  • Diet for Vata constitution

    Thank yu very much for joining me

    I am new in this forum and I hope I have found the right place

    I am following a vegan diet to cure my acid reflux, following the book by Dr Gabriel Causens "Coincious Eating" and the dosha closer to me I think is Vata constitution

    I am looking for a good support forum to help me with my journey towards a healthy life

    I have my breakfast with oatmeal blended with figs, or dates along with some nutmeg and cinnamon ado

    Than I eat bananas, oranges, avocado and sometimes some almonds in small amount, trying always to not to mix them

    In addition I have my breakfast about 2 hours and half after I got up and I never have a meal late in the night

    I would like to learn more about sprouting, for black wild rice and amaranth

    Thank you in advance for your support

    From a simple perspective, management for vata types is centered around principles of:
    – Warming
    – Moistening and
    – Weight promoting

    Several considerations for helping to balance vata types:
    - eat more warm, brothy and easily digestible foods
    - eat at regular times to help promote balance in life
    - avoid stimulating foods [i.e. coffee, tea, tabaco and spicy foods]
    - avoid foods which are dry, cold, and light
    - consider eating more ‘healthy oils’ [ghee, flax, hemp, sesame]

      I have started a Vata promoting diet and see that the internet has a lot of conflicting information on what to include/omit. For example, high quality baked wheat foods such as muffins are allowed on one website and another says it's a banned food...Which list should I refer to?
