishment and satisfies your stomach on cold days, but is also difficult to digest. According to Ayurveda, the denser the meal, the more digestives you have to add in order to digest is properly. Pungent spices like rosemary and red pepper can help lighten up this heavy dish and make it easier for your body to assimilate its nourishing qualities. The bitterness of swiss chard also reduces heaviness, and adds a beautiful burst of antioxidants and array of color to your morning frittata. The synergy of this recipe creates the needed density for fall without bogging down your digestion.
Calms AnxietyThis recipe is also excellent medicine for frenetic anxieties that sneak up on you in the fall. Vata-types in particular need the hearty nourishment and fats in this recipe to ground the nervous system as fall swoops into full gear. Mushrooms' earthy taste and eggs' warmth keep you grounded and calm your nervous system amidst chaotic fall days. Eating grounding, earthy mushrooms in early fall helps bring you back to earth on chaotic fall days. Rosemary is also a heating nervine, known for its ability to warm you up and keep you level-headed. The heavy fats in the yolk and olive oil provide a final layer of protection to your myelin sheath, centering scatteredness and calming the whirlwind of autumn anxiety.
