Summer Sattvic Foods—Cooked Cucumber

Summer Sattvic Foods—Cooked Cucumber

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, but they are also rejuvenating—leaving you feeling light, energized, and ready for your next summer adventure!

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!

Have you ever thought to cook a cucumber before? I never did! You might be like me and only thought to use them raw—sliced for cucumber water or salads. I was surprised to find that Myra's recipe was so simple and was delighted by the results of my meal. Delicious, moist, and sweet! I especially loved the combination of spices she suggests: mineral salt, fresh ginger, and dill.
