Here’s a little fun Ayurvedic fact - pears are tri-doshic, harmonising all 5 elements in the body. As a fruit, it doesn’t get much better than pears to start your day. Especially when they have been warmed and lightly poached with a digestive spice support like cloves.
Morning time between the hours of 6 am and 10 am is when your digestion is at its slowest, a peak Kapha time. That’s where a light, warm, spiced and cooked breakfast is optimum. This recipe is a particularly beneficial if you are in a time of cleansing, have a Kapha imbalanced digestion, or suffering from morning sickness during pregnancy. The combination of both the pear and cloves will ease nausea, vomiting and gently ignite the digestion during all three trimesters.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
2 ripe, organic and in-season pears, cored and cut into long slices
6-8 whole cloves
Put the pears and cloves in a saucepan and fill with water approximately 1/3 full. Just enough to stop the pears sticking to the bottom.
Bring to a low simmer for 10-15 minutes with the saucepan covered partially with a lid, stirring occasionally.
Cook until the pears are softened and cooked completely.
Remove the cloves and serve immediately.
With love and light,
