Coffee & your Ayurvedic dosha

Coffee & your Ayurvedic dosha

Since my high school days, where I would rock up late to first period, waltz in with coffee in hand (my teachers must have seriously rolled their eyes at this!) I have had a love affair with coffee. Working as a barista in trendy cafes where drinking copious cups of coffee is the norm, fuelled my habitual coffee drinking and I didn’t give it a second thought.

Use your discernment and intuition to decide on what ingredients are balancing for you, go with produce that is organic, in season and as local as possible. This recipe  is balancing for all doshas but you can super charge it with the spices, veggies and grains that work best for you.

I often say that Ayurveda is the original self-care system. If there was ever a health or healing syem that subscribes to the idea that "beauty comes from the inside out" it's Ayurveda. 

It will be no surprise that I will preface this little beauty ritual by pointing out that unless your diet, lifestyle, sleep, yoga and exercise no external beauty treatment will get you glowing, no matter how sophisticated, expensive or  cutting edge it might be.
