Ayurvedic Pizza

Submitted by dave on Sat, 01/24/2009 - 4:36pm

Is there such a thing as Ayurvedic Pizza? Today I undertook to make a Kapha-balancing Pizza and it turned out wonderful. Here's the story.

It is spring allergy season where I live. The trees are already giving off lots of pollen. At this time of the year I follow an Ayurvedic diet emphasizing foods that are good for Kapha types. In Ayurveda there are three "body types", Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The Kapha type, if out of balance, tends toward spring allergies. Allergies run in my family and I have had lifelong issues with them. My best results in managing my allergies have come from doing two things: applying what I know about the Kapha body type, especially in my diet, and doing Serene Impulse.

Pizza is something that would normally not be healthy for me during allergy season. However, a familly member wanted pizza today, so I applied my knowledge of what foods are good for Kapha and came up with a unique pizza. It tasted wonderful. I enjoyed every bite. Here are some photos.
