Seasonal Cleanse Series Week 3: Ayurvedic Foods List

Ayurvedic Foods List

Ayurvedic Foods List

As you prepare for your cleanse, an important thing to keep in mind is that you want to be aware of which dosha you are cleansing. This will help you make choices around which foods to add to your grocery list when you go shopping for your cleanse.

Since it is spring time, most of you will be aiming to cleanse excess Kapha from the system.

While this is typically true for most, it is possible that you may be experiencing an excess of any of the doshas during your cleanse.

Whether it’s Vata, Pitta or Kapha that is elevated in your system, Ayurveda has a way of categorizing all foods so that you know which foods will send you more out of balance, or help to pacify your imbalance, and you’ll learn about some of those classification in this article!

Finding Your Imbalance

The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure you are clear on what your current imbalances are, and you can do this by speaking with someone who can help you assess what is out of balance for you.

I offer free sexy sacred balance assessment calls where we can talk 1-on-1 about what is out of balance so you have an idea of what to address when you do your cleanse.

Another option would be to take an online quiz.

My favorite is the constitution quiz offered by Banyan Botanicals!

While the quiz is incredibly insightful, sometimes it can still be hard to understand the nature of your imbalance, so if you aren’t 100% clear, feel free to reach out for a call or check in with your practitioner before starting your cleanse.

Foods for Balance


Once you are clear on what doshas are elevated, you can check out this list below to give you an idea of which foods will pacify which dosha,

This is not an all inclusive list, but it will give you more insight on what foods you can add to your fridge for your cleanse!

I’ve also labeled what’s in season so if you enjoy shopping at the farmers market, or you have a co-op near by, you should be able to find what you are looking for. It’s

also good practice to eat seasonal fruits and veggies!
