Awesome job you are doing out here. Love your soup recipes and breakfast options. Keep up the great job!

sophie said...

Your website is a wonderful resource for people. I have it listed as a recommended website on a resource page for my yoga students and thai massage clients. Thanks for your generosity! Peace, Sophie

Jessica said...

This is such a fantastic website! I send it to my nutrition clients all the time - so glad to see other people pass it around as well. I think you should have a book - with recipes, sketches, blogs, etc...it would be such a wonderfully holistic book. There's a sense of care and warmth in your writing. By the way, my toddler loves your recipes. Thank you for sharing!

Madeleine said...

What a delightful website! I stumbled across it when searching for alkaline recipes. I am vegan and have just embarked on a detox which emits mostly acid forming foods such as sugar and wheat products. Some of your recipes look simply delicious (chickpea soup and detox soup especially) and I can't wait to get to the market tomorrow to buy the ingredients. Thank you for your time and effort put into this website and for sharing it with all internet users. Peace, Madeleine.

Awesome site, Claudia!

Jennifer said...

Hi! I have looked for a website like this forever. So happy I found it. Nice to have an ayurvedic online community, instead of just reading books. Also, I appreciate all your photos. Most ayurvedic cookbooks don't have real photos and it can be intimidating not knowing what your end result is going to look like. When you make a cookbook, let me know!

This is just the site I was looking for. Thank you so much. I was wondering if you have any suggestions for recipes that are easily altered per portion. I am vata, but my husband is pitta. I don't want to always cook neutral meals for us. So many of the vata recipes are so appealing to me. I don't want to always be avoiding them for his sake. Thanks again.

Claudia Davila (Fran) said...

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments!!

In response to the anonymous one just before this comment, there are a few things you can do to cook for a Vata and a Pitta in the same meal. One is that you can focus on foods with Kapha qualities, which balances both Vatas and Pittas (foods that are heavy, earthy and moist). You as a Vata can add extra spice to your dish with chutneys, a ginger-garlic-coriander salsa, a sprinkle of cayenne, etc, and serve your food hot. Your husband as a pitta can add raita (yogurt with cucumber and mint) to his dishes and cool the food down a bit. There are also special dosha-specific seasonings you can have at the table to just add to your foods, to any dish, to balance out your individual doshas -- they are called churans, and you've inspired me to post about them -- check back soon!

I just found your website and am enjoying it very much. I need wheat-free (and gluten-free) recipes so always appreciate healthy vegetable-based vegetarian recipes...

Claudia Davila (Fran) said...

That's great, seamaiden! Most of the dishes on this blog are in fact gluten-free -- many dishes are rice-based, pasta dishes can always use rice noodles, and my baked goods recipes offer alternate flours to use (my favourite for baking is barley flour, or a combo of kamut, rice and arrowroot flours).

Hi! I have been following your blog for some time now. I also am a Pitta-Kapha. I have a food blog (foodophilia.blogspot.com) in the formative stage right now. You are listed as a favorite. Have you read Eating Mindfully by Dr. Susan Albers? It seems like somthing you'd be interested in. Thank you for the inspiration.

Nice website! Love the vegan recipes -- great pictures too. I like that you use whole foods, unlike a lot of vegan recipes that use imitation meat and dairy. Your diet advice for vegans is very helpful for someone transitioning to this type of diet.

Sue said...

Beautiful site, Fran!
Your recipes are very refreshing, original and simple. Great pictures too.

I enjoyed reading the yoga postures as well.

Cheers, Sue

Hey!
I just wanted to let you know that I'm amazed by you. Not only do you have a great blog, but u r such a talented artist. How on earth do you have time to work and cook and blog?! I was also wondering how you learned about Ayurveda. You seem VERY well-versed and I am just beginning my journey both in Ayurveda and the blogosphere. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated. I've got a link to you on my blog at: www.thelifeofkiley.com
Come visit anytime!!

Anonymous said...

can you recommend some foods to reduce gas/bloating ... that help ease digestion and keep the digestive system healthy? my stools are soft/mushy and I have heard that it is better to have long, firm log-like stools. also what is a natural way to clean out the system/colon? bran doesn't do it for me and I do not want to resort to these powders/gimmicks

Claudia Davila (Fran) said...

Thanks everyone for leaving such lovely messages in my guestbook!! :-)

To the last anonymous message, following a vata-pacifying diet will help reduce gas/bloating, and is also the easiest kind of food to digest. For help on that front you can start by visiting this website or do a search for "vata pacifying diet". As for stools, there can be so many factors to its consistency, so just try a vata diet for a while and see if it helps. And I find the best way to clear out the intestines is through having psyllium before your larger meals (a full teaspoon in a glass of water, followed by some more liquid). But a warning, it does produce some gas!

Gaura Das said...

Namaste ! Thank you very much for this service. So much knowledge of ayurveda is being disseminated, but it is sad that someone rarely mentions that it is a partial incarnation of Lrod Vishnu, known as Sri Dhanvantari that has given us this knowledge. Let us give credit where credit is due, and express our gratitude.

With gratitude,
Gaura Das

Leslie O. said...

Wow! Love your site -- so hard to find good info on Ayurveda -- LOVE IT -- really has a great look and feel and organization. Thank you!

What do you think of people diagnosing their own constitution? I've done classic Ayurveda treatments in the past and was wondering. Could you post answer here?

Thanks!

Claudia Davila (Fran) said...

