How Can Seaweed and Baby Kale Tabouli Make You Feel Great?
Balance DigestionOverconsumption of a particular taste can lead to a range of imbalances. This is something you have probably experienced first hand as your body reacts to certain flavors. If you have a meal that is excessively pungent, for example, you will feel overheated. Too much astringency in your diet and you'll feel dry and perhaps experience constipation. Ayurveda promotes the inclusion of a variety of tastes, just like this recipe, to balance digestion and reduce excessive cravings for a particular flavor. Feel how your taste buds are satisfied and cleansed after this meal - so satisfied that you don't feel the need to overeat.
Lighter & Brighter'Seaweed and Baby Kale Tabouli' works to unblock stagnation, lighten your mood and balance the emotions. Carminative herbs like parsley and mint simulate digestion reducing any post meal sluggishness and add an aromatic freshness, calming the mind. The bitter taste of kale is anti-inflammatory and cleansing to the liver and blood by stimulating the release of bile, clearing excess heat and reducing toxicity. It also encourages a regular bowel movement so you feel light and cleansed.
Build StrengthQuinoa and hemp seeds are sweet, heavy and anabolic in nature, supporting the growth and development of tissues. They are both protein packed options to include in a vegetarian diet. Quinoa is also a rich source of iron, restoring strength in the blood. After a period of poor nutrition or weight loss, this meal will help you regain strength.
Thyroid AfterthoughtKelp is a rich source of iodine, one of the most important nutrients to keep the thyroid functioning at optimal levels. Kale, on the other hand, is known to slow down thyroid function in some cases. If you have a thyroid disorder, gently wilting or steaming the kale will reduce the goitrogenic compounds that can inhibit the absorption of iodine.
