Eat– for Good Health

You may have heard about the Colorado Soup diet.  Theirs is a version of India’s Kitchari, shown below.  Kitchari is the comfort food and often recommended for recovering from illness.  Cook the 1/2 cup basmati rice and  1/2 cup mung beans or lentils according to directions. Rinse and the place in a pot with 2 1/2 cups water. Add seasonings: 1 tablespoon each (of cumin, coriander and turmeric) and 1 – 2 onions cooked to translucent.  Serve with 2 tablespoons yogurt.  

Coriander seeds come from the cilantro plant.  Some persons have a cilantro allergy.

    I recall Dr Oz recommending this! He had Holistic Nutritionist, Sunita Mohan, on his show to discuss the benefits of Ayurvedic diet. It included Kitchari soup.

    According to Ayurveda, India’s ancient holistic healing system, proper digestion is essential to good health. Eating kitchari for a period of time gives the digestive system the break it needs for it to devote itself to healing. The Colorado Wellness Retreat picked up on the value of this.
