A few words from Janet –  Feeling excited

Picture of Janet GomezHello {!firstname_fix}!

How are you?
A big thank you to those of you who continue to contact me to ask about consultations, cooking classes, yoga classes and generally how I am.

I  continue on my journey of full-time study and am now in the second year of the degree in nursing started in September 2015. I have exams in a month’s time and a hospital work placement straight after. But I couldn’t wait to share the news with you that the English version of my book has now been published. I’m truly grateful to all who have supported me on this part of my journey.

In this newsletter’s article I’m  sharing an extract from an article on Ayurveda I wrote last year for the magazine “Yogalife” magazine and a Spring recipe from my book “Plans for an Ayurvedic dinner?”

Client’s Coaching –Ayurveda and Spring

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda (ayur meaning “life” and veda meaning “wisdom”) is considered the oldest medical system in the world. It has its origins in the ancient Vedic writings of India dating back over 5000 years. This “science of life” offers a unique system based on an in-depth study of (our) nature and on  its  particular  features  to maintain life through form and promote health through, among other things, diet.
In Ayurveda, diet is the most important factor to prevent disease and increase energy and health. Individuals eat to enhance their sense of balance, particularly with optimal digestion, by choosing food appropriate for their constitution. The result is a clear mind and more energy to enjoy the chosen lifestyle.Spring is the season of kapha. Cold and damp continue to dominate, but there is also a certain amount of movement. It is a good time to use the rising energy of spring to clear out on a physical and emotional level.
Use warming spices, like cloves, turmeric, fresh ginger, and chillies (in moderation), to speed up circulation. Enjoy lighter, easily digested foods in the morning and evening and fresh, organic, local produce, where possible. Include cooked foods, warm or at room temperature, and some raw foods towards the end of spring.

Simple Spring Sunflower seed sauce
Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
125 g sunflower seeds
8 tbsps olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon

Salt (to taste)
2 tbsps chopped ginger
Black pepper

  1. Rinse the sunflower seeds and soak overnight in water.
  2. Place sunflower seeds, oil, lemon juice, salt and ginger in a  blender.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Add extra oil if you prefer a thinner sauce.
  5. Add freshly ground black pepper and serve with a salad or homemade flatbread.

Sunflower seeds contain minerals, in particular calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. After being soaked overnight in water, the sprouting process begins and they are easier to digest.
