How Can This Ayurvedic Recipe Make You Feel Great?

Sticky Sweet Slow-Down
Peach Blackberry Bake with Nut Crust brightens any mood served right out of the oven or chilled on a hot day. In the oven, peaches and berries release their juices to create a rich mixture whose sweet-tartness makes your mouth water. Enjoy the satisfying crunch of its sweet toasted almond and sugar crystal crust as it opens up to juicy-sweet peach, brightened by blackberry.
Your nose will tell you Peach Blackberry Bake with Nut Crust is in the works, calling you to the kitchen from down the hall or down the street. Almonds are a major player in this combination of scent, releasing oils that charge the air. When it comes to its aphrodisiac and reproductive support qualities, almonds are second to none. Don't you find its sweet flavor and aroma sensual and enticing?
This ultra-juicy dessert is highly medicinal for vata dosha, for whom sweet taste offers the sensation of coming home. Sours lubricate the dry GI tract of Vata, while nuts provide substantial oils and energy. Pitta will also benefit from sweet and sour tastes, but should pay attention to how their body reacts to warming peaches. Some balance is offered by cooling maple syrup which tonifies the blood. This fruit and sugars will provoke Kapha dosha, who may feel sticky and heavy after eating. That said, when Kapha has a hankering for a decadent dessert, Peach Blackberry Bake with Nut Crust is much easier on the body than chocolate cake with all the satisfaction.
Ripe vs. Underripe
Choose your peaches carefully! For a more crisp, bright, astringent taste, favor slightly underripe peaches. For full-on decadence and juice, choose ripe peaches.

Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)
Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics
Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance.
By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick.
Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold).
You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.

The Three Doshas / Body Types
According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine
people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and imbalances that are unique to the person.
Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness.
Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency.
Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses.
The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.
The 3 functional body types
are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha).
Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy.
Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy.
Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass.
Catabolic people tend to be easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry.
Metabolic people tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed.
Anabolic people are heavy, stable and grounded, but if they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion.
