Lentils are truly a superfood that works wonders for your body and are tridoshic – beneficial and balancing for vata, pitta, and kapha. Red lentils are more beneficial for all doshas than some of the other types like brown or green. Some vata doshas may find they can be hard to digest, but if you rinse thoroughly and soak them for an hour or so they should be easier on your system. Cooking lentils with ghee and the proper spices can also aid in the digestion of them. Full of protein and fiber, lentils are a simple ingredient that is easy to find and very affordable. Red lentils help keep you full and are low on the glycemic index which helps to prevent blood sugar spikes. Being such a versatile ingredient, you can prepare them with any type of vegetable, water, or bone broth for a unique and personalized flavor profile. Lentils are packed with vitamin B, calcium, potassium, zinc, and iron.
Carrots and ginger have long been a classic culinary combination providing a balance between sweetness and spice. Carrots are a powerful antioxidant-rich food that helps to support eyesight (did you know ghee does as well?) as well as assisting in the cleansing of the blood and liver. Ginger is an ancient medicinal herb that has a wide variety of healing properties including immune system support, digestive system support, healing nausea, and comforting aching joints. The turmeric in our Farmtrue Golden Milk Latte mix also pairs well with the two ayurvedic ingredients and helps to add to the depth of flavor.
