An Online Ayurveda Summit! So exciting!

AyurvedaLogo_500

Hello beautiful ones!

Ayurveda is a sacred beautiful science that looks at health from a holistic perspective – dealing with you as a whole being acknowledging your body, mind and spirit as being important equal factors that need nurturing and attention.

This science is vast, expansive, endlessly wise and deeply nourishing… deeply!

There a many great teachers of Ayurveda in the world, however sometimes it can be hard to know where to start when you want to begin learning, growing, understanding and delving into the magic (and yumminess within) that ayurvedic medicine has to offer.

I am often asked what books or teachers I recommend to study with. I feel it is a very personal, individual journey and that finding the right teacher/mentors to suit you as an individual is vital in that learning process. Trust your intuition and see who you are drawn too.

The first book on Ayurveda I ever read (and still love to open up and read to this day) is a beautiful little book by an incredible Doctor and teacher, Dr. Vasant Lad. I have admired and devoured Dr.Lad’s writing for years now… his text books are incredible and everything of his that I’ve ever read, watched or listened to has inspired me deeply.

If you want to know where to start on your Ayurvedic journey, I highly recommend his book; “Ayurveda: The Science of Life”. It’s an easy, inspiring and beautiful read.

There are many, many other great teachers and Doctors who I have sat with, listened too, watched, marvelled at and read.

Coming up this week – starting tomorrow is a super exciting and great event happening online – globally called The Ayurveda Summit.

A bunch of the most inspiring, wise and experienced Ayurvedic practitioners and Doctors are presenting over the Summit that goes for the next week and all the talks can be streamed online for free!

I just found out about this great even happening and for the love of Ayurveda – I just had to post about it to let you know incase you would love to tap into what they have on offer.

The link to register for this amazing free event is here – click below and prepare a nice cup of warm turmeric chai (recipe on my blog!) and sit back to receive the goodness on offer. :)

Dr.Vasant Lad (one of my Ayurvedic hero’s!) is presenting a talk during the summit along with one of my current teachers in Ayurvedic Digestion & Nutrition, John Immel from Joyful Belly Ayurveda, Dr.Robert Svoboda (amazing), Dr.Cladia Welch (incredible) and many many more super Ayurveda wise men and women!

Ayurveda is so magical. I personally fall in love with the wisdom and beauty present within Ayurveda more and more each day… and I started off head over heals (over 10 years ago now!) …the love is still growing, the inspiration is still dripping from my wholesome kitchen walls and …well, only God knows where this sacred, divine, nourishing and inspiring love affair with the knowledge and science of life will grow to as the love continues to grow… :) This science is endless – infinite and goes straight to the core of why we are here, what we are doing, our purpose, our health, wealth, love, relationships, food, nutrition and connection to the divine.

Perhaps we will share in some virtual sips of chai from our cosy homes during the next week of the Summit… :) Enjoy if you get to tap in and listen.

P.S. I have some juicy exciting ‘Wholesome Loving Goodness’ news for you real soon and a free webinar coming up that I will be announcing soon where we can sip chai together and talk all things digestion, ayurvedic cooking, nutrition, self-love, health, lifestyle and soul ! Keep your eye on your inbox! :)

Much love! :)

Wholesome Spring Ayurvedic ‘Green + Gold Soup’ Recipe!

wlg_vegie_souplay

The chill of winter is starting to fade as the sun begins to rise a little earlier each morning; set a little later each evening and transition back to summer.

Spring is the beautiful in-between season that allows us to slowly say goodbye to winters woolly-weeks and hello to the sprouting fresh blossoms of spring.

In Ayurvedic medicine spring is a very important time of the year for paying attention to the body and practicing mindfulness towards our food and daily activities. With the start of warmer weather, our bodies know that it is time to ‘lighten-up’, cleanse, purify and clear the decks of one season to make room for the next. We go from hibernation mode to being engaged and more easily outward in the world.

In summary: having the awareness and capacity for being able to adapt to the changing environment around you is key factor in maintaining a balances, healthy strong body and mind.

Health is a state of inner-balance!

One of the best ‘foodie’ ways to specifically nourish, balance and gently cleanse your body during Spring is to eat warm, light, easy to digest foods such as Soup!

In the spirit of spring I have prepared a special soup recipe for you to get you on your soupy way!

