Ayurveda Breakfast Omelet

Here’s a hearty Ayurveda breakfast omelet recipe. Easier to digest than traditional hard boiled egg, and nourishing to our muscle, fat and nerve tissues.

In Ayurveda, eggs are considered a muscle tonic, to help build semen and stamina, to promote virility, a skin tonic and highly nutritive.

The ayurvedic properties of eggs are Pitta (fire/water) and Kapha (water/earth) increasing and Vata (air/space) reducing.

Egg yolks are high in cholesterol.

Egg whites only are tridosha balancing – does not cause any imbalance to any consitution.

Pitta imbalance – As egg yolk are a little heating it is best to limit intake for pitta individuals or imbalances or opt for egg white omelet instead.

Cholesterol imbalance – please seek advise from a health practitioner for guidance on egg consumption.
