I have been craving the comfort and coziness that the darkness and brevity of these days of Autumn (Vata Season) have inspired in me and I’m sure, in you as well. I came to my kitchen yesterday with that in my heart and this is what was born from the simplest ingredients. This warm bowl of breakfast love will be on repeat for days. It offers moisture, substance, grounding, calm and the warmth of food made out of pause, presence and a longing for re connection.

Not to mention that this oatmeal bowl is fantastically Vata Pacifying. Every spoonful is medicine for your anxious and erratic nerves and your digestive system will heave an overdue sigh of relief. Featuring our Ayurvedic Cacao powder and our Adapt-to-Life Potion, you can grab the ingredients tonight and make this tomorrow morning. Let me know what you think in the comments below…



1/2 cup oatmeal (plain, not steel-cut)
1 cup water
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tbsp coconut milk (check your labels, find one that is free of weird chemicals)
1 tsp Ayurvedic Cacao
1 tsp Adapt-to-Life Potion
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
pinch of ground cardamom (or grind your own!)
pinch of cinnamon
3 chopped dates
1/2 banana (optional, if you’re digestion is highly compromised, skip this)


  1. Heat the coconut oil on med-low in a sauce pan
  2. Toss in the ginger and dates
  3. Once they are sizzling, add in the cinnamon, cardamom and Ayurvedic Cacao
  4. Stir and let the spices mingle
  5. Add the oats and water and turn the heat up to med-high

  7. Let simmer and add the coconut milk and banana