Stay in tune with your body, spring-clean, dance in the sun and eat soup!

wholesomespringsoup_lorienwaldronrecipes_web

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • spices: 1 tsp of each; cumin, coriander & ¼ tsp fennel seeds

  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric finely chopped & ½ tsp of turmeric powder
  • 1 leak chopped
  • 1 zucchini chopped into small pieces
  • 1 small head of broccoli chopped into pieces

  • 1 cup of pumpkin chopped into cubes
  • 1 cup of green beans chopped small
  • 1 handful of chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 cups of boiling water
  • 1 tsp of sea salt
  •  ¼ tsp black pepper

Creating your soup:

  1. Place a spoon of ghee into your pot on a medium heat and stir in cumin, coriander and fennel seeds.
  2. Stir in fresh ginger, turmeric, turmeric powder and chopped leek; toasting for 2-3 minutes to coat your ingredients in the ghee and spices.
  3. Add your vegetables: zucchini, celery, pumpkin, green beans, broccoli and stir them into the spices.
  4. Add 4 cups of boiling water, sea salt, black pepper and fresh coriander.
  5. Place the lid on and let simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes or until your vegies are soft and cooked.
  6. Serve in your favourite bowl with a garnish of fresh coriander and a few extra cracks of pepper & sea salt to taste.

I hope you enjoy this delicious simple soupy recipe as much as I enjoyed shopping for these seasonal fresh organic ingredients and making it!

Wishing you and your family a beautiful spring!

Wholesome Love & Yumminess!

Autumn Equinox

Since the first of March, according to the western calendar year, Summer was ‘officially’ over and Autumn had begun.

What!? Autumn! …It still feels like Summer!

On the first day of Autumn however, I found myself at the beach, taking respite in the cool waters of the ocean and enjoying the warm air ~ delicious fresh Papaya by the spoonful and long summer-love-story short, …it certainly STILL felt like Summer!

That is because the seasons don’t stop and start like a machine. Just like we don’t stop and start (when living in balance) like a machine. We are alive, breathing beings, organic in our true nature. Mother nature and her seasons are the same, really we are mini living manifestations of her divine creation. That is a whole other exciting ‘macrocosm’, ‘microcosm’ conversation though… Back to the seasons. Mother nature and her seasons are gradual and as such we must allow ourselves to gradually adapt during a seasonal juncture in order to rebalance to our new and changing environment as well as allow for our bodies and minds to cleanse from the previous season to create a clear fresh space that is appropriate for the current season that is beginning.

Autumn brings an increase in the air + ether elements, (Vata). 

As the cooler air and wind causes the leaves to dry and then fall to the ground. There is a ‘dryer’ and less humid quality to the air as we shift from the heat and moisture of summer to the slightly cooler movement, via wind of Autumn. The earth beginning to prepare for winter!

Seasons are so beautiful, they show us that everything grows, transforms, cycles and evolves… And for harmony to be maintained, this cycle and process must continue ~ year, after year, after year!

Change is what is always constant! It is a blessing and time of ritual and ceremony in many traditional cultures, where the people honour the sacred earth elements.

At all seasonal junctions through out the year, it is important to take extra care of yourself and to listen to your bodies needs as the environment around you shifts.

To balance your Vata, you must respond and adapt your lifestyle habits and routine to suit and harmonise with the changing environment around you.

You may find yourself eating less, eating lighter foods, warmer foods, more nourishing foods and even wearing different clothes as the climate changes, even just subtly.

The official Autumn Equinox 

Yesterday, the 21st of march marked the autumn equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. Equinox meaning ‘equal’ light and dark. From yesterday onwards we will move from having more light and warmth in each day to slightly less as we glide into winter. The opposite is occurring in the northern hemisphere as they move towards the warmth and longer days.

Ayurvedic medicine places great significance on seasonal change as it is important that way have the tools and knowledge to align and re-balance during the various transitions and changes in life for the health of our body, mind and spirit, our optimum wellness.

Spices in the garden

3 Simple Lifestyle Tips for Seasonal Change you can do at home: 

My top #3 Ayurvedic Lifestyle tips for you to smoothly navigate and re-balanced during this seasonal juncture that we are in right now are…

#1 Make sure you give your body adequate rest, I’m talking 7-8 hours sleep each night so your body can rejuvenate and balance out during the night. (I went to bed at 9pm last night and it felt amazing!!!)

#2 Eat warm, light meals to give your digestion a little rest, think soups, kitchari, stewed fruit, steamed vegies… Warm and simple. This is also a great time to do a mini cleanse or soup/kitchari fast for 2-5 days. The best time of year for it! (I made a pot of Kitchari yesterday and have fasted on Kitchari and fresh Papaya during the day today, feels amazing and so great to have a little digestion re-set!)

