Winter Porridge


Self-care morning rituals should help you to have a smooth start into the day and give your Agni a gentle start. Breakfast can be broken down into 2 words: Break + fast, looking at it in that way you gently wanna break the fast since this will probably be the first meal in your stomach since yesterday’s meal. Ayurveda aims at feeding and nourishing the body and mind to have sharp senses and a sharp focus.


To give yourself an easy start into the day start with a warm porridge, well spiced and cooked fruits. I have published an article on Food combinations, which clearly states that raw fruit shouldn’t be mixed with anything :)
