For Happy mood – What to eat?
Happiness and anger are both linked with the liver. Want to be less angry and impatient, feed your liver. Eat whole grains such as barley, amaranth (rajgeera), quinoa and whole oats. All vegetables fall in this category, especially sprouts, leafy greens, spring onions, radish leaves, turnip and mint leaves.
To feel joyous what you should eat?
Season of summer is for the heart that also includes small intestines which is in charge of happiness. To gear up you must eat whole grains such as brown rice and amaranth (rajgeera). Legumes such as sprouts and soybeans also work, as do bitter foods such as raddish, mustard leaves, onion and garlic. Make meals with vegetables like leafy greens, broccoli, cabbage, and seeds such as chia and flax.
The spleen and pancreas who make you anxious if they are feeling scratchy. Foxtail millet (also called cheena), starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, red pumpkin, carrots, onions and cabbage correspond to the taste of these organs and hence soothe it. Your spleen and pancreas also like black beans such as rajma, black soybeans and chickpeas.
Blues coming on the way…
Attention to your lungs. All whole grains and pungent vegetables such as radish (which is pungent and bitter), mustard leaves and mustard will help discharge mucous from the lungs and clear it up. Greens such as arugula, broccoli, wheat grass and parsley and also spirulina, rich in chlorophyll, help discharge negativity from this organ.
How do I feel more secure?
Cater to your kidneys. Their season is winter and taste is salty. All foods rich in magnesium help calm the nerves; all heart foods help here. Whole grains such as millet, barley, buckwheat (kuttu), fermented foods such as tofu, and whole beans, especially kidney beans should be on your plate. Spirulina has magnesium at its centre so it will help clear the kidneys. Though the kidneys like salt, too much of it may cause them to contract and make you feel more insecure. Eat small amounts of rock or sea salt.
Cheese, eggs, salt, baked products, chips and roasted products contract all organs and tense them up. Coffee, dairy products, sugar, preservatives such as MSG, excessive fruit and spices make you scattered and confused.
