Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate is a South American herb that offers an incredible running start for kapha in the morning. Stimulating, energizing, focusing, slightly bitter and astringent in nature, yerba mate is chock-full of valuable vitamins (including A, C, B1 and B2), trace minerals (including chromium, iron and potassium), and antioxidants. It's often celebrated as a weight-management tea and tastes great with other kapha-pacifying herbs, such as tulsi, ginger, lemon, and cinnamon.

mint

Fresh Mint Tea

Mint is an Ayurvedic wonder herb, particularly for the way it lays excessive fire symptoms to rest. Mint cools the body, chills the mind, gently aids digestion, and—when taken with regularity—may offer relief to various forms of inflammation, including headaches and arthritis. Its refreshing properties are helpful to the extra-warm blooded. Mint tea is perfect for pitta and can be taken hot or at room temperature throughout the day. Use fresh mint whenever you have the chance.

ginger

Fresh Ginger Tea

More than just a hot drink, ginger tea is often called universal medicine in Ayurveda. It's an incredible warm tonic that aids digestion, circulation, and overall vigor. Vata types benefit from fresh ginger's incredible digestive prowess: fresh ginger root helps us to absorb and assimilate daily nutrients.

Adding additional vata-pacifying herbs like lemongrass, licorice root, and ashwaganda is a fun way to change up this timeless hot tea.

creamy wheat cereal

Creamy Wheat Cereal

Of the three doshas in ayurveda, pitta handles wheat the best. This is because they tend to have such good digestive fire—a quality required to break down heavy or sticky foods that contain gluten. Pitta's digestion can be so good, in fact, that sometimes it needs a little cooling down. Gentle spices like coriander, mint, and rose do the trick in that department, while adding beautiful flavor and color. Adding a tablespoon or two of seeds to this dish helps boost the overall protein content.

egg white omelet

Egg White Omelet

This omelet is yolk-free on purpose: egg yolks are too hot and oily for fiery pitta. Egg whites are a pure, clean protein source, an important component in keeping pitta's vital pathways clear and in check. This simple dish truly satisfies. Try it served with a side of cool coconut oil-buttered bread or barely-sweet oatmeal.

saffron almond shake

Fresh Saffron-Almond Shake

Sweet and soothing, almond milk helps calm the mind, pacify restlessness, and is considered a reproductive wellness tonic in ayurvedic medicine. This recipe is seriously adaptable: you can use dairy milk, oat milk, or any seed-based milk. This is a great grab-and-go breakfast for pitta when you're in a hurry or just getting home from an intense workout.

greens and toast

Greens and Seed Butter Toast

Pitta people, because of their hot and oily constitutions, are better matched with seeds as a vegetarian protein source, rather than nuts. Nuts are heavy (good for pitta) but also oily and often quite heating (not good for pitta). The sattvic nut exception is almond—a nut pitta will enjoy the most when they are soaked or processed into a creamy unsalted butter. Bitter foods help pull excess fire out of the body and dark leafy greens are amongst the most qualified for the job. Steamed kale, collards, beet greens or dandelion greens (and all raw lettuces) make fabulous side dishes for pitta.

yogurt

Balancing Yogurt

If anyone can start the day with thick, sour, nutritive yogurt, it's vata. Sour is a moist and warming taste that encourages prolific digestion and elimination, a fact that should make vata types very excited about this breakfast. But even vata needs to add other elements to make yogurt balancing. Pungent spices add lightness and warmth to the heaviness of whole dairy. Nuts, seeds, and grains contribute to the creation of a complete protein. Vata needs healthy fats in the diet, so choose a full fat yogurt. Pair this meal with a cup of hot tea and you'll have sustained energy all morning.
