Be Healthy. Be Happy. Naturally.
Kitchari is a nourishing, cleansing, and easy to digest dish made of mung beans, basmati rice, ghee and spices. A staple food in Asia, kitchari is often the first food fed to babies and is eaten when someone is ill, weak or recovering from illness. It is easy and inexpensive to make. The first time I ate kitchari, my body went "yes! I want more of this!" Kitchari heals and soothes the digestive tract by allowing it to rest while still providing the nutrition our bodies need to heal itself. You can choose to eat kitchari for a single meal, an entire day, or do a short three to five day cleanse by mono-fasting on kitchari. Kitchari is used exclusively in Ayurveda’s wonderful deep detoxification and rejuvenation treatment program called panchakarma. I will share more information about panchakarma in another article.
