Salmon is lighter than beef, yet gives the satisfaction of a classic all-American meal. Beef also amps up aggression whereas fish is a calmer food choice that nourishes a peaceful state of mind.
Feel light and and satisfied after eating a Salmon Burger. Aromatic lemon zest and cilantro aid in protein digestion. Quinoa mixed into salmon creates a fluffy texture with a touch of satisfying crunch and also makes these salmon burgers especially light to digest.
Protein and Mineral Rich

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. Salt water fish in general more pacifying for Vata, together with juicy Omega 3's makes this ideal for dry constitutions.

What is the biocharacteristic theory of medicine?
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.
Experiences are Personal

"Salt water fish in general more pacifying for Vata, together with juicy Omega 3's makes this ideal for dry constitutions." Is it a mistake that this recipe is labeled as Vata provoking then?
Salmon itself is not Vata-provoking, but several other of hte ingredients in this recipe may provoke Vata is used in excess. Adding avocado or some kind of heavy starch might help to make this recipe better for Vata types.

Really good! Next time will likely use green onions instead of red. Topped it with Vegenaise and some cilantro, which was super delicious.
