Why we love this recipe
Start the day with Ayurvedic stewed apples to build an appetite for lunch, stimulate regular bowel movements, increase vitality and alertness, and provide a light but satisfying start to the day. Stewed pears also make a delicious breakfast. For something heartier, follow the stewed fruit with some chapati bread, warm milk, or sweet cooked cereal.
How to make stewed apples
- 1 whole fresh, sweet apple, cored and peeled
- 5 whole cloves
- ¼ cup of purified water
- Dice the apple into small pieces. Add cloves, apple and water in a covered pot.
- Cook the apple in ¼ cup of water until it is soft.
- Discard the cloves, cool slightly, and enjoy.
*Stewed apples may also be easily cooked in a crock pot (slow cooker) overnight on "low", or in the morning over a one hour period on "high." Fill the crock pot with 2 inches of water to prevent burning.
Starting your day with a light breakfast will help set you up for success. Jumpstart your day with dinacharya—the complete Ayurvedic daily routine—to promote balance and total wellbeing in mind and body.
