Fall Ayurveda Cleanse

Join me for a seasonal Ayurvedic cleanse this fall! Ayurvedic cleanses provide a physical, mental and emotional reset. Detoxing has been practiced at seasonal transitions for thousands of years, and plays an important role in your overall well-being.

The Ayurvedic approach doesn’t involve juice, spicy lemonade, fasting and depriving yourself of solid food. Instead, it focuses on cooking and eating warm, nourishing and comforting foods and teas that encourage a gentle release of toxins built-up over time. It also includes self-care practices that promote both cleansing and rejuvenation.  You’ll notice a renewed sense of balance, inner-peace and calmness as you move through the cleanse.

This guided cleanse includes:

  • Four live group calls over Zoom for support and instructions
  • Handouts for each phase of the cleanse (preparation, active cleanse, rejuvenation)
  • Recipes (one per each phase)
  • Option to schedule an individual Ayurvedic consultation with me to discuss your specific health and wellness goals at a discounted rate.

The cleanse will last 25 days and starts September 12, 2020. The Zoom call schedule is below. We are following the cleanse from the book “The 25 Day Ayurveda Cleanse” by Kerry Harling. It is recommended that you also purchase that book for more recipes, day by day cleanse schedule and shopping lists.

Recipe: Amaranth Porridge

I prefer to eat a cooked breakfast, as it’s easier to digest in the morning. Most of the year I turn to oatmeal for my warm breakfast. As we move into late spring and summer, oatmeal begins to feel too heavy. That’s when I turn to amaranth porridge. 

Amaranth is a gluten-free grain that has a nutty taste. It’s a lighter grain, but is still satisfying. It’s high in iron, calcium and magnesium. In Ayurveda, amaranth is good to balance kapha, as it’s dry and light. It also balances Pitta, as it’s cooling and sweet, as it has an affinity for soothing the eyes. Vata types can balance the dryness of amaranth by adding some oils to their porridge, like coconut oil or ghee.

Gather:
1/2 cup amaranth
1 cup of water
A few pinches of cinnamon
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tsp coconut butter or ghee
Optional: top with oat milk and serve with fresh fruit

Make:
Bring the water, amaranth and cinnamon to a boil. Turn heat down so the porridge is simmering, and partially cover. Stir occasionally. Cook about 20 minutes, until all of the water is absorbed.

Stir in the flax seed and hemp seeds. Top with coconut oil or ghee. I also like to pour some oat milk over top to make it more porridgy and creamy. Optional: serve with fruit of your choice.

*Makes one serving
**Gluten-free, vegan option
