4. Slow Cooker: A large amount of time can be spent in the kitchen preparing and cooking. This amount of attention is not always available to the majority of us. A slow cooker eliminates your need to stick around for the duration of the cook. Lentils, rice, churnas, veggies, and broth all go in at the same time and voila! You have breakfast, lunch or dinner ready and waiting for you. Bring a slow cooker to work and feed the office! Now you have no excuse not to eat freshly cooked warm and hardy meals.

Shout out to Vita-Clay! Set the timer before bed and wake up the next morning to hot cereal. Compact and easy to clean!

Is Your Kitchen Serving You?

Organizing and setting up my kitchen is one of my favorite things to do for myself as well as my clients. When you walk into your kitchen and start to prepare a meal, are your favorite spices front and center? Are they on a shelf organized for easy access or scattered here and there? Same thing goes for commonly used pots and pans, your “new” time efficient equipment and anything else you have been wanting to organize in your favor, but have not had the occasion or push to do so. Now is the time! These areas of your kitchen that need your attention become energy leaks and overall eliminate your excitement to be in the kitchen!

Vata, the most common imbalanced dosha, can be adjusted by simply implementing things like routine and organization. So, set up and cleanse your kitchen! Remove things that you are not using and are not serving you. Organize your pantry and cupboards with all your go-to’s at an arms reach. Use your spice grinder to pre-make churnas so it is instantly ready for use in soups or stir-frys. Become comfortable with your slow-cooker and immersion blender. Lastly, have an electric kettle in every room!

4 Time-Saving Tools For Your kitchen

1. Hand Blender: If your hand blender is not already glued to your hand, make sure it is on your holiday wish list.

How to use: Submerge the blade under two or more inches of liquid (soup, broth) and blend! Be aware as you circulate your pot – if you happen to tip the blender to the side at too far of an angle you will splatter yummy liquid everywhere!

Why Blend?

When the digestion is weak it is recommended that food intake become very easy to assimilate. If you are experiencing symptoms of an unbalanced digestion blending your veggies and taking plain organic white rice can be part of your self-care plan.

There are other various reasons​ to blend. Vegetarian broths can be elevated by blending the carrots and onions to create a thicker base. Legume stews are often blended for a creamier consistency. What do you blend?

2. Electric kettle: I use this every day. Multiple times. Hot water is a huge resource in Ayurvedic health. Have you started your Hot Water Routine? Do you know which spices to use? Try taking a cup of hot water every half hour for the next few days. This will assist in purifying toxins through the body.

3. Spice Grinder: Many of the recipes you will be making as you start to play with Ayurvedic cuisine (Indian based flavors) will ask for powdered spices. You will be surprised at the rate in which you go through traditional spices like turmeric, cumin, coriander, fennel, cardamom, cloves… You can use a coffee grinder as well, although you may get cardamom notes in your coffee!

Your Kitchen Is A Temple

During an appointment, we may talk about an internal purification as targeting your digestion, sleep and/or menstrual cycle, etc, but there are also many other ways to purify, ranging from cell phone cleanses to Ayurvedic Panchakarma. For now, I would like to step into your kitchen with you and give it a good ol’ Kitchen Cleanse. Did I spring clean you too soon? I’m not just writing about cobwebs in the corner. I want you to feel like your kitchen is providing you easy access to commonly used tools that will effectively reduce your time in the kitchen. Create a space you love to be in.

Even if you have only dipped your toes into the healing world of Ayurveda, you have probably noticed that although there many wonderful holistic tools, it can be challenging to implement this ancient wisdom. True holistic health takes time and can ask for significant life-patterns and routines to be changed and altered. My goal with you now and always is to offer bite-size pieces and ways to implement what you are learning so that these changes are achievable and long-lasting​. So, let’s get into your kitchen!
