Spring Cleaning the Ayurvedic Way

[singlepic id=40 w=600]

I believe that a little spring cleaning is good for the body as well as the home. But my past attempts at de-gunking the plumbing haven’t always been successful. Whether it be through herbal teas, fasting or a bottle of colon blow, I lack the mental fortitude required to see things through to the end.

Either that or I just plain cave when the suggestion (inevitably) arises to get a pizza and pour a glass of wine.

Lucky for me I have a friend named Amita who practices Ayurveda and has put together a nice little package that makes it so much easier to get my cleanse on.

I’m only on day 2, which starts with a couple teaspoons of melted ghee (along with breakfast), and a nice helping of Kicharee (pictured above) split between lunch and dinner. The hardest part is refraining from snacking.

Day 3 and 4 increases the morning ghee, and there’s a fast at the end of day 4 leading up to the “big event” on day 5. I promise not to elaborate on that here. You’ll just have to call Ami if you want the details.