#3 Drink warm water and warm herbal teas in place of cold drinks during the day, night and first thing in the morning to gently cleanse your digestive system, support your agni, (digestive fire) and ground your mind and body due to the relaxing and healing qualities of warm h20! (I carry a 1 litre thermal drink bottle with me everywhere, filled with warm water so it is easy for me to stay hydrated and drink warm water wherever I am. The best invention ever. Warm water really makes a difference!)

That’s it. Simple awareness of your body, mind, spirit and breath at all times in life ensures balance and harmony to reside within you and allows your bodies natural innate intelligence to shine, re-balance, heal and guide you on your journey inside and out.

Love your body and listen to it’s callings… 

Happy Autumn Equinox beautifuls!

With love and all things yummy and wholesome,

The most nourishing part of Christmas however was the precious time spent relaxing and blissing out in the summer sunshine with family! 

So much love and endless gratitude from my heart.

May deep nourishment, joy and peace ripple out to one and all!

Bliss-ings & Bless-ings!

Namaste,

Vatta Balancing for the Festive Season

“It is better to travel well than to arrive”.

 -Buddha

W-o-w-e-e-e ! :)

This is my official way of saying, ‘wholly molly, we are almost at the end of this calendar year- 2014’!

The spring air is warm and strong northerly winds are blowing out all the cobwebs from Winter. There is movement.

Jacarandas blossoming, animals coming out of hibernation to bask in the sun, frangipani shoots sprouting! Spring is certainly in full swing here in Australia.

Similarly,  the air is crisp and fresh, evenings are cool and the flowers are tucking themselves into bed for the winter in the northern hemisphere. (I have family in Canada who give me this inside info!) :-)

There is seasonal change happening everywhere! :) And it’s a glorious thing! Without these changes and cycles, we would not experience the richness and beauty that Mother Nature has to offer in all of her forms and expressions.

Vatta, the element of Air + Ether is present during seasonal change as well as times of the year where there is more activity happening – such as the holiday season.

In my personal experience and observation, seasonal change combined with the busyness leading up to Christmas/New Years can have us feeling:

‘Crazy, frantic, hurried, rushed, and scattered!’

We move fast to get things done, resulting in being short tempered and feisty when things get out of control.

Self-care, proper nourishment, meditation practice, time for rest and proper sleep are all things that can very easily slip by the wayside when there is so much to do and so much happening.

It’s tough to keep the balance!

Ironically, these are the very things we need to be doing – more than ever!

This time of year it is important to ~ ‘slow down’…

These might seem like ghastly words to hear – when your social calendar is filled every weekend until Christmas and your diary is bursting with ‘to do’ lists that scream at you every day.

Trust me on this one though…

Taking a moment to apply some ‘slow down’ to your day, will have you feeling more like this:

Energised, calm, centered, empowered and on-top of it all! You’ll stand out at the Christmas parties, as people will notice that you did something different this year. You don’t look frazzled. You are poised and calm, centered and glowing. You are radiantly grinning and proud of yourself for being peacefully productive this ‘silly’ season. :)

In Ayurvedic medicine, health is all about balance. Any type of change we experience – such as the change of season or a busy period in life can aggravate the ‘Air’ element of the body, known as Vatta Dosha. Vata loves regularity, stillness and warmth. When the weather is windy, irregular, too hot or too cold and dry – Vatta can get upset and start to run a muck! The busyness of this time of year can throw this element out of whack. The good news is that it’s easily balanced and corrected;

~5 Simple Vatta Balancing Lifestyle Tips~

1. Drink Warm Water & Nourish Yourself:

Wake up and drink 2-4 cups of freshly boiled warm water with a slice of fresh ginger. This will warm your digestion and activate your parasympathetic nervous system, allowing you to start your day in a relaxed way. It’s the best!

Make sure you take some time to nourish your body. Start the day with a yummy grounding porridge, buckwheat pancakes or veggie soup! Look after your precious body on the inside and out.

2. Stretch/Move Your Body Daily:

In your room or lounge-room, move your body. Raise your arms up above your head and reach to the heavens.  Stretch your body, breathing with your movement, becoming one with your body :).  Move, unwind, and tune in. Do this for a minimum of 10 minutes. Stretching opens the body and allows us to be in tune and feel good in our skin. Movement releases endorphins (happy chemicals) in the brain, making you feel good. After moving the body it is much easier to sit in stillness and focus within to de-stress through meditation.

