It’s raining here in San Diego! The mother earth needs it. El Nino will hopefully grace SoCal with her presence this year. The rain takes me back to my midwest roots. It also takes me back inside to my blogging and cooking! Yipee!
This will be the tenth kitchari recipe I’ve made, and this one is seriously killer! Do you like my wording to draw you in? 🙂 Kitchari is one of the greatest balancing and digestible meals in the ayurvedic tradition. It’s meant to be quite bland, but this one has got plenty of flavor flaves.
Kitchari combines a protein and carbohydrate in one single dish. You can jazz it up however you like. This is the first kitchari recipe where I’ve cooked the rice and mung beans together at the same time. Super easy!
I usually make a big pot of kitchari once and week and eat it for the next couple of days. It restarts the system bringing you back into balance after a crazy weekend! Damn punch bowls. Yep, I said it. You can’t always be perfect. Ayurveda is hard to follow 24/7. That’s why I call it, Wild Vedic Living, A fusion of ayurveda and some good ol’ 20th century American life.
Anyway, back to the basics. This is a basic kitchari recipe that is TRIDOSHIC. That means you can make it for any dosha. It is a great dish to make for your family or a group of people without aggravating anyones dosha.
Looking forward to the women’s entrepreneurial food blogging conference…Blogher15! It’s important to get some inspiration with many other women doing the same. Each year I try to attend 1 conference, 2-3 workshops, and meet with a monthly entrepreneurial support group.
I almost gave up these past couple months. Fell into a deep “I’m not worth anything” hole. We all come into these places once in a while…it’s just a sign to preserver! This conference is exactly what I need to pump me up again and bring more creativity and fun to Wild Vedic Living! That’s why I’m back at it with a dank kitchari recipe for you!
Have a beautiful day!
