Yogi Masala Porridge

 

 

This is a good breakfast to have after your yoga practice, is fast and easy to make, all you need is a blender. The spices and gingerĀ  help digestion and balances the flavor very good. I like to mix different nuts and seeds to make mylks, this make a nice combination that is rich and nutritious. Try to get organic ingredients as much as possible to get greater benefits and taste.

Lately, I’ve been reading again about super-foods, and adding them more into my recipes. In Mexico we have a traditional candy called “Alegrias” which means “happiness”. Eating healthy food can not only nourish our body but also our state of mind. For example raw cacao, is not only a super antioxidant but also contains tryptamine serotonin. Serotonin, is a substance that works as a neurotransmitter, and one of their functions involves mood regulation.

I dehydrated sprouted buckwheat with goji berries, chia seeds, agave syrup and of course raw cacao nibs. Great for snack or for breakfast cereal!

Chayote

After my yoga practice, I provide to the body cell-regenerative food to heal and restore the joints and muscles. Yesterday while having breakfast after Mysore class, I shared with Dylan the benefits of chayote.

Enjoy cutting it, making fun shapes. It goes good with apple and your favorite nut mylk.
