I bought an ayurvedic cook book from Germany and found this recipe which I am now eating quite a lot. Read the recipe:
1 handful of pearl barley
2 handful of pumpkin seeds (or any other seeds that suit you)
1/2 handful of porridge oats
400 ml water
1/4 tsp of turmeric
1 tbsp ghee
1/4 – 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Any sweetener like agave or maple sirup, rose jam or sugar
Soak the barley overnight, rinse 2x next morning, put in a big pot together with the seeds and the turmeric and 400 ml of water; boil for 20 min with closed lid. Add 300 ml of hot milk and oats and boil for another 30 min. The instruction are with half covered pot, but it cooks over every time, so I don’t cover it and simmer for 30 min. Add sweetener, I prefer rose jam, which is cooling:), ghee and cinnamon. Enjoy!
Barley is very full of minerals (which sharpen our senses) and silicic acid which is very beneficial for the connective tissue, hair, nails, joints and spine. Barely is very soothing for the entire digestive system, Barley is cooling.
Porridge oats are very strengthening for muscles, nervous system, brain, digestion, helps to reduce blood pressure, to up the good cholesterol. Oats is slightly warming.
Pumpkin seeds are one of the seeds that are ok for Pitta people (with lots of heat inside).
It sounds a little elaborate, but this breakfast is very gentle on the system, does make you feel full, but leaves you satisfied for hours!!! Worth while the effort.
