Top 10 Tips for a Guilt-Free Coffee

Enjoy your coffee with these Ayurvedic tips
1 min

Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the father of modern Ashtanga yoga used to say: “No coffee, no prana.” Since the yoga practice starts as early as 5 am in most traditional yoga studios, it makes sense to get the blood and heart going before plunging into a vigorous yoga practice.

Yet, many would argue if coffee is the best start of the day. What can we do?
As with any food or beverage, the wisdom lies in listening to what your body’s telling you taking into consideration your personal mental and physical circumstances (and your GP recommendations if any).

Here are 10 things that will help you have your morning coffee totally guilt-free:

  1. If you can afford it, choose organic coffee-beans.
  2. Opt for darker roasts - the darker the roast the lower the acidity and caffeine content.
  3. Cold brew is lower in acidity too.
  4. Avoid iced coffee - it will dampen your digestive fire. The same goes for very hot coffee.
  5. Get your warm lemon water before your coffee - it will prepare the GI tract for the fiery fuel that otherwise may plummet you into space.
  6. Sipping coffee post meal is ideal for digestion as coffee is bitter and astringent.
  7. Skip sweeteners, artificial flavors or creamers - just don’t ruin your coffee.
  8. A teaspoon of ghee or coconut oil in your morning coffee will protect your gut and will ake you nutritious especially if you are skipping real food. fatty milk does the same and Ayurveda actually recommends drinking coffee always with milk. These additions will prevent your blood sugar from dropping that is one adverse effect of drinking coffee on an empty stomach.
  9. Need it sweet? Add some maple syrup, raw honey or raw sugar.
  10. Love it spicy? Then you must love cinnamon as it is the perfect addition to your cappuccino (neutralizes the mucous-forming effect of milk). Cardamom, nutmeg and clove go well with black or white coffee.

So here is to your guilt-free cup of joy!

Abhyanga - The Self Oil Massage

There is no greater expression of self-love than lovingly anointing ourselves from head to toe with warm oil—this practice is called Abyanga. The Sanskrit word Sneha can be translated as both “oil” and “love.” It is believed that the effects of Abhyanga are similar to those received when one is saturated with love. Like the experience of being loved, Abhyanga can give a deep feeling of stability and warmth.