Hi Leslie! Thanks for your comment and question. In my opinion (which is not professional, strictly based on personal experience), our imbalances change day to day so we are our best judge of what we need to do to balance ourselves. Got pimples or getting angry at stuff? Balance Pitta. Feeling lethargic and craving sweet snacks? Balance Kapha. Etc. This is what I'm doing for myself, but with the knowledge that Pitta is my predominant element.

That said, if there is a chronic or long-lived condition that one needs healing, it can be a very complex situation with deep rooted causes or specific organ imbalances that is best treated with a professional Ayurvedic practitioner.

Hope this helps! :) ~Claudia

Dirty Eraser said...

Oh my goodness, I love your website! Such a wonderful resource of the Ayurvedic lifestyle. I am always on the lookout for yummy balancing dishes (I am a pitta/vata).

Hello, i stumbled upon your website while searching what Kapha was. i am as described a kapha. i am a 48 year old female about 15 lbs overweight and just found out i have insulin resistance. i am wondering if following the way kapha says i should eat i might find help with both the weight and insulin resistance. Can you tell me how can i find a sample of what a daily menu would be? this is all very confusing to me. i am however very interested in all i have read. Thank you for taking the time.

Claudia Davila (Fran) said...

Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm over my site! To the last anonymous poster, I absolutely think that following a Kapha diet (and lifestyle!) will help both your weight and insulin issues. Ideally you could find an ayurvedic practitioner to visit for a personalized regimen. Otherwise, consider getting a good book to help you along. I recommend "Ayurvedic Cooking For Westerners", by Amadea Morningstar -- you can get this on Amazon. "Eat-Taste-Heal" by Thomas Yarema looks very promising though I haven't read it. If you don't have access to a practitioner, I think getting a good book or two will really help. Best of luck!

Hi,
I am Vegan and allergic to soy and Omega 3 (Flaxseed, Rapeseed etc.). I have found some of your Vegan Recipies OK (Not cooked any yet as just found blog).

What can I use instead of Soy, Soy Sauce, Tofu & Flaxseed?

If you are allergic to Omega 3 (Rapeseed Oil, Flaxseed Oil,etc.) and are OK with Omega 6 (Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil) you can use it to replace Omega 3 (Rapeseed Oil, Flaxseed Oil).

Thank you for sharing your passion with the world and making it a better place for everyone!

Anonymous said...

Glad to find your webpage. The tough part about this is that I am a kapha and he is a vata. I m the one who cooks and making two different variations on most recipes is tough when you are on a VERY tight food budget.

Claudia said...

To the Kapha Vata household, you do have one thing in common: you need food with heat! Try making one meal for both of you where compromises are made. For instance, cook millet (good for Kaphas) with well-cooked sweet potato and other Vata foods, and spice up with Kapha and Vata spices like ginger, cumin, coriander, etc. Keep it low-fat and low-salt for Kapha, and then at the table Vata can add some ghee or olive oil to the meal. Hope this helps!

Natasja said...

Hey Fran!! It's Natasha from Athens, Greece, a pitta-kapha gal! Ayurveda has been a part of my everyday life for the past year and I'm also practising its therapeutic art of massage.

Keep up the very good work!

Fran! LOVE your recipes! Do you have any advice for a vata living with a kapha? I'm a little confused on how to meet both our needs? thank you for all your time! i love you site!! :)

Claudia said...

Thanks everyone!! To the last anonymous message: vatas and kaphas have "cold" in common, so if you make foods with "heat" (ie. heating spices like ginger and chilis and so many others, and/or eating hot foods rather than cold), that goes a long way. Err on the side of making kapha-friendly foods, do which the vata can add ghee or healthy oils, etc. I hope this gives some idea of a common direction! See if you can find recipes for vata-kaphas, too. :-)

Thanks anonymous and Mehill! To find wheat free recipes, just go to any recipe you want and see what the substitution recommendations are. Or always substitute wheat flour for your dosha-friendly flour. Hope this helps!

jodyjael.blogspot.com/ said...

I just finished reading, "The Guru in You," by Yogi Cameron. It certainly answered so many questions I've been asking for such a long time. Ayurveda is very new to me and it is a lifestyle I am ready for. I have a Vata dosha, and it describes me to a 't'.
The only thing is his book doesn't have recipes. And so I've been surfing the internet and I have found really good sites. Yours in particular is wonderful because of all the delicious recipes. I can't wait to try them. Thanks so much.

Hi Fran, I've taken some of those "what's your Dosha quizes" and get varied results. When they ask questions likE do I have thin, early grey hair or thick wavy hair for example: I have thick, straight hair, some premature grey and a few thin areas so not sure how to best answer that question. There are other questions like that. Is there a way to approach these questions to get a better idea what "type" I am?

i! I am Gabriel Nelson from USA,You guys cast a Retrieve A Lover Spell for me back in February. And I'd like to thank you for it. My ex and I have been back together for a month now. And it's been even better than before. I think this time it's forever. We've been talking of moving in together, and maybe getting married in the future. Things between us are great. I thank you for helping to bring him back to me. After our time apart, we've learned to appreciate each other more, and not take anything for granted. Thank you. Prophet after trying and failling through other spell casters and witch doctors i had lost hope , but i thank God for giving me the ability to find you to solve my problems i now can't imagine that my business is doing better than i thought and i will always live to praise you, i recommend any of you who is passing through my old situation to contact the great spell caster on email oodliaspelltemple@gmail.com

My name is Camille bruno Valdez my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; arewaspecialisttemple@yahoo.com, for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: arewaspecialisttemple@yahoo.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine
