Intentional eating and healthy digestion start with:
talking with your medicines, foods, and liquids. Put your intentions and tell them what you need. Our digestion is an important factor in our immune system, staying connected to what we are ingesting as well as how we are ingesting it.
Find relaxation and gratitude with your meals.
Put calming music and light a candle to help aid in digestion. In Ayurveda, we enjoy lighting a candle to help aid in the transformation of our food. Put on calming music and set up your ambiance.
If your stressed take a moment to calm down before eating, sit with your feelings and breathe. Our food will not digest when we don't feel well. Take your time with your food, chew it well aiding in digestion.
Keep a rhythm with your digestion
Stay on a routine with your meals, eat easy to digest, cooked and warm foods.
Avoid heavy, cold and raw foods at this time.
Sip on hot water throughout the day to aid in digestion and removing cold from the body.
