Ayurveda Breakfast: 6 Great And Tasty Recipes

An ayurvedic breakfast is an ideal way to start your day - it's light, but it nourishes you well enough and provides you with energy. If you take extra care, you can balance all three doshas and stimulate the digestive fire (agni). A great start to the day! Find here breakfast tips, as well as 6 great Ayurveda breakfast recipes to recreate in your own home from Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof in Austria.

How to start your day well

If you want to enjoy a truly balanced Ayurvedic breakfast, then watch out for the following:

  • Natural, fresh ingredients
  • Seasonal products
  • Light, warm food
  • Not too much
  • Dairy products not with sour fruits

Especially in the winter months, you can eat more than in summer. A good "appetiser" before the right breakfast is a glass of warm water with lemon or ginger. This mixture activates your Agni and prepares your stomach for food intake, as well as counteracting the fluid loss of the previous night.
