THE HEALING AND DETOX BENEFITS OF KHICHARI
Grains and legumes contain partial amino acids on their own. When eaten together (as in khichari), the combination provides the body with 10 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. You can add vegetables for fibre and antioxidants; while a dollop of either ghee or coconut oil giving it a much-needed dose of healthy fats.
It’s a simple, wholesome, and nutritious meal which contains a combination of macro-nutrients such as carbohydrates, protein, and fiber. Khichdi also contains essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin B complex, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus.
It helps the burn excess body fat while keeping our blood sugar stable. At times juice cleanses strain and even deplete blood sugar reserves, we then feel extremely hungry, headachey, and irritable. When this happens, the body is under stress and the cleansing process is negatively effected by it. During a khichari cleanse, you are eating a delicious complete protein dish 2 times a day, so there is no stressful hunger response.
This cleanse helps heal the gut, healing and soothing to the intestinal wall. A khichari cleanse allows for digestion to be more at rest while providing the nutrition needed to purify the gut and nourish the body.
Cleansing supports our spiritual life. Due to it’s stabilizing and balancing nature, khichari supports feelings of inner peace and stillness within, allowing us to fully connect during out practices.
