Tridosha Lunch Tips coming in hot:
Vata: Vata is dry, cold, light and mobile. We should avoid anything that encompasses these at our precious lunch times.
Vata is scattered by lunch time. They grab the closest thing: crackers,pesto & cinnamon tea. Walks around thinking during lunch.
Vatas needs warm food if possible. Crackers are very dry, pesto is great with some wholemeal pasta. Vatas benefit from a heavier lunch than a big dinner.
Top tip: Sit while eating, create a nice environment and atmosphere to consume your food in! You wont regret it. Why would you not?
Pitta: Pitta is hot, oily, sharp. Avoid anything that encompasses these at lunchtime.
Pitta gets Tony the tiger hungry, fast! And runs to get a hidden chocolate bar because the canteen is busy. Everyone is so slow! An hour later Pitta is super cranky because they need real supportive food that does not increase their heat.
Try to prep your food way before lunch to avoid the vending machine. Make some rice, veg and a portion of chicken. Something that can be heated fast! Avoid fried foods if possible. Avoid cold water and water bottles from the fridge! Yes we’re looking at your the Evian’s and all other sources of coldness. Cold water reduces digestive power. Eat chocolate seldom.
Top Tip: Eat with slowing down in mind. Chew your food as much as possible to help your digestion commit to the process. Otherwise digestive imbalance can start very fast.
Kapha: Kapha is cool, oily, dense, sticky. Avoid anything that encompasses these at lunchtime.
Kaphas might get an egg salad sandwich, tea, an apple and a water to hydrate just incase. Eggs are hard to digest, apples are good for Kapha’s but a bit drying to your digestion. Kapha’s are not as thirsty as other doshas so don’t worry if you get concerned about how much water you’re drinking. You’re doing great. Kapha’s have plenty inner hydration already, because they are made of water and earth, they hold onto both really well.
Top Tip: Reduce salt intake and instead bring some spicy spices with you to help assist your damp nature. Peppers, Chili’s or chili powder, a pinch of cayenne on damp type food. Sprinkle on your lunches!
Ensue Digestive Harmony, Bon Appetite.
