Raw Veggies May Not Always be Good for You! Discover Your Dosha Type

Remember my blog post I Don't Want a Damn Salad Today! I learned that this was not me not trying to be healthy. Everyone knows that I am definitely about that holistic life! Our bodies need different things. No one food item or diet works for all.

During my research I learned that my Ayurvedic Dosha Type is Kapha-Pitta. I learned that raw veggies aren't always best for me. I tried a raw vegan diet, and my body did not respond will to it at all. I was so scared that I was going to pass out.

I thought it was the "toxins leaving my body" and boy was I wrong! Good thing I listed to my body and went and got me a curry soup and falafel veggie bowl. I am no expert and still learning. Check out some of Sahara Rose's YouTube vids here. 

 Check out this story to get a better understanding: 

"A patient came to me recently after being advised by a well-meaning health practitioner to consume each morning a blended smoothie made from kale, romaine, pear, and soaked nuts or seeds—all of which are bitter or astringent tastes that increase Vata dosha—along with some water. She diligently did so for four days and despite drinking 100 ounces of fluid daily, ended up in the emergency room with a bowel impaction. What the practitioner didn’t account for was that she lacked the digestive capacity to handle this particular combination of raw foods. For her, a diet of steamed and sautéed vegetables were consumed easily and she was able to gradually rebuild her digestive strength.

Another patient who was Pitta by nature with strong digestion, lost 20 pounds, decreased his serum cholesterol, and eliminated aches and pains by consuming two green juices daily, in addition to eating a more Mediterranean-style diet.

In short, not all raw foods are bad and not all cooked foods are bad. Some people are able to tolerate foods that others cannot. After more than 20 years researching food and nutrition, I have found that there’s no “right” diet that benefits all people. In order to determine if a raw foods diet is right for you, take into account your general ability to digest, your dosha type, and your current health situation. How does your body react to the foods that you are currently consuming? It may help for you to keep a daily food journal and note how you feel after eating different kinds of foods. Keep in mind that sometimes you won’t immediately feel the effects of eating a certain kind of food until the next day. Pay attention and you will begin to notice patterns. These clues, and the wisdom of Ayurveda, can help you find the best diet for you" Read the full article from Chopra.com here.

Set a Plan But Don't Limit Yourself

Yes you do need a plan to succeed, but isn't that true about anything in life?

Life is to be enjoyed for all. Abstaining from meat & dairy does not equal deprivation. Imagine a life of eating delicious foods to heal you. Imagine eating foods that not only look good, taste good, and are good for you.... But eating foods that make you look, feel, smell, and taste good too!

Don't you want the most cost effective, practical, and gratifying results?

Interested, need help, or don't have time to plan? That is what we are here for!

We are here for you. Reach out to us :)

I Don't Want a Damn Salad Today

Simba the Naturalista

            *2018 UPDATE

           Often times I am on the go. Sometimes, I am not able to access my handy dandy mini crock pot food warmer. Sometimes I am just not in the mood for a smoothie. Sometimes I just want a quickie no strings, I mean hassles attached.

            Plus, I need to be able to let my clients know where they can grab things if they are ever in a pinch. I will be providing a comprehensive guide later if the demand is there. In the meantime, comment to let me know what neighborhoods & cuisines you would like for me to cover.

            This will be the only free on the go options post. This is because I like the food and don't ever want them to stop selling it. But really, the staff was super welcoming and awesome to me. MEAT & DAIRY FREE POWER AND LOVE! 

 

1. Eat Pow Pow (H Street)- Disco Stick & Natalie Porkman Bowl.

2. Buredo (K Street)- Pretty Riki Sushi Burrito

3. Honey grow (Gallery Place/Chinatown)- Thai Curry noodles w/tofu & veggies

4. Seoul Spice (NoMa)- Tofu Korrito Herbivore w/ ginger carrot sauce.

5. Takorean (Navy Yard)- Half tofu half cauliflower, spice kale, gochu pow sauce, sesame seeds, and cilantro bowl or tacos.

  Nothing amounts to a home-cooked meal, but eh life happens. Here at V Soul, we are realistic and practical in our approach. Preparation + Consistency = Results!
