Adding Spice to Your Life, and Meals!

According to Ayurveda, a balanced diet contains all six tastes at every meal: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent.  This can be challenging given our western influences.  And since we want to make sure that we are getting the right proportion of flavors for our own dominant dosha, we tend not to want to overdo it.  There's a simple solution!  An herb and spice blend especially formulated for Vata, Pitta or Kapha balancing.  You can use this blend while cooking, or take the shaker with you to sprinkle on your food when you eat out.  You can add it to sauces, soups, vegetable or rice dishes, even just sprinkle it on salads, popcorn or snacks.  Very convenient, and really delicious.  The Vata blend is calming, and includes cardamom, ginger, and other spices.  The Pitta blend is cooling, and includes cumin, coriander and fennel along with other spices.  The Kapha blend is invigorating, with turmeric, mustard, cayenne and more.
