Summer Sattvic Foods—Coconut Mint Chutney
Ready to feel light, grounded, and peaceful in body and mind? We’ve got three days of foods and recipes to get you started. Join us as Myra Lewin of Hale Pule Ayurveda shares from her immense knowledge of Sattvic foods, and teaches us a few tips along the way!
Sattvic foods are a wonderful way to counteract the intensity of summertime. The heat from the summer sun and the surge of energy used during summer activities like swimming, hiking, and traveling, though they may be enjoyable, can easily cause imbalances in your body and mind.
Sattvic foods are not only refreshing at this time of year, they are also rejuvenating—leaving you feeling light, energized, and ready for your next summer adventure!
This Coconut Mint Chutney recipe is a real treat. Homemade condiments like chutney can bring a blast of flavor to your meal and this one, in particular, imparts an enjoyable cooling quality to your digestive system and body. You might notice that Myra doesn’t give specific measurements in her recipe… which gives you space to discover what ratio of ingredients you love the most! Personally, I’ve experimented with adding extra mint and lime, the results of which were delicious. I ended up with about 1 cup of chutney after following this recipe, which was enough to spice up more than 4 dishes! Have you tried Myra’s recipe? What alterations did you make to suit your tastes?
