Hi there!

Congrats on taking the first step to improving your health! I think you will love this free ayurvedic meal plan for Vata.

This Ayurveda menu was carefully designed for your Vata dosha, which is often aggravated by the qualities of:

  • Dryness
  • Lightness
  • Coldness
  • Roughness
  • Agitation

These qualities lead to fear, anxiety, and indecisiveness. Physically, if unchecked, you can become prompt to developing diseases of the nervous system, insomnia, tremors, epilepsy, chronic constipation, and arthritis.

This wonderful, light, yet grounding meal plan helps pacify the aggravated Vata dosha while rekindling your Agni or digestive fire. The core of our health relies on our digestion, and so by eating an anti-Vata diet you will gradually return to a state of homeostasis and balance.

THE INGREDIENTS

In this meal plan you will find that all ingredients are whole foods that come from Mother Nature.

Nothing is processed.

No animal products.

Diet is the most important long-term physical factor needed to restore your health. Therefore, by eating foods that are wholesome and preferably organic you will recreate your body and will be able to enjoy health and longevity.

You can find the oatmeal recipe in the FREE 7-day meal plan for Vata dosha down below.

VATA MEAL PLAN INSTRUCTIONS

A nutritive, strengthening, calming, and grounding diet is best for Vata people.

Food should be warm, heavy, and moist.

Make sure that you establish a time for your meals and stick to it to promote regularity.

Avoid cold water. It will destroy your Agni and weaken your digestion. At this time of healing, it is crucial that you have strong digestive fire.

The tastes that you should favor are: sweet, sour, and salty.

Spices to cook with in generous amounts are: asafoetida, rock salt, garlic, ginger, cumin, fennel, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, and ajwan.

Try to choose all ingredients organic, if possible.

Intermittent Fasting: With my clients I implement Intermittent Fasting which is wonderful to drop insulin levels, promote cellular repair and create positive changes in genes and molecules that increase longevity and resistance to disease. In addition, adhering to Intermittent Fasting helps with weight loss and heart health.

I highly encourage you to follow this plan using an Intermittent Fasting protocol. That means, eating all meals in an eating window of 12 hours and fasting -just water- in a fasting window of 12 hours. For example, if you have your first meal at 8am, your last meal should be at 8pm.

The quantity? Make sure you eat at 70-75% of your capacity.

To drink? Vata tea or ginger tea with meals and throughout the day.

If you want to do it strictly vegan, then change the ghee for coconut, olive, or avocado oil and the milk for almond or coconut milk.

If you don’t find or don’t like:

  • Basmati rice — Switch for organic white rice
  • Yellow split mung dal — Switch for red lentils
  • Tur dal — Switch for green lentils
  • Okra — Switch for zucchini or yellow squash
  • Ghee — Coconut, olive, or avocado oil
  • Milk — Almond or coconut milk
