Breakfast: An Example of Satisfaction

In Ayurveda, breakfast is considered a light meal or nourishing snack to be eaten only if hungry because the digestive fires are not strong in the morning. It is never a main meal. A typical non-Ayurvedic breakfast may include cereal with milk, toast with butter, orange juice, tea or coffee. This is considered a light meal, and both Pitta and Vata can start the day this wayminus the orange juice. Ayurveda does not recommend drinking grapefruit, orange, or other sour juices at the same meal that milk is served. But, with the exception of tea and coffee, everything else on this menu increases Kapha. At first Kapha might feel full, but since the food lacks balance in the tastes and qualities best for Kapha, it is not really satisfying. As a result, after a
short time Kapha will want to snack. In the American tradition of the coffee break, Kapha might have a midmorning pastry and more coffee or tea. Again Kapha-increasing and not satisfying. And snacking so frequently weakens the power of agni for its real work at the main meal around noon. A good breakfast for Kapha is a warm or hot drink and something light and dry, such as rice cakes, a slice of corn bread with a little honey, or thin-sliced toast, eaten plain or spread with a little ghee or nut butter.
