Yoga Meals for Cleansing and Health

When diet is wrong medicine, it is of no use.

When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.


~Ayurvedic Proverb


Kitcheree is a traditional Indian dish made from rice and daal (lentils).


Mung beans are often used, but many varieties of lentils and beans can be used. This site has some wonderful recipes for Kitcheree and other health building and cleansing recipes. This is not a "hot" spicy dish, but it is filled with aromatic herbs like cinnamon, cumin, and cloves. All of the spices provide vital health giving functions in the Ayurvedic tradition.

You can find out more about the ancient system of Ayurveda, here.

Happy Eating! May your food nourish and protect you.