3. Meditate/Sit and Be with Your-self:

Find a comfy cushion, bolster, blanket or towel to sit on. Sit on the edge so that your knees are lower than your hips. If you are new to the concept of meditation, don’t worry. Everyone starts somewhere and now is the perfect time to begin. Sit with your spine straight to allow for proper flow of energy, then close down your eyes and simply focus on your breath. Allow thoughts to come and go. They are not important here. All that is important is your breath, and your focus inward. If you can do this for at least 10 min at the start of your day, it will set the scene for a peacefully productive day ahead. Meditation is transformational.

4. Massage Your Feet/Body 3 times per week:

Cold pressed Black sesame oil is traditionally the Ayurvedic oil of choice. If you don’t have it though, you can use organic cold pressed olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil. To prepare the oil for your self-massage, simply warm your oil by placing the bottle in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes. Before you have your shower, massage the oil into your body. Oil is beautifully grounding and balancing. Your skin will eat it up and your nerves will too. Do this for 5 minutes then rinse off in a warm shower.

5. Take Some Deep Breathes:

Before you go out for the day and get into your work or your tasks… take 6 deep breathes. Write a note to yourself in your diary to remind you to move slowly. Remember that you don’t need to be superman or superwoman. You simply need to do your best and do everything with love. If there are things on your to do list that are not high priorities, then cross them off. Free up your time so you can focus on a realistic list of things to achieve. This is a hard one for the high achievers. You can do it though. :) There are 12 months next year to complete those tasks. Remember, there is no rush, everything in life happens in divine timing.

This season is all about looking after YOU – so that you can show up being present, clear and loving with your friends and family.

After all this is what is most important. Not how much we did, but how present we were.

“You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

– Kahil Gibran

 Be generous this holiday season, fill your own cup so that you can share abundantly with those around you!

…Remember, nothing great is every built overnight. It is regula and consistent acts of love, that contribute to creating long-term health, wellness and joy inside! 

 Shine on!

x Love, Lorien

Ayurvedic Adzuki Quinoa Protein Bowl Recipe

This dish is a simple and delicious vegetarian double protein meal that is light, nourishing and grounding for the digestion. Perfect for Spring, when fasting on soups might be getting a bit boring. Do not fear. Adzuki Protein bowl is here to the rescue!

The secret to making this dish easy to put together is to have the Adzuki and Quinoa pre-cooked.

Adzuki beans take longer than most other pulses that I use in my cooking. They are so lovely as a change of ‘food’ scenery and are well worth the extra effort.

To save time:

  • Boil your Adzuki beans in hot water on a medium heat the night before. Allow approx 1-2 hours of cooking time. Every batch of Adzuki will be different. Some take more or less time to cook. Once you have them cooked. Time to cook your Quinoa. 
  • Rince your Quinoa then place in your pot. For every cup of Quinoa, add approx 2 cups of boiling water. Once you add the water, do not touch. No need to stir. Let the Quinoa steam the same way you would cook rice. Check from time to time and add more water if you see it is necessary. Now that your beans and Quinoa is cooked. The rest is a piece of cake! 

Serves approx 2 – 2.5 people :) :

Organic Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of cooked Adzuki beans
  • 1 cup of cooked Quinoa; white, red, black or mixed
  • Fresh Ginger
  • Spices: Tumeric, Coriander, Cummin
  • Ghee or Coconut oil
  • Fresh Coriander
  • Unhulled Tahini
  • Avocado
  • Celtic sea salt + Black pepper
  • Boiling water
  • Love! (Magic ingredient)

Creation process: 

  1. In your pot add 1-2 tbsp’s of Ghee or Coconut oil.
  2. Add 1/2 tsp of Coriander seeds, 1/2 tsp Cummin seeds and 1 tsp of fresh ginger. Toast these spices together, allowing them to sizzle and expand, then add 1/2 tsp of Tumeric powder and stir. (Onion and Garlic can be added here also/optional).
  3. Now add your pre-cooked Adzuki beans and stir.
  4. Add your Quinoa and mix the beans and Quinoa together, allowing the spices to absorb and soak in. Will be smelling really good by now!
  5. Add a pinch of salt and a few cracks of black pepper.
  6. Your dish is ready to be served. I know… could a dish that is so good, really be so easy!? …In this case, yes. :)
  7. Serve in your bowl of choice. Add a drizzle of tahini with a spoon, then a hearty pinch of freshly chopped Coriander. Slice your Avo in half, then into quarters and scoop the fruit out or leave it in its shell for a more ‘rustic’ presentation.
  8. Now, enjoy! Congratulations on preparing a hearty, nourishing, soulful dish that your body and mind will love!

Yum. Yay. You did it!

Happy nourishing & soulful eating friends!
