6-Flavor Slimming Breakfast Sundae PRINT
Ayurveda is all about balance, and this breakfast parfait is the perfect balance of key flavors – sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent. The first four are quite common, but ayurvedic medicine also considers pungent and astringent tastes very important to treat cravings in a healthy way. Making sure all 6 flavors are incorporated into every meal helps to ensure brain signals are adequately met and you’re left feeling satisfied.
