Rice Noodles A La Ayurveda
Why did I not try these rice noodles before?? So delicious, filling and gluten free, and so can be part of a cleansing-elimination program! I am following a Winter Cleanse program and trying new recipes with creative ideas. Here I mixed a few recipes together.When you think of detox or cleanses you think of limiting yourself too few ingredients. However in an Ayurvedic cleanse, you learn to play with many spices and new ingredients and nourish your body and soul so well that you never feel deprived. Each spice in this dish has a purpose and support to your digestive energy. Isn’t it great that we use nature to heal us and remind us that we are part of it and we have the same healing power of nature! I am learning so much in this Ayurveda training and hope to share with you more soon, so let me know if you are interested, too!
