Barbecue recipes for yogis
Beat the heat with cooling food
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.
