Delicious Strawberry Fruit Bowl – Best ayurvedic diet for Summer in Spain
An Ideal Diet for Summer in Spain
As summer heat increases in Spain, more fruits are available! Fruit is a wonderful breakfast option for the hotter seasons in Barcelona or Marbella in Spain when the Ayurvedic Agni (digestive fire) tends to be a little less strong because the body is trying to cool itself down, which takes away heat and strength from the digestive fire. The water content in the fruit also helps to keep the body adequately hydrated in the heat.
Lightly cooking fruit increases digestibility, and this summer strawberry fruit bowl guides you on how to spice and sauté your fruit for maximum flavor and optimal health benefits. Let us know if you enjoyed this fruitful, summer recipe:
