Bar­be­cue recipes for yo­gis

Beat the heat with cool­ing food

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON - Vi­neeta Sharma

Sum­mer is the time to en­joy the out­doors.

At times, too much heat and hu­mid­ity can be chal­leng­ing. Fur­ther to my pre­vi­ous ar­ti­cle on cool­ing yoga breath­ing prac­tices, I would like to share a few bar­be­cue recipes for your (yoga) grill at home. Beat the heat and hu­mid­ity with de­li­cious and cool­ing yoga grill foods! These foods are not only light on the stom­ach, but re­fresh the mind and soul.

Dur­ing the sum­mer, the fire el­e­ment in the body, called ‘Pitta’ in San­skrit texts of Ayurveda (the sis­ter science of Yoga), is high. Na­ture pro­vides us with foods that are grown dur­ing this time to main­tain har­mony in our body. These gifts of na­ture pro­vide per­fect nour­ish­ment dur­ing the sum­mer to main­tain bal­ance in the nat­u­ral el­e­ments of Earth, Wa­ter, Fire, Air and Ether (Space) in our bod­ies.

Since sum­mer is a beau­ti­ful time to en­joy out­door cook­ing, bar­be­cue some Pitta-re­duc­ing recipes on our grills to pre­vent rashes, skin prob­lems and over­heated fire in our di­ges­tive sys­tem.
