This bowl full of comfort is one of the oldest recorded meals on the planet. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds congee up as a “great importance and medical benefit”. Versatile and nourishing, this easily digestible meal is great as a first meal postpartum as it warms the digestive system, enhances circulation, tonifies the blood and is highly satiating. Although commonly eaten as breakfast, this porridge is tasty any time of the day.
Kitchari is a pure and balancing food. Nutrient-dense and a perfect protein, warming and easily digestible - this is the perfect thing to stock up on. Much the like the congee, it can be cooked with rotating seasonal vegetables and spices and has a lot of flexibility to add more spice and change things around. There are a zillion kitchari recipes. Pretty straightforward to prepare - just soak the rice and mung the night before and rinse them really well.
The cornerstone of a good day is a balanced morning meal. Grounding oats are rich in nutrients, hearty energy and eternally flexible.
