The Vata, Pitta, and Kapha raw cacao bars.

A·yur·ve·da   äyərˈvādə,-ˈvēdə/
noun: Ayurveda
The traditional Hindu system of medicine, which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing.

The depths of Ayurveda take a lifetime to learn. But the concept is simple and the knowledge should be introduced to all people, starting in youth.  Recognizing the principles of Ayurveda in your day brings an understanding and even patience to you and your surroundings.

These three bars are a taste of bringing balance to you through Ayurveda.  Each bar is based on one of the three doshas in Ayurveda.

do·sha  ˈdōSHə/
(In Ayurvedic medicine) each of three energies believed to circulate in the body and govern physiological activity.

Vata:  Think about the wind, movement; insomnia and multitasking.  The best way to balance a Vata imbalance is to bring in heavier, more grounding and sedating qualities.
The Vata bar includes Raw Cacao, Dates, Almonds, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, *Coconut Palm Sugar, Anise, Vanilla Bean and Sea Salt.

Pitta:  Think Fire and Water.  A Pitta imbalance causes heat that can burn as a temper or as an inflamed skin and digestive system.  To balance Pitta, think cooling and sweet.  Romanticize the Pitta in you.
The Pitta Bar includes Raw Cacao, Dates, Coconut, Hibiscus, *Coconut Palm Sugar, Vanilla Bean and Rose Water.

Kapha:  Kapha is water, heavy and dense, from mellow to lethargic.  A kapha imbalance needs stimulation.  The Kapha bar is slightly spicy and drying, to heat you up a little and get you ready to move.
The Kapha Bar includes Raw Cacao, Dates, Turmeric, Ginger, Black Pepper, Sea Salt and *Raw Honey.

*I want you to recognize that each bar is primarily sweetened with fresh dates.  And then a dosha specific sweetener is added  to assist bringing balance to each dosha.  A little sweetener to assist in the balancing act.  Fun, huh?!
