When it has to be quick but healthy? Does this beetroot kidney bean salad definitely bring a solution.
Beetroot kidney bean salad for more balance
Referring to my Muladhara YogaFlow, I have created another series of Muladhara recipes for you. A breakfast recipe, lunch and dinner :). We gonna start with this salad tho. It’s a super quick one. I like to eat it for lunch, as I usually have a larger meal in the evening. Of course, you can do it the other way around.
What’s the Muladhara Chakra food all about?
The Muladhara Chakra is our root, it strengthens and grounds us when we are out of balance. To activate your Muladhara chakra, also called root chakra, you can do certain yoga asanas on the one hand and adjust your diet on the other hand.
What do I eat for more balance?
Since the root chakra means to ground yourself and find stability, root vegetables are a good option. Root vegetables include potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips, radishes, kohlrabi, carrots, beetroot, onions, garlic, ginger, and turmeric. Other foods such as proteins are important too. Here you can eat beans, especially the red ones. Since the root chakra is attributed with the color red, everything red is basically food to activate the root chakra. We have the strawberries, cherries, apples, pomegranates, tomatoes, raspberries, beetroot, radishes, grapefruit, blood oranges. For seeds, you can use pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, pine nuts, and sunflower seeds.
