6 Flavors loved by 3 body types. Which one is yours?

According to Ayurveda, each meal should contain all                                                                                     six flavors: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent, and pungent. 
The 3 Ayurvedic body types, or Doshas, are Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Each Dosha has a unique set of characteristics. There are several ways to determine your body type. The most accurate is through the detailed history and physical by an Ayurvedic physician. However, even taking a quick note of what you love about the foods you eat - will provide you with tremendous insight into your principal Dosha.

Most people are a combination of two Doshas, but one typically predominates.
The dominance of the flavors or types of foods we love will be based on our predominant Dosha makeup. Being mindful of those cravings is at the heart of maintaining optimal health for body and mind.The Kapha Dosha
Kapha is typically the largest of the body types. Physically, they have wide hips/shoulders; thick wavy h…

5 Reasons why REDUCTION is better...

We are naturally conscious of ourselves, what we are thinking, how we look, and what we are doing. As David Foster Wallace put it, “There is no experience you’ve had that you were not at the absolute center of.”
Having more of what you love makes for a better experience. This is as true for an individual as it is for an organization. Here are 5 reasons to to give away or sell what you do not need any more. 1. IT’S JUST EASIERWhen it comes to getting rid of things, less is truly more. With less to organize, pack, load, haul, and unpack when you move, you will be freeing up your time, energy, and money.
        2. A NEW LEASE ON LIFE It can be difficult to let go of items with sentimental value, but when you give away or sell at auction, you're giving your even heirlooms a chance at a new chapter with a new owner who will appreciate and value them at their full potential.
3. A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENTSometimes tackling even the junk drawer can be intimidating. But once you finally mark t…

Eating Your Thoughts For Your Body's Health

If your every thought about food over a year manifested into calories will you be thin or fat, healthy or unhealthy, happy or sad?  Most of us, cannot answer the question honestly. This is because for the most part we have become, thoughtless mindless eaters.

Slaves to our tongues and the gimmicks of clever advertising,often we find ourselves with little control over our relationship to our food and our health. And yet this does not need to be the case.
A small dose of thought injected into our eating experience can bring astonishing rewards.

Mindfulness is no longer a mystical concept. Numerous books, websites and dedicated apps promote the practice as a potential antidote to many modern-day ailments.

Mindful eating is not a diet, or about giving up anything at all. It's about experiencing food more intensely — especially the pleasure of it.

You can eat a  carrot, a cheeseburger or a cookie mindfully, if you wish. You might enjoy it a lot more. Or you might decide, halfway throug…

Coconut Oil Is Good For You, Says New Study

Coconut oil may help lower the risk of heart disease and the chances of a stroke, according to a study by researchers from the University of Cambridge. There has been much debate on whether coconut oil provides advantages or disadvantages to a person's well-being. However, the latest study shows that the substance, which comes with more saturated fat compared to lard and butter, has a significant health benefit. Food For The Heart The study provides evidence that coconut oil is good for a person's heart. However, there are other kinds of food that provide the same health benefits. The World Health Organization recommended an increase in potassium intake for reduced blood pressure, which would lower the odds of heart disease and stroke. Examples of such food include bananas, avocados, raisins, sweet potatoes, spinach, and coconut water. Researchers also recently made the surprising discovery that consuming small amounts of cheesedaily decreases the risk of coronary heart disea…
