Healthy Cooking with Ayurvedic Spices
It was the beginning of the monsoon season, and Seema was suffering from a seasonal sickness at the time. She missed her mother's delectable soups and stews that were packed with rich flavours and healthy nutrients. Her illness would be cured in two days thanks to the meals she ate. Visits to her mother's home were always a welcomed relief, and Seema was delighted to savour the incredibly healthy and delectable food laced with fragrant Ayurvedic spices.
Every meal is an opportunity to strengthen your bond with your body and mind. Consider what your body needs on that specific day before opening your spice cabinet.
When your body is cold or feels cold, it is important to use warming spices such as cumin, black pepper, and mustard seed. When the weather is hot, or if you are experiencing internal heat, choose spices that are more neutral or cooling, such as coriander, cardamom, and fennel.
Spices are full of therapeutic properties. One of the most essential functions of spices is to stimulate our digestive fire, which is required for optimal digestion. And effective digestion is important for maximum health since everything we consume will either become body tissues or not, with the power of our digestion being the decisive factor.
Saffron, basil, fresh ginger, cumin, black pepper, and fennel are among the best warming spices. Choose cinnamon, mint, coriander, turmeric, fennel, fresh cilantro, or cardamom for cooling. To increase the heat, use clove, turmeric, black pepper, mustard seeds, chilli peppers, and fenugreek seeds. We provide a large selection of spices in whole or powdered form for your convenience.
