Today I’d like to tell you why mungs beans should be an integral part of your diet. This delightful legume is tri-doshic, soothing all three doshas and is also Sattvic - meaning that it has a balancing and cleansing effect on the mind and the body. In Ayurveda, it is considered a food of the highest quality.

In addition, mung beans are one of the highest forms of plant based proteins and causes no ill effect on the stomach such as gas build up or indigestion (if soaked and cooked properly). ⁣

Mung beans are an alkaline food which contain high quantities of all the goodies like calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. They are also rich in Vitamin C and have lots of lovely dietary fibre.⁣

Best ways to consume them? Stayed tuned for some more recipes, but mung beans can be the legume used in my Kale and Sweet Potato Curry. They also make a most delicious daal and you can sprout them too.

As always, you have any questions or need further support with your healing journey, please don't hesitate to be in touch.
