Doshas // Ayurveda describes our life energy as 'dosha' which it says circulates in the body and determines our physiological activity. There are three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Do you know yours?
Legumes are generally astringent, which is one of the tastes that balances Kapha. Kapha can enjoy a wide variety of legumes, but they should generally be well-cooked and well-spiced to make them more digestible.
