Buckwheat pancakes for winter breakky

Try these banana and honey buckwheat pancakes for breakky this week! I used buckwheat flour as it is more nutrient dense than white flour. Despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat. It's a seed, which means it is gluten-free and safe for people with gluten sensitivity.

It’s also the perfect ingredient for balancing the heaviness of kapha tendency that sets in at winter-time, so is a great pantry item to have on hand when you are craving things like pancakes. Kapha dosha is increased in cold, wet and soggy weather conditions and should be monitored as we approach winter. Signs are heavy head, runny and blocked nose and ENT, fatigue.

Tea for rumbling stomachs and bloating

We’ve had a few more reports of rumbling, gurgling and churning sensations in the stomach, as well as more pronounced bloating in the last few weeks. Try this tea recipe to alleviate this condition, and also consider improving agni (digestive fire) with a modified diet and a few yogic/breathing techniques.

In general also, try to cut out any cold water consumption, avoid drinking water with meals and cut out any cold, heavy, dense, fried food.

Pre-prepare this tea (recipe below) and have it 30 minutes before or after meals.
