Continuing on from the delicious Vata recipes we shared recently, this week we’re focusing on the Pitta Dosha! Pittas are the firecrackers, often bolshy and intense characters that tend to have a higher body temperature than the likes of Vata and Kapha. When in balance, their energy levels are strong and so is their appetite and digestion. When the scales are tipped, they can be prone to things like heartburn, indigestion and skin rashes. Because of their tendency to overheat, Pittas are usually advised to eat cooling foods and are recommended to eat heavily vegetarian. Cooling herbs like coriander and fennel are great for adding into recipes as are citrus, quite astringent fruits. Foods that tend to aggravate Pittas is anything with excessive spice, anything pungent or sour. Summer is an ideal time to embrace your pitta preferences so here are 6 recipes to try!
