Greetings from the Sacred Valley of Peru!
Oh how I love the food of Peru! Whole, nutritious, hearty fare. I spend quite a lot of time in the markets and in my kitchen when I'm down here each year. In today’s blog, I invite you to check out my best Peruvian breakfast:
Andean super-grains porridge and tropical green smoothie
Saludos from Pisac, Peru! I am down here in Sacred Valley of Peru for six weeks. In my upcoming blogs, I’ll be sharing wisdom and photos from this beautiful corner of the world.
If you have been following me, you have probably noticed that for the past year or so, I have been talking and teaching about daily rhythm and healthy habits through Ayurveda. I have been on a personal mission to up-level my own and my family’s daily rhythm. As many of you know, my family spends time each year in a rural area in the Peruvian Andes. Here people’s lives continue to be interwoven with their majestic landscape and the agrarian calendar. In many ways, it has been here in the Andes where I have learned the most about rhythm and have been most successful at aligning my body and life to the rhythms of nature, which is at the heart of the practices and teachings of Ayurveda. Of course, Ayurveda comes from India, but anyone who has traveled to a region of the world where traditional cultures are still intact will find that traditional cultures naturally sync up with nature. That is how we evolved. Humans evolved with and within the cycles and rhythms of nature.
In this blog post, I want to share the key lessons I’ve learned about daily rhythm from the people of the Andes:
