Ayurveda on eating disorders

A lot has been going on. It's hard to put in words, I have been re-writing this sentence several times now. Part of me wants to tell the whole story, another part doesn't think it's relevant for anyone but me (maybe that's true, or maybe that's just the part talking that is reluctant to show … Continue reading Ayurveda on eating disorders


Food fight | She’s lost control again …

I really should have written this one on Thursday, when "everything" happened but it got late, and I had to get up early on Friday (yesterday was my first day without a post - thanks, real world with money and work and stuff). As I feared, I really don't feel like writing about it anymore … Continue reading Food fight | She’s lost control again …

No poo – tested for you

Well, ok, it wasn't a completely selfless act, I do dig these kind of diys. I have been meaning to write this post since last Wednesday (that's when I tried some recipes) but I wanted to wait till I had some pictures. As most of the times, I am not completely happy with them but … Continue reading No poo – tested for you

Ginger – my best f(r)iend

After having had the most horrible stomach aches after pretty much every meal for two weeks now, I finally seem to have found the root of all evil: my beloved ginger!? First off, yes, I am aware of the irony of me being on such a health trip, and at the same time not really … Continue reading Ginger – my best f(r)iend

What’s your morning routine?

Do you get up just in time to throw on some clothes, leave for work, and maybe grab some coffee on the way? Do you get up early so you can take your time and wake up slowly, read the paper, and eat breakfast at home? What does your morning look like? I have always … Continue reading What’s your morning routine?

Which is your dominant dosha?

Here comes some of that "basic Ayurveda stuff" I have been meaning to write about. I have been using terms such as "Pitta", "dosha" and "dominant dosha" without actually explaining them. Maybe you've looked them up yourself, maybe you just overread them. The ten pairs of gunas Ayurveda is much about qualities (gunas) of things, … Continue reading Which is your dominant dosha?

Show me your true colors

Part of me wants to just continue with an entry about my spring cleaning mission, post a picture about how great everything looks. That wouldn't even be untrue, since it does look a lot better in comparison. Looks can be deceiving, if anyone knows, then it's bloggers and readers of blogs, right? It is easy, … Continue reading Show me your true colors

Spring cleaning pt. 1

The urge to spring clean has overcome me early this year. And I am not even going to work my way up, I am going to start with the kitchen. Cleaning, and rearranging, and throwing out stuff we never use, and all that jazz. So, you probably won't hear from me the rest of the … Continue reading Spring cleaning pt. 1

A Science of Sleep

My infatuation with Ayurveda still feels new, it's only been a few weeks. That's why it's so amazing to me that it already has made such a huge impact on my life. The biggest change Ayurveda has led me to - perhaps like a lot of significant changes - is concerning something seemingly banal: my … Continue reading A Science of Sleep

Quick home-made Ayurvedic herbal tea

The Ayurveda book that I like the most out of the bunch I picked up at the library is Judith H. Morrison's The Book of Ayurveda. It gives a great overview over pretty much all aspects of life, has lots of info boxes and lists, which appeals to me. I found a simple recipe for … Continue reading Quick home-made Ayurvedic herbal tea
