Each energy has certain physical, physiological and personality qualities that are unique and can be tailored to - especially when it comes to diet and nutrition. Being aware of what you put into your body will leave you healthy and full of energy! Overall, prioritize ~balance~ in your daily diet and make sure all your produce is fresh and organic to receive the most amount of nutrients.
These 4 foods are specific to balance and pacify the fire and water Pitta dosha within you. So if you're feeling hot and fiery -- eat these foods!
1. Sweet Fruit
Sweet fruit such as pears, mangos, berries, apples, grapes, avocados and coconut are easy on the pitta stomach compared to sour fruit, but still fulfill the sweet tooth that most pitta's have while being a great source of vitamins and fiber.
2. Leafy Greens
#eatyogreens Everyone can benefit from some green leafy vegetables, especially Pittas. Salads with a variety of greens such as kale, arugula, broccoli, and asparagus offer a low calorie, high nutrient meal option. Make sure to avoid spinach, as it can be hard to digest for pittas!
3. Herbal Tea
Start your day or wind down after a long week with a Pitta specific herbal tea to promote rest and body regeneration. This can be bought online or from any whole foods store - just make sure it is organic!
Pittas normally don't love herbs or spices, but cilantro is an exception! Cilantro is a great way to detox your body and get rid of toxins while also providing beneficial nutrients, phytochemicals and vitamins. As an antioxidant, cilantro also helps protect your cells against free radicals!
Happy clean eating!!
