CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
Protein Packed for Reduced Sugar CravingsQuinoa Walnut Date Warm Cereal is a sturdy breakfast that can help curb carb cravings and so you maintain a healthy weight. Often, carbohydrate and sugar cravings are protein cravings in disguise. If you crave carbs, make quinoa your first choice. Quinoa provides the satisfaction of carbohydrates, but also feeds your hidden protein craving. Quinoa offers more protein than any other whole grain in a nice, easy to digest package. Its high quantity of protein coupled with walnuts sustains the hot, demanding appetite of pitta, while the grounding warmth makes vata feel stable and strong. Quinoa is light and slightly scraping, making it a choice grain for kaphas.
Blood BuildingQuinoa is rich in iron, and restores strength to deficient blood. It contains more calcium than milk, and is rich in magnesium, phosphorus, strengthening kidney yang. Magnesium relaxes and nourishes the heart and muscles, while it promotes heart function.
Nourishing After IllnessThe simple and satisfying "pseudo-grain" known is especially attractive for those with weak digestion or recovering from illness. It is high in fiber, soothing to the digestive tract, and slightly cooling, relieving inflammatory conditions. Plus it is free of gluten, a common allergen found in wheat and other grains, which contributes to its digestibility and increasing popularity.
The Warmth Of WalnutsNourishing, warm and drying, walnuts are just what you need on a cold, damp day. Their textured crunch perks you up. Walnuts are stimulating and feed the brain, empowering you to start the day on point. Their richness gives this dish a rustic, hearty feel. Frazzled nerves become a distant memory as walnuts seep their way into your cells. Like many brown colored nuts, the brown coating on walnuts is full of tannins. Tannins are astringent, provoking Vata. You can feel this astringency as a tightening or rough effect on your tongue. For better tasting, less astringent walnuts soak them in water overnight and drain. Roasting walnuts also destroys their astringency while preserving crunchiness.
