Im really glad to be here! I’m excited to share with your audience!
My background as an Ayurveda Health Counselor and Yoga Health Coach and Teacher
- woman who are overwhelmed
- How to make healthy habits simple.
- things that they want
- things we all want is to feel good in our bodies
One of the biggest things about that is what we put in our bodies!
I love food so much
ways to use our relationship food and enjoy it without feeling restricted and limited
Hopefully you can feel that way too.
I think you’re gonna have to have a ton of value to share!
It’s gonna be short because I messed up and was at a meeting

Let’s talk about spring
Let’s talk about spring from an Auyevedic persepective
East Indian Medicine
- sister science of yoga
- life knowledge
- self knowledge
intuitive awareness we have about how to take care of our selves
how do the behaviors we have reflect or not reflect what nature was doing
I think sometimes we forget we are also part of nature as humans
We need to be nourished and take of nature as well and
- food growing out of the ground
- taking care of it
- part of nature
- part of the creations
Springtime is thought of as Mud Season
I never grew up calling it that in Michigan it fits so well here and it actually fits with the
Ayurvedic definition is
the way energy shows up in all things
Kapha is really the combination of
earth and water
when you mix earth and water you get mud
the way it shows up in the season it’s obvious
water is gonna be nourishing the seeds in the ground soon we’re gonna have
- excess fluid in the lungs
- maybe gonna get spring cold
- can feel a bit stuck in their bodies
good time to grab a partner and join something to do something new
That kapha energy can feel like mud in our bodies
But the cool thing is it provides us a lot of endurance
We might be resistance to change
we have a capacity for it right now
foods that are available to balance that
heavy weighty earthy tendencies that maybe leave us more lethargic
evaporating and work against heaviness in our bodies
cleanse and detox
I had no idea there was that much to all of this.
I have sprouts growing already, we just planted and I have tiny leaves that are ready to put on your sandwich or in your soup they didn’t take much to grow at all?! Let’s talk about mustard greens….
I wanna do a tangent here
in Michigan maybe out here in Montana too.
There is this an evasive called garlic mustard.
Do you know about garlic mustard?
people are grabbing it and uprooting it
somebody thought it was good
tastes like garlic and mustard
mustard greens you buy in the store have that similar puncency.
Do you know what happens and you bite into arugula?
Is there a sparky ness and does your mouth sort of pucker?
I find the baby arugula is not as bitter as when they grow more?
So it’s a little more palatable?
But that bitter taste can kind of it kind of wakes us up
Like you said, it makes you feel alive
Kapha Dosha earth and water there’s no fire in that combo
We need something to be a little sharper in that combo
and mustard greens do that, we need that sharp flavor
I’ve been putting them in my smoothie in the morning
- ginger in their smoothie
- cayenne pepper
- has that same kick
gonna be really pungent
You want to be mindful they have such a strong kick you want to use a bit less of them.
If you are gonna use
- mustard greens
just switching over
arugula is a bitter green as well. If you are not ready to try something like a mustard green might do something like kale or arugula
Or if you are just starting to incorporate greens into your diet is a good idea because
is gonna start to clean that gunk that has clogged the channels from winter.
part from my friend Angela Christman up in Canada!
her High Vibe Tribe!
Basically made her smoothie and then added
first morning I added 2 mustard green leaves
could not drink
- whole or half an avacado
- need a high powered blender
- juice of one lime
- peeled ginger
- cup of coconut water and almost milk blend till smoothie
- applesauce instead of an apple if you have an old blender like we used to
- powdered ginger
It’s just a way to start incorporating some of these flavors that help us to digest appropriately for the season.
I am happier to talk more about that like we talked about before we hit record
easier to add things then subtract things
not ready to give up the heavier things from winter.
stoke up your digestive fire
process your foods more easily
- eliminate well
- move well
- feel alive
Ayurveda Ayur means life and veda means knowledge
The interesting thing about sanscripts
that we don’t have
You have packed more golden seeds in 10 minutes or 15 minutes then I ever expected. Sorry listeners I promise I won’t be late next week!
