Dosa Recipe & Ethel!Jan 15, 2024
I want to to introduce you to a wonderful woman named Ethel, who is part of the Vitality Circle. In this video, she explains the incredible breakthroughs she experienced during her first year in the Vitality Circle. She loved it so much she signed up for a second year.
This year is rolling and it is magical!! I was in Beaufort, NC last weekend leading the Women's Wellness New Year's Retreat (thanks to everyone who showed up whole-heartedly for that!) and this weekend I am in Abingdon, VA collaborating with an amazing crew for the Habit Makers Retreat at Whitetop Yoga! Yippie!!
Start YOUR year off with a magical bang by enrolling in the Vitality Circle!! It is never too late or too early to invest in yourself in such a powerful way.
There is never a better time than now to implement habits that result in you being your happiest and healthiest self! If you would like support in doing that, as well as 1:1 Ayurvedic counseling to help heal any health issues you may be struggling with, you are in luck! The doors to the Vitality Circle are currently open to receive the next group of women who are ready for a natural, uplifting, healing revolution within a supportive community. If you are interested, read up on the program and then schedule a clarity call with me asap. Space is limited and NOW is the time. Doors close January 31!
Once you have committed to changing some habits, you might try making some new foods!
Have you ever had a dosa? These are a great, hearty and healthy accompaniment for winter meals. Dosas are a great alternative to bread. You can eat them like a tortilla, savory crepe, or as a side with soup instead of bread. (Don’t eat them with fruit, as beans and fruit don’t digest well together).
Dosas (Ayurvedic Crepes)*
*recipe thanks to Patti Franklin, former Vitality Circle mentor
Soak for 1 hour or more (or even overnight) then rinse and put in blender.
1 c rice (I use basmati)
1 c split mung beans (yellow) or red lentils
After soaking and rinsing, add:
1-2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1-2 TBS curry powder
1.5-2 tsp fine sea salt
1.5 TBS coconut oil or ghee
Just enough water to cover the ingredients…You can always add more but you can’t take it out.
Blend all of this until it is really smooth. It needs to be like thin pancake batter.
You can use any cooktop or skillet you want. Ladle out 1/4 cup batter and pour it onto the skillet then use the bottom of the ladle to thin the crepe. Start at the middle of the pancake and go in circles until you reach the edge. This will push the batter outward and make the crepe thinner. It should make a crepe about 6” in diameter. The recipe will make around 25 dosas this size.
As you cook them, cool the finished ones on a rack. When they are cool, you can put them on a cookie sheet in layers separated by wax paper or parchment and put them in the freezer. Once frozen, you can put them all into a gallon zip lock in the freezer. You can remove them easily, one or two at a time as you want, and use them with various meals. Enjoy!
Eating in alignment with the season can be tasty and fun. That is just the tip of the iceberg of what Ayurveda has to offer us modern women. Abundant wellness is awaiting you, beyond your wildest dreams. Be like Ethel, make the investment in yourself as soon as possible to experience greater vitality. This wisdom lasts a lifetime!
I hope to chat with you soon about the Vitality Circle and hope you have an opportunity to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on his birthday tomorrow.
Much love and light,
