The Healing Temple now opened its doors in California!

Posted in: Ayurveda

The Healing Temple has moved to the bay area in beautiful Menlo Park, CA!

It is with much joy and gratitude that I made this recent move to CA in order to be closer to the Kerala Academy of Ayurveda where I have just embarked on a new journey of going through the Doctor of Ayurveda Program. It will take two and a half years of phenomenal teachings, internships in the US and India, consultations, hands on work and preparing the final disertation.

Along with studying, I will continue to serve my new community being in private practice at The Healing Temple. I feel so lucky and grateful to Dr. Bill Tarr and his team at Peak Performance Chiropractic here in Menlo Park, CA, as they received me with open arms and are giving me a chance to establish my practice within theirs.

There is a lot to look forward to and to be grateful for!

On this note, I am sharing with you a recipe for a very yummy desert/snack from the vast Ayurvedic Healing Cuisine. So, here it is, the very basic Ojas  Balls

Ingredients:

5 large Majool dates, pitted

2-3 Tbs almond butter

3 tsp cultured ghee

1 handfull of any of the following: cashews, almonds, walnuts, pecans or roasted sunflower seeds

1tsp cinnamon powder

1/4 tsp grated nutmeg 

1/4 tsp cardamom powder

1tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp almond extract

1/4 cup granola ( please use a low sugar one with very few ingredients)

Directions:

Blend the granola, spices, extracts and the nuts until the granola is almost like flour and the nuts are chunky.

Chop the dates in small pieces. Add the almond butter and the ghee to the granola mixture. Using your hands, combine all ingredients as if kneading cookie dough.

If the mixture is too dry, add more ghee. If it is too wet, add more granola.

Turn the mix into individual balls. Place them in a glass container/jar and chill for 1 hour. 

Before serving, let them get to room temperture and enjoy with your favorite tea or as a snack!
